Announcing the candidates for the August 12 PRN in Penang, DAP chief Anthony Loke says the mission is to win this PRN. “Our mission is to retain the Penang, Selangor and Negeri Sembilan governments, and if possible, win another or two more state governments.” This will help strengthen the Unity Government.
The mission impossible
While he did not say it, the mission impossible for PH-BN is to topple PAS in the three states it controls. Nevertheless, Besides Ramasamy, also dropped from contesting is DAP Women’s chief Chong Eng. Meanwhile, DAP will have Lim Guan Eng and Penang Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow to defend their seats. Together with them, Zairil Khir Johari (Tanjung Bunga) and Jagdeep Singh Deo (Datok Keramat) will also defend their seats.
