KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 19 — In an attempt to put some distance between her and her photo scandal, Bukit Lanjan assemblyman Elizabeth Wong has left the country. Her destination has not been disclosed.
In a press conference on Wednesday, Wong announced her resignation from both her state exco position and her assembly seat. Her party has asked her to take extended leave — and to reconsider her decision when she returns.
Today she informed the media that in order to rest and find peace of mind, she has departed to a location abroad.
Wong is asking the media to show some restraint and to leave her family, friends and herself alone.
She was told that several media organisations were still planning to publish images — with the lewdness increasing — and stories about her.
Wong insists that her principles remain the same, and so are her commitments to PKR. She reaffirmed that she would not discuss her private life.
She took the opportunity to thank again well-wishers — women in particular — and party colleagues for their sustained support.
