KUALA LUMPUR: Umno information chief Tan Sri Annuar Musa has agreed to a proposed debate with DAP advisor Lim Kit Siang.

Debate organiser, Pertubuhan Pembela Nasib Melayu Malaysia, had sent an informal invitation to Annuar via WhatsApp last week to which he replied, "Anytime."

An invitation had also been sent to Lim's party but there has yet to be a response.

The organiser secretariat chairman Dr Ammar Hassan said he expected a response from Lim's team latest by tomorrow.

"If both parties agree, we will hand them our official invitations at the Parliament this week and the debate could be held at the end of April," he said at a press conference today.

The debate, titled "Lim Kit Siang a Racist Politician, Dictator and Anti-Islam" has been proposed to be held at the Putra World Trade Centre with an expected crowd of 1,000 people.
