MCA president is disappointed Lim had dragged him into his alleged sex scandal while the DAP leader thinks MCA is not qualified to debate on BN government policies.
Speaking to the reporters about an hour before the debate, Chua said he was disappointed with Lim and his wife Betty Chew for dragging him (Chua) into the Penang CM’s alleged sex scandal.
“I am disappointed with the behaviour of Lim and his wife, who have dragged me into this whole affair,” he said.
“Why bring the whole world in? Why drag me into this? Deny the allegations is enough, no need to drag me into this,” Chua said.
The issue about Lim’s alleged sex scandal surfaced at the Malacca state assembly sitting last Monday when Malacca MCA chairman Gan Tian Loo had asked Betty, who is the Kota Laksamana state rep, to respond to claims that Lim had a secret relationship with a former staff.
Betty had refused to answer the question in the State Legislative Assembly and had challenged Gan to repeat it outside the assembly so that she can sue him for defamation.
Lim meanwhile had denied the allegations and had lashed out at MCA chief Chua for letting his party men to spread lies. He had also said that “I am no Chua Soi Lek”, alluding to Chua’s own sex scandal in 2008.
He also challenged Chua to raise the scandal at the debate today so that he could sue the MCA leader for defamation.
When reporters asked Lim to respond to Chua’s statement, the former once again dared Chua to repeat the allegations during the debate.
“Let the people decide, who had really misbehaved,” Lim said of the allegations.
