Teng Chang Yeow Should Be Courageous Enough To Say Unequivocally That Lim Guan Eng Lied When Lim Guan Eng Said That Not A Single Cent Has Been Paid To The Contractor For The Under-Sea Tunnel Project But Only for The Three Main Highways, So That I Can Prove In Court That I Am Telling The Truth.(e/m/c)

Press Conference Statement By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng In Komtar, George Town, Penang On 17.1.2018.

Penang BN Chairman Teng Chang Yeow should be courageous enough to say unequivocally that Lim Guan Eng lied when Lim Guan Eng said that not a single cent has been paid to the contractor for the under-sea tunnel project but only for the three main highways, so that I can prove in court that I am telling the truth. Teng refused to accept my statement that not a single cent was paid for the undersea tunnel project and claimed that the Penang state government is lying even though Penang state EXCO Lim Hock Seng had repeatedly stated that any payment made to the contractor was for the three main highways?

The Penang State Government Will Not Be Bullied By The BN Government’s Political Witch Hunt Into The Tunnel And 3 Road Projects Nor Bow Down To Dirty Tactics Of Intimidation, Fake News And Abuse Of Power To Sabotage This Transport Plan To Alleviate Traffic Congestion.(e/c)

Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng In George Town, Penang On 16.1.2018.

The Penang state government reminds Malaysian Anti-Corruption Comission(MACC) deputy chief commissioner Datuk Seri Azam Baki that his comments that investigation into the under-sea tunnel and three main highways in Penang would also include those in the media, must necessarily not be based solely on reports in the BN media. MACC should also rely on reports raised in the independent and neutral online news media to prevent any negative perception that its investigations are driven by the fake news in the BN news media.

Abdul Rahman Dahlan Should Not Try To Sabotage My Right To A Fair Trial To Prove The Corruption Charges Against Me Is A Political Conspiracy In The Looming 14th General Elections But Focus On Explaining Why The Prosecution Is Amending The Charges Against Me 1 ½ Years After I Was First Charged.

Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister And DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 14.1.2018.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Abdul Rahman Dahlan has again resorted to theatrics by implying that I deliberately attempted to delay my trial for corruption. This is untrue. Any person accused is bestowed the fundamental constitutional right to defend himself fully in court, especially to observe the basic principles of natural justice that accords the right to a fair trial.

Can The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission(MACC) Take Action Against “Sources” Leaking Confidential Information Of MACC Investigations To The BN-Media On The Tunnel and 3 Main Highway Project That Was Conducted By Open Competitive Tender?

Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng In George Town, Penang On 13.1.2018.

I am surprised that MACC appears “comfortable” with extensive press reports in the BN mass media, of MACC investigations into the tunnel and 3 main highways project, which is supposed to be confidential, given statutory protection to prevent investigations from being prejudiced and those leaking information of investigations can be severely punished. Despite the repeated failures of the BN media such as The Star, Berita Harian and Utusan Malaysia, to show proof of their false allegations, they continue to print reports of MACC investigations quoting MACC sources.

Penang Is The First State Government That Practices Open Competitive Tenders, An Achievement That Earned Commendation From Transparency International.(e/c)

Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng In Komtar, George Town On 7.1.2018.

Penang is the first state government in Malaysia to implement the practice of open competitive tenders, an achievement that earned commendation from Transparency International(TI). Irresponsible elements ignore this excellent record when trying to run down and smear the state government’s image that there is no open tender system.

Open competitive tender system is one of the mainstays of CAT governance in Penang of competency, accountability and transparency, that has allowed the state government to record savings in expenditures. Open competitive tender system is one of the principal factors that led to annual Budget surpluses since 2008, a doubling of our asset reserves and a record 90% reduction of state government debt that allows Penang to have the lowest debts in the country.

For the first 6 months of 2017, Penang topped the investment charts in Malaysia with RM7.7 billion and 8,162 new jobs.(e/c)

Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng In Komtar, George Town On 7.1.2018.

I wish to clarify my comments yesterday, which reported me stating that there will be no worker retrenchments in Penang, in reference to Malaysian Employers Federation(MEF)’s expectation of 50,000 retrenchments of workers in 2018. This is not correct. What I meant is that any worker retrenchments in Penang will not affect Penang, because there will be more jobs chasing workers than worker chasing jobs. Penang has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the Malaysia at 2%.

On behalf of the Penang State Government, I am delighted to be present here today at the Re-Dedication of the Church of the Assumption and the Launch of the Roman Catholic Museum, Diocese of Penang on the very first day of the year 2018.

The church is the embodiment of unity as can be seen by the many people of all races and religions who helped to contribute and work to make the restoration of the Church of the Assumption a success and the setting up of the Roman Catholic Museum, Diocese of Penang a reality.

The “Never Say Die” Spirit Of The Penang People Will Let Us Bounce Back From Setbacks To Allow Penang To Be On Course To Be A Developed Economy And The First Green State In Malaysia In 5 Years.(e/c)

Penang 2018 New Year Day Message By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng In Komtar, George Town On 1.1.2018.

The “never say die” spirit of the Penang people will let us bounce back from setbacks to allow Penang to be on course to be a developed economy and the first green state in Malaysia in 5 years. This spirit is evident from the worst natural disaster in history on 4-5 November 2017, when a heavy rainstorm lashed Penang with 40 mph winds that lifted a ferry up from the sea and pushed it inland, and 372 mm or one and a half months of rain fell in a mere 15 hours.
