GEORGE TOWN: A DAP assemblyman has called on Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng to withdraw from chairing the State Planning Committee (SPC) or Land Committee pending his corruption trial.

"Usually, we urge a politician to take leave while allowing investigations on the charges against him to be completed. If such a suggestion is difficult to accept, then a more progressive step can be taken where, for the sake of justice, the leader is advised to not chair and manage things in the SPC or Land Committee for the time being until there is a final court decision," said Teh Yee Cheu (DAP-Tanjung Bungah), in reference to Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng's corruption trial.
