It was an interesting day the DAP Socialist Youth and DAP Wanita committee elections today. In summary, it was a failed game of proxies.
DAPSY delegates voted in ADUN Bahau YB Teo Kok Seong. Teo, who is a favoured personality by the outgoing DAPSY Head YB Anthony Loke, defeated ADUN Canning YB Wong Kah Woh. Wong is a proxy of the ‘Dictator Duo’ cousins Ngeh Koo Ham and Nga Kor Ming.
It would strengthen the ‘Dictator Duo’s control over DAP Perak if their lap dog is the DAPSY Head. However, the popularity of the two cosusins have been clearly sent by the DAPSY delegates today.
Another interesting fact is that DAP Secretary General and Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng aka Tokong’s Political Secretary YB Ng Wei Aik was defeated in his bid as the Secretary to DAPSY. Johor DAPSY Secretary Tan Hong Pin was elected by the DAPSY delegates.
In a typical socialist organization, the secretary is a very strategic and powerful position. For Lim to not control this DAPSY’s post is a demonstration that the new generation DAP leaders are not into his politics.
Wanita DAP delegates elected Bukit Mertajam MP YB Chong Eng versus Lim’s own favoured woman Selangor State Exco, ADUN for Kinrara and MP for Seputeh Teresa Kok. Kok’s defeat, who is also National Organising Secretary and Selangor Wanita Head, is a big slap on Lim the Tokong’s face.
Chong have had a rift with Penang State Government Exco Lydia Ong, for the past two years. Even though Chong lobbied for Ong for the Exco post when DAP took over the Penang State Government from Gerakan four years ago, the soured relationship the past two years has been a setback for women issues in Penang.
Chong is definitely an Old Guard, who is closely aligned to DAP Emperor Lim Kit Siang.
The first election for Wanita DAP in 40 years, only 30.8% turnout of delegates. This is the true reflection that the party is not democratic and its members dont take their own brand of democracy seriously, even though they try to picture themselves as ‘democratic’.
Earlier in his speech, DAPSY Head Loke is demonstrating the DAP desperation in his speech:
1. Rakyat must decide to decide to choose a corrupt government which consistently play the racist game with ’13 May’ threats or vote for a better future
2. BN is panicking as the rakyat is now aware that PR is strong and backed by the rakyat
3. BN is using dirty tactics to maintain power
4. UMNO will continue to slander DAP as ‘Anti Malay’
5. DAP’s stance on Hudud is not in accordance with the Federal Constitution and not suitable for a multi-ethnic society
6. DAPSY would be more pro-active in the psychology war
7. DAPSY would continue to fight BN in all fields, including cybersphere
8. The voice of UMNO, MCA and MIC Youth is no longer relevant to younger Malaysians
Out of the 20 DAPSY leaders elected today, only two are Non Chinese; Arul Kumar Jambunathan of Negeri Sembilan and Rajiv Risyakaran of Selangor. No Malays or any Bumiputra from Sarawak or Sabah elected in any posts. So much for a multi-ethnic party. The ratio of leaders voted into DAPSY dan DAP Wanita Central Commiitee is a demonstration of their Chinese Chauvinist agenda is very much in place.
The decision of the DAPSY delegates very much affirmed the contention that DAP is really an anti Malay political party, something the DAPSY Head said they are not.
This evening’s results proven that Mini Emperor Lim Guan Eng’s attempt to grip onto the Chinese Chauvinist party failed. Even delegates of DAPSY and Wanita DAP are not swayed into the apparent dynasty control-freak mentality.
