The following is Lim's full statement issued on Thursday:
My three-paragraph statement at 7pm last night (Wednesday) that the DAP Central Executive Committee emergency meeting on 9th March had not give approval for a PAS Mentri Besar to head a Perak coalition state government was not made out of disrespect to the Perak Regent whom I have always held in the highest regard and I apologise for any offence caused.
The statement (was) on the party position at the time.
There have been further discussions and developments on the matter in the hours after the statement.
Announcements of the latest position will be made.
