GEORGE TOWN (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Invitations are being sent out for the swearing-in ceremony of the Penang Chief Minister at 10am on Monday (May 14).
But several assemblymen said they are unsure if DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng will be sworn-in for a third term or if it would be Penang DAP chairman Chow Kon Yeow.
"I heard about this but I have not received the invite yet. I don't know whether Lim would continue a chief minister as I have not heard anything," said a DAP assemblyman.
Another assemblyman said Lim, being the highest-ranking leader of the DAP, would surely take up a senior Cabinet post.
Another DAP leader said Lim would remain as chief minister for a while to tie up loose ends before taking up the federal post.
"There are several mega projects in Penang that have been planned and will be implemented soon. I am sure he wants to settle things before taking up a minister's post," he said.
After the swearing-in of the chief minister, another ceremony would be held a few days later to announce the state executive councillors line -up.
