What Is The DAP Afraid Of?

“Bla bla bla bla bla…”

In a somewhat anticipated move, Emperor Lim Kit Siang has come to the defence of his breadwinner, Tokong Lim Guan Eng.

In an article published by left-leaning Malaysiakini Kit Siang, in a reaction to MACC’s Datuk Dzulkifli Ahmad’s ultimatum to Guan Eng, said that Dzulkifli should not fall victim to hubris and power, quoting Lord Acton’s axiom “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”

Quoting the US Department of Justice (DoJ) suit Kit Siang said that from page 339 to page 348 of the DoJ document that it traced the RM2.6 billion that made its way to Najib Razak’s account from 1MDB.

Funny enough audits of 1MDB’s accounts found no money missing, the DoJ has never named Najib Razak as anyone that is involved in the suit, and that PAC members from the Opposition, including Kit Siang’s mule Pony Tua, signed off the PAC 1MDB report saying that Najib Razak is NOT accountable for 1MDB’s dealings.

Pony Tua may have said something to reporters after signing the report but he should have resigned from the PAC and refused to sign should he have had any doubt or disagreement with the findings of the PAC.

He did not.

So why is Kit Siang contradicting his own people in the PAC that includes Pony Tua?

As for the axiom “power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely“, Kit Siang should first and foremost look into the mirror and tell that to himself.

I am very sure he remembers what he did to people like Goh Hock Guan, Lee Lam Thye, Dr Soarian, Chan Teck Chan, Seow Hun Khin, Chin Nyuk Soo and Goh Lin Eam and tens others.  These are people Kit Siang ousted from DAP when he felt threatened by their presence. Does Kit Siang dare to tell Kerk Chee Yee how his late father Kerk Kim Hock’s 2004 General Elections efforts was sabotaged by him, which practically ended Kim Hock’s political career?

What about the gag order issued on DAP vice chairman M Kulasegaran after he gave the party’s Perak secretary Nga Kor Ming a dressing down over his alleged abuse of power?  Did M Kula not dress down Nga Kor Ming because of the latter’s wife’s company, Ethan and Elton Sdn Bhd, was awarded the tender to tailor lounge suits for Ipoh city councillors when Pakatan Rakyat was in power in Perak?

The award was given despite the company having charged the highest price for the suits. Rivals also pointed to the fact that the company was registered with the Companies Commission Malaysia barely 42 days after Pakatan formed the state government.

And now that his son has been charged on two accounts of corrupt practices, why is he not giving the MACC the same support he accorded when the MACC was investigating Najib Razak?  Ask Guan Eng to also look into the mirror and tell himself that power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely!

When the MACC arrested and charged BN’s exco members in Johor and recently one of its powerful veterans, did BN cry like the DAP does?  When Khir Toyo was charged in court and subsequently jailed for the same offence your son has committed, did BN cry like you?

So, remember what you said to the rakyat in 2015, Kit Siang? “This situation of police harassing MACC must stop!”

So now stop harrassing the MACC and let them do their work. What is it that you are so afraid of?

Dictators Asphyxiate Party

On 12 November 1933, even with the Nazi party as the sole political party contesting in a German parliamentary election seeking to endorse Hitler’s plan to remilitarise the Rhineland,  43,007,577 ballots were cast, of which 39,655,288, or 92.2 per cent, endorsed the list and 3,352,289, or 7.8 per cent were defective.  Hitler reacted badly and a directive by the Ministry of Propaganda to no longer keep track of spoiled ballots was issued.

Joseph Stalin used elections as part of his Great Purge of potential communist competitors.  More than 70 percent of factory committee members were replaced, 66 percent of the 94,000 factory committee chairmen, and 92 percent of the 30,723 members of the regional committee plenums.

The DAP conducted a party election that was rigged, blamed Microsoft Excel for the election woes, then blames everyone else but themselves over the party’s registration which is now in limbo as the Registrar of Societies is soon to decide on the fate of the party. But this is not new.  Even the Melaka DAP fiasco was blamed on UMNO.

DAP’s Emperor Lim Kit Siang offers to reisgn in order to save the DAP

In an attempt to hoodwink party members as well as the public, Emperor Lim Kit Siang offered to resign to “save the party from deregistration.”  It is just a ploy to divert attention from his and his son’s struggle to maintain their hold on the DAP.

