GEORGE TOWN: Pakatan Harapan leaders have rallied behind Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng who was charged with two counts of corruption on Thursday.

State PKR chairman Datuk Mansor Othman said the coalition is giving its full support to Lim to continue as Chief Minister.

Amanah vice-president Datuk Dr Mujahid Yusof Rawa said the charges against Lim were a clear move to remove him from his position.

On Thursday, Guan Eng claimed trial to using his position as a public servant to obtain gratification for himself and his wife Betty Chew by approving an application by Magnificent Emblem to convert two lots of agricultural land in the southwest district for residential purposes during a state planning committee meeting on July 18, 2014.

He also denied another charge of using his position to obtain gratification by purchasing his house from businesswoman Phang Li Koon at RM2.8mil, which was below the property’s market value of RM4.27mil on July 28, 2015.

State DAP chairman Chow Kon Yeow said Pakatan would embark on a road show to explain the issue to the people beginning Saturday at Dewan Sri Pinang.
