We need you in Batu Gajah, Guan Eng tells Po Kuan - The Star

IPOH: The DAP is pleading with Fong Po Kuan to contest in Batu Gajah in the general election.

DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng said yesterday that the party and the people needed Fong.

“Fong has the ability, capacity and experience to continue to contribute as an MP.

“I know it was not her intention, but it is definite that without Fong, Batu Gajah will not be a safe seat,” he told a press conference.

Describing Fong’s announcement as a “shock”, Lim said he had cancelled all his programmes yesterday to meet Perak party leaders.

He said that he was still reeling in shock from Fong’s “abrupt announcement” but would try to convince her to stand in the elections.
