More donations for CM as LGExit debate rages; Dr M fires salvo

KINI ROUNDUP Here are the key headlines from yesterday you may have missed, in brief

More donations pour in for Penang CM

30 Puchong residents gathered to donate RM10 each to DAP to show solidarity with Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, despite the party ending its donation drive for his bail money on Friday, following the corruption charges against him on Thursday.

Penang Umno deputy chairperson Reezal Merican Naina Merican however said Lim should not be burdening the public with donations to pay for his RM1 million bail.

DAP defended the drive saying they did not have a rich Arab donor to fund them, while MCA fumed that the bail had already been paid, making the donation drive unnecessary.

LGExit debate rages on

The debate on whether Lim should stay in office, take leave, or step down as Penang chief minister raged on, as Lim took a bow to thank Pakatan Harapan for their continued support for him to stay on.

Selangor Umno chief Noh Omar however said Lim would be suspended if he was a member of the ruling Malay party, while Perkasa chief Ibrahim Ali said he would quit if he was in Lim's position

Lim's father, Lim Kit Siang meanwhile said he would go on a nationwide tour to hear from Malaysians whether or not Guan Eng should stay or step down.

Former Selangor menteri besar Mohamad Khir Toyo meanwhile called the charges against Lim "poetic justice".
