PCM contest Guan Eng in both seats

PRAI: Parti Cinta Malaysia (PCM) will field two candidates for the coming 14th General Election, both against Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.

Its deputy president Huan Cheng Guan, 57, will contest the Bagan parliamentary seat while party member R Manikandan, 40, will contest the Air Putih state seat.

Both seats are being held by incumbent, Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.

Huan said the party leadership had decided to only contest the two 'hot seats' in Penang, the New Straits Times reported.

Elaborating, Huan said Penang had been plagued by numerous issues and scandals since being led by the DAP-led Penang government 10 years ago.

He added that there had been more than 100 flash floods in the state between 2013 and 2017, and the state land had been sold rampantly.

"What is left of the future generation? Penang is now a badly failed state.

"I am aware that I may lose the fight but I must put up a fight. I will take up all these issues to reveal the state government's numerous shortcomings and weaknesses.

"I will only talk on issues and not hit below the belt," he said, warning DAP's 'macai' (henchmen) to respect his intention or risks "having more or their dirt revealed."

Huan said the DAP-led Penang government was not serious in addressing the many issues and more interested in politicking.

"My aim is just to get Lim out and I will quit politics for good.

"We are okay if other opposition leaders lead Penang…just not Lim," he stressed.

Huan also fired the first salvo at his opponent, saying that of the more than 2,000 candidates to contest in both parliamentary and state seats nationwide in the coming election, Lim is the only one facing corruption charges.

"From what I know, all the other candidates are clean and have no problem.

"In DAP's case, the clean ones are axed while they keep those with issues.

"By convention, Lim should step aside and take leave to clear his name, and only then make a comeback," he added.

Meanwhile, Manikandan, an IT contractor, said he would raised local issues faced by the people of Air Putih.

"I am a local and I know the ins and outs of Air Putih. We have been hit by flash floods, landslides and many others.

"However, there have no solutions, but the people's eyes have been covered not to see all these issues," he added.

Manikandan said although it would not be easy, he was willing to take on the challenge.

Both Bagan and Air Putih are expected to see multi-cornered fights.

Yesterday, Penang Barisan Nasional announced that it would field MCA Youth chief Lee Beng Seng in Bagan while Tang Heap Seng in Air Putih. - Berita Daily
