A Penang DAP backbencher has urged Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng (pictured) to set an example by implementing the two-term limit on the position of chief minister. — File picLim Guan Eng should take the lead in implementing the two-term limit on the position of Penang chief minister, DAP assemblyman Teh Yee Cheu has said.

Teh, who is Tanjung Bungah assemblyman, also called for same limits for the position of Prime Minister and Mentri Besar.

“The two-term limit can prevent misuse of power. I appeal to DAP to take the lead starting from Penang.

“I appeal to DAP sec-gen Lim Guan Eng to take the lead, with his position as a chief minister, to make this his legacy in political reform,” The Star Online quoted Teh as saying at a news conference.

Teh has previously made three unsuccessful attempts to submit his motion to the Penang state assembly to limit the tenure of the Penang chief minister to two consecutive terms.

“Make this your legacy, while you still have the position. Not like Mukhriz.

“Now he can only talk and is not able to act on it,” the DAP state lawmaker said, referring to Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia pro-tem vice president Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir’s proposal to limit the prime minister’s post to two terms if they form government.

Pakatan Harapan has yet to adopt such a practice in the states that it is governing.
