“I have decided to contest in Gelang Patah not for myself or DAP, but for the people and the country,” Lim said at a DAP ceramah here Friday night.
“I never challenged Abdul Ghani to come, I only invited (former Prime Minister Tun Dr) Mahathir (Mohamed) as we want to see if it will be my political burial ground or his,” Lim added.
Earlier in the week, Dr Mahathir had described the news of Lim contesting in Gelang Patah as “ridiculous”.
“We have to make sure that Lim does not win,” Dr Mahathir said.
