Chua, Lim to address key policies in debate, says organiser
KUALA LUMPUR, May 30 — Seven policy areas are expected to be covered during the second debate between MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek and DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng on July 8.
Debate organiser Asian Strategy & Leadership Institute (Asli) told a press conference today that they were education, healthcare, economic prosperity, community service, national unity, public welfare and poverty alleviation.
The two men will spar on the topic ‘DAP & MCA: Whose Policies Benefit the Community Better?’
Asli director and chief executive officer Datuk Dr Michael Yeoh said the session would last about two hours and would be moderated by him.
This time around, the debate, taking place at the Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre in Petaling Jaya, will be in English.
The first debate between the two leaders, held on February 18, was conducted in Mandarin on the topic ‘Is The Two-Party System Becoming a Two-Race System?’.
It was held at Berjaya Times Square Hotel and telecast live on Astro AEC, with a Bahasa Malaysia translation on Astro Awani.
Following that debate, the two leaders had agreed to another verbal face-off, either in Bahasa Malaysia or English. — Bernama
