GEORGE TOWN: Permatang Pasir assemblyma­n Datuk Salleh Man, the sole PAS lawmaker in Penang, denies he has withdrawn his support for the Penang government. He denied the claims made in a Oct 31 report in an English language daily with the title Penang PAS rep 'won't support state govt'. Salleh said he was never interviewe­d by any of the newspaper’s journalist­s and urged the publicatio­n to retract the report immediatel­y. He said his victory in the last general election was based on the spirit of Pakatan Rakyat (now defunct). “It is in that spirit that I will continue to support the Pakatan Harapan Penang government. I will also support Lim Guan Eng as chief minister and will defend him and the state government,” he said at a press conference yesterday. Lim welcomed the announceme­nt and said Salleh was still a member of the state government.
