Pixs Lim Guan Eng from BBC.
Civil society has been clamouring for this for a long time. Today, we hear DAP LIm Guan Eng, sworn in as 4th Penang chief minister say:
“Attempts will be made to restore local government elections in the state; meanwhile, professionals and NGO representatives will be appointed”. (Chin Huat)
(update) Guan Eng/DAP also promised a Freedom of Information Act and added that assets of officials will be declared soon.
Selangor and Penang have promised local elections. What about the other Opposition states?
Good for you, DAP, and good for Penang. We’re on our way to a good start.
Ps. Past summonses for hawkers licenses and parking will be waived too. Now, isn’t that like having Christmas and whatever festival you name it, twice a year.
