GEORGE TOWN: DAP secretary--general Lim Guan Eng is tired and fed--up with having to debate with MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek and hopes to take on other Barisan Nasional leaders.
"I have debated with Chua twice already. I am tired of repeating our policies," he said after handing out aid to two fire victims in Air Itam yesterday.
"If I have to do it for the third time, I would be fed--up.
"In any case, why do I have to only debate with another Chinese leader? I can debate with a Malay BN leader. How about (Deputy Prime Minister) Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin? Why not?"
On Sunday, Lim and Chua took part in a second round of debate titled `Whose Policies Benefit the Country More?' in an Asian Strategic and Leadership Institute (Asli)--organised session in Subang Jaya.
Asked who emerged the winner, Lim, who is also the Penang chief minister, said he would leave it to the people to decide.
He said the debate that was anticipated by Malaysians would be the one between Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
"People are looking forward to watching the debate between Najib and Anwar as this would enable people to decide who makes a better PM. Please give us the opportunity to make that comparison," he said.
Lim said that until that debate was conducted, he would rather choose to stay off debates because he did not want to repeat himself.
