The DAP’s Lim Guan Eng today denied having a secret affair with a former aide, saying he was not like political rival Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek, who had publicly admitted to extramarital relations in 2008 after video recordings of his trysts were publicly leaked.
The Penang chief minister also challenged today an MCA Malacca state lawmaker to relinquish his immunity and repeat openly the allegations against him and his wife, which Lim denounced as the ruling Barisan Nasional’s smear campaign against him ahead of national polls due within a year.
“I have no close or secret relationship with my former staff. My wife has never assaulted me or anyone in her life.
“Let MCA repeat their allegations publicly so that my wife and [I] can prove in court that, ‘Lim Guan Eng is not Chua Soi Lek!’, he said in a statement.
