Debate dare: Does Kit Siang have a problem?

PUCHONG: Pekan MP Datuk Seri Najib Razak took Iskandar Puteri MP Lim Kit Siang to task for claiming that he chickened out of a debate.

“Debate topic proposed by him. He was the one who asked whether I was ready for a debate. He was the one who agreed to the debate topic,” said the former premier on Twitter.

“He was the one who pulled out of the debate. He was the one who wrote a long piece on why he pulled out.”

“And today Kit Siang said I dare not debate him. Does he have a problem?”

Najib was referring to a recent debate dare that failed to take off even though the former premier was up for it.

Earlier today, the DAP stalwart launched an offensive by questioning the action of the former premier in sacking former Attorney General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail and replacing him with Tan Sri Apandi Ali in July 2015.

In the same year, then Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin was sacked from the Cabinet and the special task force formed to investigate 1MDB related matters were dissolved.

Lim referred to the period as Week of Long Knives.

Week of Long Knives is a variation to Night of Long Knives where German Fuhrer Adolf Hitler conducted political extrajudicial executions in a bid to consolidate his power in 1934.
