PENANG, 25 March 2009: Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng has denied talk that his Chief of Staff (COS) Jeff Ooi has resigned from the post.
“He still plays an important role in assisting me, specifically in finding ways to further develop Penang,” he told reporters here when asked about a news report today that Ooi, the member of parliament for Jelutong, would be handing in his letter of resignation soon to leave the post.
Lim had earlier launched Penang’s official tourism website (www.VisitPenang.gov.my).
He added that plenty of rumours were going around that Bukit Bendera MP Lew Chin Tong would also be stepping down from his staff team and that all these were not true. — Bernama
