Gerakan rejects Keng Yaik's resignation

KUALA LUMPUR, Tuesday 5 October 2010 (Bernama) -- Gerakan's Central Committee (CWC) has decided to reject Tun Dr Lim Keng Yaik's resignation as the party's advisor.

Gerakan president Tan Sri Koh Tsu Koon said the CWC leaders, who deliberated on the matter for almost three hours since 7 p.m. here today, instead called on Dr Lim to reconsider his decision.

"This is in Gerakan's interests," he told reporters when met after the meeting.

Also present were Gerakan's women's wing head Datuk Tan Lian Hoe, Gerakan Youth head Lim Si Pin, who is also Dr Lim's son, and Penang Gerakan chairman Datuk Dr Teng Hock Nam.

Koh, however, did not want to elaborate further on the matter.

Dr Lim, who had been with Gerakan for 36 years, had handed over the leadership of the party to Koh in April 2007.

Yesterday, he (Dr Lim) dropped a bombshell that he was quitting as Gerakan's advisor saying he no longer had any confidence in Koh's leadership.

He claimed that Koh was not showing leadership in the issue of Penang Gerakan members seeking the ouster of Teng at an extraordinary general meeting in Penang on Sunday.

He had flayed Koh for saying that he (Koh) would be attending MCA's annual general meeting in Kuala Lumpur the same day instead of the Penang EGM, which he (Dr Lim) said was more important.
