Penang state executive councillor Datuk Dr Toh Kin Woon did not break ranks with the Barisan Nasional when he said he "disagreed with the country's leaders" on Sunday's illegal rally.
Gerakan acting president Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon said the BN coalition comprised different parties with people of differing views.Koh, who is also Penang chief minister, said there was bound to be a diversity of opinions among and within each party."Otherwise, we are not a coalition.
I don't think Toh has broken ranks with the BN. He was just expressing his personal opinion.
"We are a democratic country and Gerakan is a democratic party," he said. (I hope he will stand by this statement in the future and I trust he would.)
I agree with Dr Toh too.