A servant of the Lims who was planted in Johor, Teo Nie Cheng, even questioned the need for the ROS to meet up with Ahmad Zahid Hamidi before deciding on the fate of the DAP.  She knows very well that Zahid is not just a Deputy Prime Minister but also the Home Affairs Minister thus making the ROS reportable to him.  But in order to paint a negative picture and show that the ROS is an effete agency in case things go bad for the DAP, she purposely links the ROS to Zahid who can later be blamed for the DAP’s own arrogance.

Teo Nia Seng trying to lonk DAP’s arrogance to the BN

The DAP fiaso began with the December 2012 DAP party elections, where the numbers show that the Emperor only received 62.4 percent of total votes, while his son the Tokong received 1,576 votes out of 2,576, or only 61.2 percent of total votes.  In short, 1,000 delegates did not vote for Tokong.

Before the 2012 party elections the DAP had 31 Central Executive Committee members of which three were Indians, two Sikhs and two Malays.  During this election, all SEVEN Malay candidates lost.  I wrote SEVEN because although the media quoted EIGHT, Zairil Khir Johari IS NOT Malay.  His name is not Zairil bin Khir Johari, but Zairil Khir Johari bin Ablululah.

Zairil, or Christopher Ross Lim as his name was before Khir Johari married his mother in 1996 when he was seven or eight, only managed to secure 305 votes.

One of the Malay candidates, Zulkifli Mohd Noor from Pulau Pinang, who had tried for the past 25 years to get into the CEC,  received 216 votes.  He was clearly peeved:

When we say ‘Malaysian Malaysia,’ we must represent all religions, all races…balance. The message I conveyed did not reached the grassroots. They are still choosing leaders based on race,” he told Bernama.

He said that the election was also not based on ability and experience of the candidates in fighting for the party.

There is no change. The results is a setback for Malay candidates. Perhaps the top leaders who contested want to take care of their own interests, not the party’s interests.”

However, 19 days after the party elections the DAP announced that there had been a technical error in the vote tabulation and declared defeated candidate Zairil Khir Johari Abdullah as a duly elected member of the CEC.

This prompted two DAP life-members, David Dass Aseerpatham and Mahendran Krishnan, vice-chairman and secretary of the party’s Ladang Paroi branch respectively, to lodge a report against the DAP at the ROS.

The investigation into the legality of the DAP CEC was as a result of reports by DAP members, not BN

“This is a clear case of election manipulation, and it is also against the democratic process and the party’s slogan of competency, accountability and transparency (CAT),” David Dass said.

Calls for a fresh CEC election made by members have gone totally ignored.  Members in Pulau Pinang and Seremban protested.  The ROS promptly launched an investigation into the allegations made and asked the DAP for its annual report to be submitted by 14 February 2013.

In April 2013, a month before the 13th General Elections, the DAP threatened the ROS and asked the latter to withdraw from investigating the DAP.  The ROS had asked DAP to present proof of its claim of mistake during vote counting at the Central Executive Committee (CEC) elections.

The Director-General,  Datuk Abdul Rahman Othman said this was to determine whether it was due to a computer glitch or cheating.

We are still investigating and one of the major issue is the votes received by candidates in the party elections,” Rahman said in a statement.

Furthermore,  the ROS stated in May 2013 that it had found 753 DAP members who were eligible to attend its national congress on 15 December 2012, did not receive notice.

DAP members who did not receive the notice were denied the right to vote and choose the leaders they wanted at the congress,” he said in a statement which also said the ROS would continue investigations on other issues raised by complainants, and go through all documents submitted before arriving at a decision on the validity of the congress based on the Societies Act 1966.

There were other illegal things that the DAP had done since then including removing the Kedah State DAP Committee headed by Lee Guan Aik in May 2013 and replacing them with members of the Lim’s choice including Zairil Ross Lim as the State’s committee interim Chairman.

My committee and I were removed because certain dynastic leaders did not want us to continue to lead Kedah DAP,” alleged Lee. “I was removed without any valid reason neither was I called to face any inquiry. I was removed in an undemocratic way.”

Lee Guan Aik was removed from his elected post undemocratically

This prompted Lee to also lodge a report with the ROS in July 2013 which in turn issued Lee an official letter in December that year duly recognising him as the Kedah DAP chairman.

