GEORGE TOWN, May 10 (Bernama) -- More than 70 members of the Malay

right-wing group Perkasa here gathered peacefully at the Tun Abdul Razak complex

(Komtar) and urged Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng to step down for allegedly

having failed to protect the interests of the people in the state.

They rode motorcycles and distributed 4,000 flyers bearing the words "Lim

Guan Eng AntiMelayu" (Lim Guan Eng is anti-Malay) all the way from Lim''s

residence in Jalan Pinhorn to Komtar, where the office of the chief minister is

located.

At Lim''s residence, they hung a photograph of the chief minister and a

wreath on the fence as a symbolic gesture of rejecting Lim''s administration in

the state.

They gathered for about 30 minutes at Komtar and held aloft a banner

questioning the reluctance of the chief minister to address their seven demands.

Penang Perkasa chief Mohd Rizuad Mohd Azudin said they urged the DAP to

select a local Chinese for the post of chief minister because Lim was not a

local and allegedly did not understand the problems of the people in the state.

PERKASA-LIM 2 (LAST) GEORGE TOWN

He also said that Lim should step down for allegedly being reluctant to

consider the people''s problems and being irrational in mixing politics with the

people''s interests.

Mohd Rizuad told reporters Perkasa had pressed for its seven demands in a

series of demonstrations but Lim had refused to meet them to discuss the issues,

which included a mosque site in Bayan Mutiara, people''s housing, compensation

for owners of stalls demolished by the Penang Island Municipal Council (MPPP)

and the safety of the solar panel plant in Batu Kawan.
