Former DAP members cry foul over Guan Eng re-election

Published: Modified:

Some disgruntled ex-DAP members have claimed that democracy in the party was dead as secretary-general Lim Guan Eng was still allowed to contest in the central executive committee (CEC) re-election amid corruption charges.

They questioned why no action was taken by the party's disciplinary committee against Lim on the matter until now, besides various criticisms on the Tanjung Bungah landslide.

"Lim Guan Eng should not contest in the CEC race due to the charges he is facing, as the move will tarnish the party's image.

"He has a court case to answer and he should pull out from contesting in the CEC race," former Seputeh DAP branch member Tony Tan told reporters today, after gathering with some disgruntled DAP members outside the Shah Alam Ideal Convention Centre where the party re-election took place.

The DAP's CEC re-election was held today after getting the green light from the Registrar of Societies, where 1,356 delegates elected 20 CEC members.

Meanwhile, another disgruntled member, R Vellasamy, ex-chairperson of Pantai Sepang Putra DAP, questioned why the party leadership took action against grassroots leaders like him but kept mum in Lim̢۪s case.
