KUCHING, Nov 24: Democratic Action Party (DAP) chairman Lim Guan Eng has personally issued a public apology for his remarks that may have offended Sarawak Premier Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg and the Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) Sarawak government today in a post on Facebook.

“I apologise for my remarks that may have offended the Sarawak Premier (Abang Johari) and the GPS (Gabungan Parti Sarawak) Sarawak state government.

“The future of the country is more important. Let us make a fresh start to cooperate together to preserve the diversity, inclusiveness and unity or our multi-racial and multi-cultural society as well as protect our Federal Constitution for the benefit of all in Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah and Sarawak,” he said in a statement posted on his official Facebook page.

This came after DAP secretary-general Anthony Loke came out with an apology in a statement earlier today after paying a visit to meet with Abang Johari at his residence in Petra Jaya here this morning in which Deputy Premier Dato Sri Dr Sim Kui Hian was also present.

Following the meeting, Loke said he hoped that it will open a new chapter for a greater understanding and collaboration to pave the way to build a more advanced and progressive Malaysia. — DayakDaily
