Dr Goh quits Gerakan

From Malaysiakini

Barely 24 hours after he voiced his support for opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim in the Permatang Pauh by-election, Gerakan leader Dr Toh Kin Woon has quit his party.The Gerakan central committee member submitted his resignation letter to the party today. Giving no further details, Toh is said to have quit to concentrate on his NGO work. Nevertheless, the timing of his pullout from the Penang-based party has raised many questions.


While most Barisan Nasional politicians were expressing their confidence in winning the Permatang Pauh by-election, Toh was seen visiting the PKR election operation centre yesterday.
During the visit the veteran politician expressed his support for Anwar and feels that the PKR leader’s addition to Parliament can help strengthen democracy.“I am not speaking for my party, I am speaking for myself as an individual - I do support Anwar Ibrahim in this by-election. I am not actually supporting him too much as an individual but more on the movement that he leads.

“I feel if Anwar (is elected to) Parliament, the voices of the opposition will be stronger and the chances of strengthening the democracy and widening the democratic space will be better. For these reason, I support him,” said the academician-turned-politician.The vocal politician had stressed that he was not supporting Anwar-led PKR as a party but the movement and the cause which the PKR politician has been fighting for.
