GEORGE TOWN: May 27, 2008 By Audrey Dermawan
Former chief minister Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon has finally broken his silence on his views about the new state government, saying that it should concentrate on governing the island states instead of harping on petty issues.
Koh, who is also acting Gerakan president, said the new administration under Lim Guan Eng should do what it felt was best for Penang.
"He has been complaining to the press that I have no time to meet him.
"I feel he should do what he deems fit for the state and its people. There is no urgency for me to meet him at this point," he said, adding he would only meet Lim if it was necessary to do so.
Koh said the DAP had been critical of what the previous administration had done before this.
Therefore, he said it was pointless for Lim to seek an appointment to meet him.
