MCA president Dr Chua Soi Lek said he dared to admit his past indiscretion and accused his chief rival Lim Guan Eng of being incapable of doing the same.
“Will Lim Guan Eng have the courage like me to admit fault, apologise and resign from my ministerial post as well as all my positions in the party?” asked Chua.
Chua said this in a press release today, just hours after Lim held a press conference to deny having an affair with his former staff member, as alleged by Malacca MCA chief Gan Tian Loo at the state legislative assembly sitting.
Lim, the DAP secretary-general and Penang chief minister, had challenged Gan to repeat the allegation in public to allow him to initiate a defamation suit.
“Let my wife and me prove in court that MCA lied, that Lim Guan Eng is not (MCA president, right) Dr Chua Soi Lek,” said Lim.
