Guan Eng should temporarily step aside
Just like how his party had been calling for Najib to take a leave of absence due to 1MDB concerns.
But Najib has not even been implicated nor charged for any financial wrongdoing.
Here Guan Eng has been explicitly charged in court for corruption. DAP should now cakap serupa bikin.
Guan Eng must go on leave immediately as CM, following the same principle that the opposition preached to apply on the PM. He can resume his chief ministership once the cloud over his head is removed by an innocent verdict.
After all, Penang has not one but two deputy chief ministers who can take over the running of the administration in the interim.
Or are they merely DAP’s mandores — Mohd Rashid Hasnon the mandore for Penang Malays and P. Ramasamy the mandore for Penang Indians?
Racist, racist, racist!
It does appear that the Malay DCM I and the Indian DCM II are models of the DAP’s race politics pioneered in Penang.
It is such a “racist” system, that is if we were to follow the DAP’s own loudly proclaimed (everybody else is “racist-racist-racist-racist!”) standards. A Chinese kapitan to look after the Penang Chinese while his Malay and Indian henchmen look after Malay and Indian affairs respectively.
Hey DAP, aren’t we all Malaysians First?
Many BN states have solely the MB on the job and no deputy, much less Deputy II. The Malay MB can look after his state warga who are not Malay.
So how come the Chinese CM of a small state like Penang is unable to look after the non-Chinese Penangites but instead needs to racially compartmentize Malay and Indian DCM responsibilities?
Why must Guan Eng institutionalize such a racist system as DCM I Malay and DCM II Indian?
The DAP’s ubah is actually all for the worse.
DAP does not practise meritocracy
Note that Guan Eng discards his dispensable Malay deputies like used tissue. His DCMs so far in eight short years have been:
- Mohammad Fairus Khairuddin (March 2008-April 2009)
- Mansor Othman (June 2009-May 2013)
- Mohd Rashid Hasnon (present)
Penang does not practise meritocracy because the DCM I post is window dressing reserved only for Malays. The holder’s selection criterion is on account of his race alone.
When Fairus (and later Mansor) vacated their posts, Ramasamy who has been DCM II since 2008 was not promoted to become DCM I even though going by years of service, he had more seniority than Mansor and Rashid at the time that DCM I post needed to be filled.
DAP has not promoted Rama because he’s an Indian who is confronted with the glass ceiling build by the party fishing for Malay votes.

Prayers & thoughts, thoughts & prayers preacher-hypocrite
DAP pretends to be “colour blind” and “beyond race” but how the government it leads has chosen to appoint the Malay quota DCM I reveals how racial (“racist”) the party is.
Yet they endlessly criticize the BN’s tried-and-tested communal formula.
What the DAP’s behaviour, in making its race-based appointments to the Guan Eng administration, shows is unmitigated hypocrisy.
And below is the DAP’s greatest hypocrite of all; the same YB who had supported Anwar’s Sept 16 move to buy BN frogs.
So for Hannah Yeoh, corruption is merely relative to the amount involved – see her tweet below – and not a black-and-white transgression of the law.
Just like when the Perak government changed hands from Pakatan to BN due to Aduns shifting allegiances was not okay with DAP and its rabid Rottweilers.
However, if the federal government had changed hands from BN to Pakatan to due Anwar’s attempted purchase of MPs, then that would have been alright. The double-standard Hannah Yeoh was a staunch supporter of Anwar’s move, remember?
What a bloody hypocrite!
