Low turnout at CEC re-election shows trouble in DAP, says Umno leader

PUTRAJAYA: The drop in number of delegates attending the DAP Special Congress for the re-election of its central executive committee (CEC) members yesterday showed there is a crisis in the party.

Umno supreme council member Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid said he believed the party is currently facing a crisis of trust.

"More than 2,000 delegates were eligible to vote, but only half of them turned up for the congress.

"This means that they (DAP members) do not trust each other," he said, after attending the Rukun Negara recital programme at SK Putrajaya Presint 8 (2), today.

Yesterday, it was reported that 1,356 of 2,514 DAP delegates cast their votes in the CEC re-election held in Shah Alam.

Independent auditor Grant Thornton, a United States-based firm, announced that the attendance was 53.94 per cent.

DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang drew the most number of votes with 1,199 votes, followed by Puchong member of parliament (MP) Gobind Singh Deo with 1,198 votes.

Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng came in third place with 1,180 votes.

Other DAP candidates who made it to the list of 20 CEC members are Chong Chieng Jen, Teresa Kok, Tan Kok Wai, Tony Pua, Nga Kor Ming, Fong Kui Lun, Chow Kon Yeow, M. Kulasegaran, Chong Eng, Teng Chang Khim, Ngeh Koo Ham, and Zairil Khir Johari.

Batu Gajah MP V. Sivakumar and former Selangor exco member Ronnie Liu emerged as newcomers to the list, replacing the late party chairman Karpal Singh and Skudai state assemblyman Dr Boo Cheng Hau who did not make the cut.

Held for the third time, the polls was to choose members for the partyĆ¢€™s 2012 CEC.

In 2013, the Registrar of Societies ordered DAP to hold re-election for its CEC members following complaints from party members over alleged mishandling of its election on D ec 15, 2012.

These included claims that 753 delegates were not given a chance to cast their votes.

Following the directive, DAP had, on Sept 29, 2013, held a re-election of CEC for the 2012 term, using the same list of delegates.
