How would you rate the performance of the Penang state government so far?
Good? Too early to tell? Could be better? Disappointing?
Here’s one assessment by Khoo Kay Peng.
Do you agree with his analysis?
What do you think of its approach to the economy? the environment – built and natural? accountability? the lower income group including urban pioneers and workers?

It is still too early to tell. They lack experience but they are trying. Give them more time. However, I hope they will look into the flood problems in Penang urgently. I also want to see them come up with programmes to teach the poor people, especially the Malays and Indians on how to earn a decent living like free classes in hair dressing, sewing, crafts, cooking, fish rearing, etc. We cannot be just giving out money to the poor. Teach them how to fish. Show the other states that DAP or PKR led states do not marginalise any community especially the Malays and Indians.
