When two non-Malay leaders debate

Yang Amat Berhormat Tuan Lim Guan Eng did very well at the debate tonight. He was very clear from the onset with his sound arguments in respect of the land scandals in Penang. I think he spoke better Bahasa than Anwar.

And as did Anwar during the previous debate, Lim took full advantage of the live national television telecast to drive home the Pakatan Rakyat’s agenda.

His opponent, Koh Tsu Khoon, also spoke very good Bahasa. But he spoke way too slowly and did not manage to put forth his arguments clearly within the stipulated time.

Lim was clearly the winner of the debate.

However, it was good to hear two non-Malay leaders debating issue of interest in Bahasa on live television. It augurs well for Malaysia.
