Jeff Ooi quits Penang CM's Office?
Update: March 25, 4.10am - Jeff Ooi: I am staying on till the job is done
See Star Online.
The talk in Penang tonight is that Jeff Ooi (pic) has or plans to quit as the Chief of Staff of the Penang Chief Minister Office, The Star Online reported. At least one local Chinese paper in Penang has gone to town with the story. The Star managed to contact Jeff Ooi who refused to confirm nor deny the story, which has been circulating for a while. Jeff is said to have a written understanding with Lim Guan Eng that he would only hold the post for a while. It was a Penang victory on March 8 which the DAP including Jeff did not expect. When the party won, Jeff was asked to help put things in order. But it is also well known that Jeff did not have an easy time at Komtar. Some could not adjust to his professionalism in running the office, preferring the slower pace. But we will find out more when Jeff blogs about it.