Letter from the ROS confirming that Lee is still the DAP Chairman for Kedah

Those leaders in the centre are not bothered to resolve the leadership crisis in Kedah. They are running the Kedah DAP like a kongsi gelap (secret society) … there’s so much secrecy,” Lee said. “The DAP publicly portrays itself as a democratic party but in truth it is not.

This certainly does sound like how Joseph Stalin ran the Soviet Union’s Communist Party.  Pulau Pinang’s Joseph Lim Guan Eng has also been running Pulau Pinang like a dictator. Just ask Ang Kean Seang and Teh Yee Cheu.

It was not the first time that the DAP under the Emperor Lim Kit Siang had removed people not aligned with his dynastic rule.  In the 1990s the Emperor removed the likes of Goh Hock Guan who was the Selangor State DAP Chairman.  Others who were expelled included Dr Soarian, Chan Teck Chan, Seow Hun Khin, Chin Nyuk Soo and Goh Lin Eam.

Goh Hock Guan, in his letter to Cheng Man Hin, said,

“I don’t want to have any relationship with Lim Kit Siang. We’re totally adverse in terms of viewpoints and personality. As long as Kit Siang is holding the position as the Secretary-General of the DAP, he would definitely and finally destroy the future of DAP.”

Lee Lam Thye was made the Deputy Secretary-General but without power nor authority. Under Kit Siang’s orders, Lam Thye was not allowed to give views nor comments of any dissatisfaction. But he had an impeccable record of service to his constituency, and this threatened Kit Siang’s position.

On 29 September 1990, Lee Lam Thye dropped a bombshell announcing his departure from the DAP.  He said,

“A few leaders had hurt me from behind…I can’t stand anymore.”

After Lam Thye’s resignation, Lim Kit Siang issued a gag-order on the DAP ordering all party members to ‘shut-up’, avoiding giving any statement, view or statement through the media.

This is how the DAP under the Lims and their cohorts is being run now – as a society it is a dynastic triad; given the power to govern it would be just like Hitler’s Nazi party since it now shows how it equals to Joseph Stalin.

DAP’s only hope is now in Tan Seng Giaw, virtually the only politician who opposes constructively and professionally.  Hopefully sane party members will see this.

But as long as the computer used to count party ballots is operated by someone appointed by the Lims, DAP will continue to be a party which blood is sucked dry by the Lims and their henchmen, and will die of asphyxiation.

Selamat Hari Raya, PM Ke-7

Will the real 7th Prime Minister please stand up?

When I first set my eyes upon the photo above late last month, I thought of individual monologues based on the body language shown by the individuals in the photo.

Lim Kit Siang: “I am only holding this up because I will need the support of the Malays in PKR.”

Mahathir: “Anwar as the 7th PM? No way, Jose!”

Azmin: “I don’t really want to put this up but I need the party to vote me for the top post.”

Wan Azizah: “Better him than me. I am clueless most of the time!”

The above photo is the perfect depiction of how the Opposition front is in a disarray.  Each of the parties in the Pakatan Harapan want to become the Big Brother. PKR believes that it has what it needs to lead the coalition; Pribumi believes that it should have the lead role as it has a former Prime Minister as well as a former Deputy Prime Minister (and throw in a former Menteri Besar who did virtually nothing for the state he governed); while the DAP knows that it is the Kingmaker in the coalition, and no matter who becomes the Pakatan’s PM, they call the shots.

However, if those above were actually sincerely hoping for Anwar Ibrahim to become the next Prime Minister, they would be utterly disappointed as Anwar had recently announced the removal of himself as the coalition’s PM candidate.  The announcement leaves the race to become the Pakatan’s Prime Minister candidate to just two persons – Azmin Ali, PKR’s current Deputy President and Menteri Besar of Selangor, and U-Turn Mahathir, a former Prime Minister who stepped down but now misses the power that comes with the seat.


Wan Azizah does not come close to being the person either Azmin or Mahathir are.

But what of Lim Kit Siang?

