Lim Sian See Agrees to Rafizi Ramli's Podcast Requirements, Urges Economy Minister to Set Date

Lim Sian See, a political observer, has agreed to appear on the 'Yang Bakar Menteri' podcast hosted by Economy Minister Rafizi Ramli, but has urged Rafizi to set a date after the February challenge.

Lim stated that he has no problems meeting the requirements set by Rafizi, such as providing his full name, MyKad number, and address. "I have no problems meeting the requirements set by Rafizi, such as providing my full name, signature, MyKad number, and address," Lim said.

However, Lim questioned the need for such requirements, stating that it is just a podcast to exchange views, not a boxing match or fencing duel. "What kind of action did Rafizi call to be taken against me? If I defamed the minister, he can sue me or lodge a police report," Lim emphasized. He urged Rafizi to 'relax' and not be 'too dramatic' about it.

Rafizi had previously said he agreed to invite Lim for the podcast but the latter must fulfill certain requirements. Rafizi also called for action to be taken against Lim, saying that he had been using the name to criticize everyone without any action being taken against him.

In response, Rafizi advised Lim to be patient and wait for an invitation to appear on the podcast. The Economy Minister stated that he is currently occupied with organizing several major government programs related to the national economy, and will only extend an invitation to Lim after these programs are completed, which he expects to be in the next two to three weeks.

Why this matters: The exchange between Lim Sian See and Rafizi Ramli highlights the ongoing political discourse and debates in Malaysia. The potential podcast appearance could provide a platform for both figures to discuss and clarify their views on various issues of public interest.

Lim dismissed the need for dramatics and urged Rafizi to set a date for the podcast, as the challenge had been issued in February and it was already almost the end of April. "Rafizi had made the challenge in February, and it is now approaching the end of April," Lim pointed out. He also expressed puzzlement over Rafizi's claim that he craves attention, stating that it was Rafizi who invited him to the podcast in the first place.
