PORT DICKSON (May 24): The decision of DAP advisor, Lim Kit Siang to withdraw from debating with former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak is a wise move, said Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Anwar said it is feared the debate between the DAP veteran and Najib may be turned into a racial conflict.

“As far as I know Kit Siang is not somebody who is not bold...but I thought many friends advised that it is not suitable now as it could create tension.

“It is a good decision,” he told reporters when met during a House to House Contribution programme here today.   

Yesterday, Lim announced his withdrawal from the debate with Najib on worries the programme may be turned into a conflict between the Malays and Chinese.
