GEORGE TOWN, March 8 — Lim Guan Eng should prove Pakatan Harapan’s (PH) sincerity on its two-term limit proposal by disqualifying himself to be chief minister if the pact retains Penang in the general election, Parti Rakyat Malaysia’s (PRM) Chew Seng Tung said today.
The PRM Penang island election campaign director pointed out that Lim was already a two-term CM, having assumed the office in 2008.
“I suggest that he make an announcement that he will no longer be the chief minister after GE14 to prove his sincerity in wanting to implement a two-term limit for the prime minister, chief minister and mentri besar posts,” he said.
He added that Selangor and Penang could both pass laws to formalise this pledge now, even before the general election.
Chew added that doing so would prove that the pact’s pledge was more than rhetoric.
“These two PH states can call a special state legislative assembly to pass a law implementing the two-term limit before the elections,” he said.
He then went on to suggest that the proposal was just an empty promise, noting that DAP’s Tanjung Bungah assemblyman Teh Yee Cheu repeatedly proposed this two-term limit but was ignored.
He said this is why he finds it strange that suddenly PH is proposing a two-term limit now.
Lim yesterday announced that all PH parties have agreed to include the two-term limit in the pact’s manifesto for the 14th general elections.

GEORGE TOWN: Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng has been challenged to show his sincerity by announcing that he will relinquish his position after the next general election in view of the proposed two-term limit for the post of chief minister.
Parti Rakyat Malaysia's (PRM) election campaign chairman Chew Seng Tung (pix) told a press conference that it was necessary for Lim to make the major announcement.
He said this would give people a better idea of Lim's intentions, as he had helmed the position for two terms since the Opposition took over the state administration in 2008.
He also dismissed Pakatan Harapan's (PH) proposal that such a ruling would only come into effect after the 14th general election, adding that previous tenures for all positions should be taken into account as well.
Lim said on Wednesday that the term-limit proposal would be included in the pact's general election manifesto.
Chew also questioned if Lim was truly agreeable with the proposal or if he was merely following PH's strategy to win the elections.
He also questioned if Lim would hold the position if PH wins Penang and not the federal government, adding that he should implement the proposal now.
"All these must be made clear, " Chew stressed. - Sun Daily, 8/3/3018
