Gerakan secretary-general Chia Kwang Chye has some “friendly advice” for party stalwart Toh Kin Woon (pic): Don’t attend anymore events organised by PKR. This was reported in the Kwong Wah Chinese-language newspaper today.
Kin Woon was among the crowd of between 10,000 and 20,000 at Anwar’s ceramah in Permatang Pauh on Saturday night (9 Aug).
When asked whether any further action would be taken against Kin Woon, Kwang Chye said no, but he hoped that Kin Woon would not take part in any further events organised by the PKR.
A former state executive councillor in the previous Barisan Nasional-led Penang state government, Kin Woon is widely respected for his progressive, independent views. He did not defend his Penang state assembly seat of Machang Bubok in the 8 March general election, indicating his desire to step down from active politics.
He is now chairman of the Penang-based Socio-Economic and Environmental Research Institute.
