GE13: Jenice Lee turns down Kit Siang's offer to plead on her behalf
In a statement Wednesday, she said she appreciated the offer from DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang to plead on her behalf if she withdrew her candidacy, but doing so would amount to betraying her supporters.
"I hope he can give me 30 minutes to meet for one last time, and if he still insists I withdraw, I hope to know the reasons for his insistence," she said.
Lee said Lim did not understand the cause of events in Teratai.
Earlier in the day, Lim said he was prepared to plead on behalf Lee if she withdrew from contesting in the May 5 polls.
