Karpal: Conquer Putrajaya before we get too old

DAP chairperson Karpal Singh said he hopes the party's ageing leaders would have the chance to be in the federal government.

In his opening speech at the party's Special Congress today, he said that the only way to do so was for Pakatan Rakyat to win the next general election.

"We must, because the leaders are getting very old. We must be given an opportunity before we retire, and when I say 'we', I include Lim Kit Siang...

"We have young people. I see very few old people now. What we have, we are perhaps the last of the Mohicans.

"The young must take over from us, that is a natural process. From what I see today, these young people, you are the ones who are going inherit the next government in this country," he told the party's delegates.

Both Karpal and Lim are in their early-70's.
