PETALING JAYA: Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong has reiterated his stance that he is ready for a debate with Lim Guan Eng on the government’s cabotage policy with a date set by TV3 producers on Nov 2.
The Transport Minister said he was ready for a debate and has never shied away from it.
“Oh dear, what is wrong with Lim Guan Eng?
“If he wants to debate with me, I am okay with it. From back then, I am alright with it, I have never refused and I have never not turned up (for a debate).
“I have also said this previously, choose any date after the Budget 2022 presentation.
“TV3 producers have also contacted my office and suggested Nov 2. I immediately told them ‘Ok!’,” he said in a Facebook post Sunday (Oct 17).
“There is no need for Lim to create stories that a WhatsApp group was set up with him, (Speaker Datuk) Azhar (Azizan Harun) and me. Why would I want to create this WhatsApp group? Don’t I have other work to do?” he said.
Dr Wee urged Lim to calm down, and to stop with such accusations.
He added that he was ready for a debate, noting that they should honour the date suggested by TV3 producers.
“If this date is not suitable, then we can change the date to whenever Lim is free. I am okay with debating even after Nov 2,” he said.
