Anwar apologises to Guan Eng

PENANG, 22 April 2009: Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng considers the problem between him and Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as having been resolved following the Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) advisor’s apology.

Lim today confirmed that Anwar had apologised to him for failing to inform him of the resignation of former Deputy Chief Minister I, Mohammad Fairus Khairuddin, as the state assemblyperson for Penanti.

“I don’t want the matter to prolong,” he told reporters, here today.     

Earlier, Lim, who is also DAP secretary-general, had expressed unhappiness that Anwar had not informed him of Mohammad Fairus’s resignation as a state assemblyperson.

Following Lim’s outburst, PKR deputy president Dr Syed Husin Ali released a press statement, asking Lim to keep mum to the press on the issue.

Mohammad Fairus, who resigned as Deputy Chief Minister I effective 8 April, later resigned from the state assembly on 16 April. — Bernama

    What’s an apology among real friends?

    Compare this to what our former CM got not too long ago.

  2. Paul says:

    That’s the way things should be. Owning up to your own mistakes. And for the one being offended, big-hearted enough to forgive. PR – hope you grow from strength to strength and may you be entrenched in the states of Penang, Kedah, Selangor and Kelantan, while you work to take over the other states. We know that you have limitations, but work at it. The rakyat is reasonable, they don’t expect miracles from you guys (and gals) but just do your level best. The rakyat is behind you fully.

  3. Singam says:

    Now that this is settled, PAS wants to contest Penanti. Yet another headache for Anwar. PR appears to be coming undone just as Penanti looms.

    Interesting events await unfolding.
