Chong Meng pulls out over disagreement on debate topics
THE highly anticipated debate between Barisan Nasional candidate Datuk Dr Lee Chong Meng and incumbent MP Fong Kui Lun of the DAP is off because the Bukit Bintang rivals cannot agree on the topic.
Lee, who had issued a challenge to Fong, for an open debate, has decided not to go ahead with the debate scheduled for the weekend.
“I have many other places that I need to go to and see my constituents. I do not want to waste my time debating with him (Fong) when he is not interested in discussing the matters concerning the constituency,” Lee said after visiting the Brickfields market yesterday.
Quoting a Chinese daily which reported that Fong would “jatuh standard” if he were to debate with Lee on local matters, Lee said: “How can he feel insulted discussing matters concerning the constituency since he is the MP?
“This is absurd. I think he does not know what he is doing,” he said, adding that he would arrange for a debate for Fong with the Prime Minister as the former was more interested in discussing other topics.
“Brickfields is a very tough place for us. We have specifically printed brochures and leaflets in Tamil for our Indian constituents,” he said, adding that MCA had produced 10,000 copies of video compact discs to be distributed in the area.
On Wednesday, Lee who was giving a public talk, said he was not greedy and all he wanted was just five years.
“I am not asking for a lot. Please give me a chance to prove that I am a competent and I can deliver,” he told a crowd of about 450 people.
Hello? Did i heard wrongly saying that you only need 5 years to prove your self? People give you chance previously, but your dirty mouth betrayed your own image. How will people still trust your dirty mouth? Don't say that it was the past. I think you have not grown up any better. May i suggest that you go back to your home town and relax. Politic is not for you because you are not qualified ! Simply say people bad! You lagi bad! GO home la!
