Elected representatives must be people-friendly, says Lim


Xx: Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng received a warm welcome by the children attending English Camp at Bukit Bendera community centre.

PENANG Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said “change” must come with results.

“We must let the people see the changes brought about by the state government. We must show the results which have brought improvement to people’s life.

“Elected representatives must also be more people-friendly by interacting more with them,” he said in his speech at the launching of the Bukit Bendera Community Centre in College Square, Pulau Tikus, Penang, recently.

Bukit Bendera MP Zairil Khir Johari, who was also present, said he called his service centre a community centre because he wanted it to serve his constituents.

“If we just call it service centre, people will think that it is a place for them to lodge complaints. I want my centre to be a place where the constituents can organise their community events here.”

Penang DAP chairman Chow Kon Yeow said meeting the people and speaking out for the people was the responsiblity of an elected representative.

He added that Zairil should perform well with the help of the four state assemblymen in Bukit Bendera.

Also present were Kebun Bunga assemblyman Cheah Kah Peng, Tanjong MP Ng Wei Aik, Bukit Mertajam MP Steven Sim Chee Keong and Penang municipal councillor Abdul Halim Salleh.
