Guan Eng advises Pakatan members to ‘zip it’ after row

(The Star) – Penang DAP com­mittee member Zulkifli Mohd Noor, who has suggested that PKR make way in several seats at the next general election, has been told to refrain from making any further comments by his party boss.

DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng, who is also Chief Minister, called this an “advice” while party chairman Karpal Singh has described Zulkifli’s statement as “unwarranted”.

Lim said all Pakatan Rakyat members in the state should stop making statements in the press against each other, adding that problems should be discussed and resolved internally.

He was asked to comment on statements made by Zulkifli and Penang PKR information chief Johari Kassim.

Zulkifli had suggested that PKR make way for DAP in at least one parliamentary seat and five state seats in Penang for Malay DAP candidates to contest in the next general election.

Johari responded by saying Zulkifli should not make unwise suggestions since he is a senior party member.
