The grand announcement, "Confirmed! Kit Siang will do battle in Gelang Patah" and more Anwar Ibrahim ambiguity,
“It’s true that Gelang Patah was a PKR seat. But we can discuss.The 20,000 strong crowd would have puked instead of cheering had Lim Kit Siang revealed to them what he knows of the Pakatan Rakyat chosen one,
I hold the opinion that it is still a PKR seat. But if Kit Siang comes and assists us, leads us and becomes the Gelang Patah candidate, I give him my full support,” Anwar told a cheering 20,000-strong crowd
"Recently, Anwar Ibrahim has been excelling himself every day by telling more lies and inciting more inter-racial misunderstanding and hatred, as if his political future is in great jeopardy.For the good, of the nation and the people of Malaysia, this is the best chance to get rid of both the hypocrite, Lim Kit Siang, and his liar, Anwar Ibrahim, now and forever.
What is worse, this race-baiting and incitement of inter-racial misunderstanding and hatred is built on lies.
For the good, of the nation and the people of Malaysia, I advise Anwar Ibrahim to stop telling lies and to stop inciting inter-racial hatred and misunderstanding" - Parliamentary Opposition Leader, DAP Secretary-General and MP for Tanjung, Lim Kit Siang, in Penang on Wednesday, 29th August 1990
