Cracks widen in DAP

tehThe cracks in DAP appear to be widening after another leader came out to defend the four elected reps from Malacca who quit the party on Sunday, citing loss of confidence in the leadership.

The Star reported that DAP Tanjung Bungah state assemblyman Teh Yee Cheu said he empathised with his four “comrades” in Malacca.

The four DAP state leaders who quit were Kota Melaka MP Sim Tong Him, and assemblymen Goh Leong San (Duyong), Lim Jack Wong (Bachang) and Chin Choong Seong (Kesidang).

Teh said he understood their dissatisfaction, especially over DAP’s cooperation with Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia.

“I can agree with why they feel fed-up that DAP is working with Pribumi. Some of us feel it, too.

“Pribumi is an Umno offshoot or splinter group. Our DAP leaders spend a lot of time strengthening ties with our brothers in Pakatan but not within our own party,” he told The Star.

Teh added that PPBM leaders were long-standing Umno members, and he was worried that working with the party would eventually lead to the formation of “Barisan Nasional II”.

On Monday, Selangor exco member and state DAP vice-chairman Teng Chang Khim blasted fellow party members for bad-mouthing the four who resigned.

Teng also took to task acting DAP national chairman Tan Kok Wai’s statement describing the four as “malignant tumours” whose departure was good for the party, adding that one should never be abusive to former comrades.

  1. Personally, I have no respects for leaders, for whatever their reasons wish to leave the party, they should do so like a true gentleman….not kicking and shouting like jilted lovers! If these ‘rebels’ felt they have sacrificed greatly for the party, equally, the party have invested dearly on them….without the party, who are they?

  2. Teh Yee Cheu probably already knew his political career with DAP was numbered as he has been seen as a Trojan Horse in Penang DAP. On several occasions he was running down the party leadership and washing dirty linens in public. It is best he resign too.
