Penang gets its shadow exco


State Barisan Nasional chief Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon has announced his "shadow" executive councillors -- 11 Umno state assemblyman -- who will "monitor the performance" of the new state government.

Koh said each shadow executive councillor would head a committee with representatives from all component parties.

The committee members are former Barisan candidates who were experienced and interested in the various fields under their portfolios.

"They will meet regularly and frequently with related non-governmental organisations and the public to reflect the views and thoughts of all people," he told a press conference after chairing a Barisan Nasional meeting on Sunday.

He said opposition leader Datuk Azhar Ibrahim would head the shadow executive council.
Azhar was recently criticised for participating in an illegal assembly on March 14 to protest statements made by Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, and also for asking the Federal Government to scrap mega-projects in the state.

Dr Koh said Barisan wanted to be a strong coalition that does not only work together during the general election, but functions at all times.

"We want to continue to be an effective coalition that represents all the different races in the state.

"All the component party leaders and members had shown their commitment in continuing to serve and work for the people despite the downfall in the election," he said.

seals: wake up BN, you have lost the last election. You lost the election because you fail to do your job, the job that was trusted to you without much question for 50 years and you failed to uphold it and keep the trust and the job.

How come you the "failure" can say we formed a "shadow executive councillor"? How come a team that failed for past 50 years can do any good now? You are rotten...rotten things are good for nothing and its place is in the rubbish bin.

Wake up!!!!! This thing that you are doing make me and the rakyat feel like a "thief has formed a committee to keep an eye on the police if they are doing a good job". This is a joke for me.

Muka tak malu!!!! People told you many times, you were rude and full of ego and even said "show it at ballot paper". And now even Samy Velu can change camp and call for the HINDRAF5 to be released.
