DAP to hold emergency CEC meeting following ROS announcement
BY EILEEN NG
PETALING JAYA: DAP will hold an emergency central executive committee (CEC) meeting Wednesday night to discuss its next course of action following the Registrar of Societies' (ROS) announcement that the party will need to conduct fresh polls.
In calling for all members and supporters to remain calm, secretary-general Lim Guan Eng maintained that the party had yet to be officially informed, either verbally or in writing, of the directive to hold fresh elections.
He said when national organising secretary Anthony Loke was informed that the letter supposed to convey the ROS decision was “not ready”.
“As this is a clear act of political vengeance and an illegal abuse of power, the DAP CEC shall consider all options as provided for under the Societies Act, after receiving the written directive from ROS,” said Lim in a statement.
ROS has been investigating complaints of electoral fraud in the DAP CEC election last December.
The issue cropped up when a recalculation revealed that Lim’s political secretary Zairil Khir Johari, who had initially received 305 votes, clinched 803 votes.
On Monday night, Home Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi was quoted as saying that DAP needs to reconvene its internal elections. Lim said he was shocked at Ahmad Zahid’s pronouncement, and that DAP was never informed of the decision. - TheStar
The video clip below is of Lim Kit Siang's drama on last April 18, two days before nominations for the 13th GE. Watch carefully how the DAP de facto leader plays victim and even shed tears to demonise the Registrar of Societies and the Government.
Kit Siang successfully fooled DAP members and the party's predominantly Chinese supporters into believing that the Government was hell bent on preventing DAP from using the ROCKET symbol in the last GE.
Obviously we know now that it was a big load of BULLSHIT from Kit Siang and his secretary general son Lim Guan Eng.
The 'crying before the media at a press conference' stunt was nothing but sheer, shameless propaganda. The Rocket's own report (below), in particular the heading, clearly confirms the hidden agenda.
In the wake of the unprecedented move by the Registrar of Societies (ROS) not to recognize the DAP’s party leadership slate, DAP parliamentary Lim Kit Siang said it is a sad and ominous day for DAP and the nation.
“April 18, 2013 had been the most heart-rending day in my life, the day when the Registrar of Societies dispatched a letter to the DAP to knock out the Rocket symbol from the 13GE, with the Nomination Day less than 48 hours away, completely without any legal basis or plausible ground,” Lim said today in an emotional press conference
Now the RoS, or rather the Home Minister, has stated that DAP must conduct a re-election for its Central Executive Committee.
Will Kit Siang shed his crocodile tears again or will his son take over the lead role from his daddy?
What could be their excuse this time around since the GE is over and even DAP members and supporters know that Kit Siang LIED when he cried the last time. DAP did contest in the last GE with their red rocket logo.
Lets watch this political 'tear-jerker' drama unfold again, later tonight.
p/s Who is this Father Augustus Chen? .... and Guan Eng, could you please explain what you mean by 'political vengeance and an illegal abuse of power'(in The Star report above)? It sounds like MummyFoo's ranting to me.
