GEORGE TOWN, May 10 – Penang Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman Teng Chang Yeow has decided to quit his position from politics, following the huge loss suffered by the coalition in the 14th General Election (GE14).

Teng, who is also the state Gerakan chief, said he will continue as the party chief until July, in a bid to conduct the party elections as part of its constitution. He said that he will take full responsibility for the defeat of the BN, it is not a Malay Tsunami, but a Malaysian Tsunami.

“My political career has come to an end. This is my last election and it will be also my last press conference, I had decided to retire from politics. I will step down once the party (Gerkan) election is over, to be held sometime in July,” he said today.

Pakatan won 37 of the 40 state seats and 11 of the 13 parliamentary seats. BN only managed to win two parliamentary and two state seats in Penang in GE14. — PN
