COMMENT DAP secretary-general and Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng has done himself and Pakatan Harapan’s image no good by removing two PKR state assembly reps from government-linked companies (GLCs) for abstaining on a motion tabled by Umno to halt land reclamation.

The move harms Guan Eng’s rise up the unofficial pecking order in Harapan, the newly-formed opposition coalition that bands together DAP, PKR and Parti Amanah Negara.

The coalition is without a paramount leader after Anwar Ibrahim was jailed a year ago following the loss of his sodomy appeal in the Federal Court. His wife, Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, is the stand-in.

Keep Malaysiakini independent!

Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.

Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.

Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.

Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