Lim Kit Siang is the de facto father of the Opposition, no matter by what name you call it.  Although he declared that he is not interested in the post of the Prime Minister, everyone knows that he does not have to be in the seat to actually rule the country.  Nizar Jamaluddin, the JKR engineer who once went on to become Perak’s Menteri Besar, contested on PAS’s ticket but became the MB because his mother is related to Perak DAP henchmen Ngeh Koo Ham and Nga Kor Ming.  Through Nizar, the DAP managed to get things done its way, including giving leasehold land to Chinese New Villages inhabitants for 999 years!

Although Kit Siang is just a member of the DAP’s Central Executive Committee and nothing more, he is the hidden hand behind the CEC and especially his son, Lim Guan Eng (Tokong) who is the party’s Secretary-General.

Lim Kit Siang is known to use whatever means at his disposal to make sure he stays in power.

Those born in the mid-1970s and onwards may not have heard of the name Goh Hock Guan. He was the DAP Secretary-General who was involved in a power tussle with Kit Siang.

Hock Guan, who was also the Selangor DAP Chairman, wanted to field Lau Dak Kee in the Ulu Selangor by-election but Kit Siang favoured (now Tan Sri) Lee Lam Thye.

The repeat of this was in Johor during the 13th General Elections where Kit Siang and Tokong pushed aside then-state DAP Chairman Boo Cheng Hau and fielded their minions in order to hold on to power.

Kit Siang’s next move was to expel Hock Guan from the party. Others who were expelled included Dr Soarian, Chan Teck Chan, Seow Hun Khin, Chin Nyuk Soo and Goh Lin Eam.

Goh Hock Guan, in his letter to Cheng Man Hin, said,

“I don’t want to have any relationship with Lim Kit Siang. We’re totally adverse in terms of viewpoints and personality. As long as Kit Siang is holding the position as the Secretary-General of the DAP, he would definitely and finally destroy the future of DAP.”

Lee Lam Thye was made the Deputy Secretary-General but without power nor authority. Under Kit Siang’s orders, Lam Thye was not allowed to give views nor comments of any dissatisfaction. But he had an impeccable record of service to his constituency, and this threatened Kit Siang’s position.

On 29 September 1990, Lee Lam Thye dropped a bombshell announcing his departure from the DAP.  He said,

“A few leaders had hurt me from behind…I can’t stand anymore.”

After Lam Thye’s resignation, Lim Kit Siang issued a gag-order on the DAP ordering all party members to ‘shut-up’, avoiding giving any statement, view or statement through the media.

Lee Lam Thye certainly has a better life outside Kit Siang’s DAP

Azmin Ali may be the star of PKR but he does not have the support of the leadership.  It is no secret that he has no love whatsoever for Wan Azizah and her camp.

While Wan Azizah is no match for Azmin, who was Anwar’s Principal Private Secretary, Rafizi and Tian Chua who are in the former’s camp has been actively and openly doing things to undermine Azmin’s position.

Dubbed as the UMNO-man in PKR, I doubt that Azmin would make it to the Prime Minister’s seat as long as there still are those who are opposed to him.

And I also doubt his ability to rein them in onto his side.

This leaves us with the Gollum who still yearns for his precious seat.


At 92, many think that he is too old to be returning to the Premiership. He doesn’t think so.  Even with a protem Pribumi President, he thinks that only he is fit to lead the nation he dumped in 2003.


Which is why despite concerns he has twice hinted that the next Prime Minister for Malaysia is him.

We all know what kind of a PM he was, and we all know putting him and Kit Siang side-by-side, they are actually one of a kind. Both are fighting for the survival of their dynasty while current PKR’s reason for struggle has not changed since 1998 – Anwar Ibrahim’s freedom and nothing else beyond that.

Wan Azizah has already announced after Anwar’s bombshell announcement that the Pakatan should concentrate on winning the next general elections before thinking of who is to become the PM.

Wan Azizah’s absurd comment

That is as absurd as saying let us get in the car and then we decide where to go on a holiday.  Everybody wants to know who will become the PM if they let you win.  Having said that, you do not need to have a brain if you are Wan Azizah

Although time is running out for him, Mahathir has no problem working with arch enemy Kit Siang as long as he gets to become PM again.

Maybe all he wants is to die in office. That way he stays No.1 till kingdom come.  Who doesn’t want a send-off fit for a Pharaoh? So, in the meantime, wishing the 7th PM Selamat Hari Raya, whoever you may be.
