SEPANG: Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng should first answer questions posed by MCA deputy president Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong on the controversial Penang undersea tunnel issue.
MCA president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said instead of challenging him for a debate on the issue, Lim must provide answers to all the questions asked by Wee.
"Why does he want to challenge me for debate on the issue when Wee was the one had invited Lim for a debate and posed questions on the issue?
"This is as if he is trying to divert from the issue and avoid answering the questions," he told reporters at the launch of six new KLIA Express trains at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) here today.
Last week, Wee had invited Lim for a debate to settle the bickering on the tunnel issue after Lim had labelled the MCA man a “despicable human being”.
Lim however had stated that he would only debate the issue with Liow.
He said it was only fitting for him to debate Liow instead of MCA number two who is Wee, based on the principle of political protocol.
On a separate matter, Liow also said that the unity of MCA Johor is unquestionable as the party and the people in the state continue to be united.
"MCA is doing well here and the people are together.We are confident that Barisan Nasional (BN) will continue to garner the support of the people in the state," he added.
