MIRI: Pujut assemblyman Dr Ting Tiong Choon asked Miri mayor Adam Yii to relinquish his post as SUPP party central’s publicity and information secretary.
Dr Ting said that Yii – who is also chairman of SUPP Pujut branch – would not be able to make a fair judgement or decision in his capacity as mayor otherwise.
“I know that the position is an important post in SUPP but I hope Yii will consider my suggestion to relinquish his post so it will not affect his decision and his responsibility as mayor,” said Dr Ting, who is also DAP Piasau branch secretary.
Yii replaced Lawrence Lai as Miri mayor in July this year, becoming the third mayor since Miri was elevated to city status in 2005. -BP
