Hot on the DAP heels again after catching them with their pants down lying about the tunnel consultancy fees. Now, we go back to the question of the validity of the CEC.
The DAP’s illegal CEC knew since April 2013 that they were appointed illegally according to their own party constitution and could therefore not be recognised by the Registrar of Societies. Here is a copy of the letter from the RoS to the Tokong.
In Paragraph 2, the RoS had already stated its reason for believing that the CEC cannot be recognised by the DAP as the manner in which the members were elected to the CEC contravened Clause X Item 1 of the DAP constitution. This is because the CEC included Vincent Wu who, according to the announcement made by the DAP on the 4 January 2013, was not eligible to become a member.
In Paragraph 2.2 it is also mentioned that members complained about not receiving the notice of meeting TEN weeks before the party’s national congress was held as required by Clause VIII Item 9 of the DAP constitution. This resulted in 753 delegates having their right to attend the congress denied by the party’s manahement, and denied their right to vote for the 20 CEC members.
The RoS stated in Paragraph 3.2 that the notice to the branch secretaries should have adhered to Clause VIII Item 6, while notice to the delegates should have adhered to Clause VIII Item 9 of the DAP constitution before the 15 December 2012 national congress. Therefore, in order for the RoS to recognise the legitimacy both Clauses mentioned would have to be fully complied with before a fresh congress and election could be held.
In the last paragraph, the DAP was given a stern reminder by the RoS to comply with all the requirements of the RoS which were based on the DAP’s own party constitution, failing which the RoS could take action to de-register the party as provided for via Section 13 of the Societies Act, 1966. In waiting for compliance, the RoS refused to recognise the legitimacy of the CEC formed after the 15 December 2012 national congress.
And what has the DAP done to comply with its own party constitution as required by the RoS since then?
DAP members should put the blame on only the Tokong and his brutes in the CEC that is not only illegal, but also a farce and a sham.
As anticipated, the Tokong has announced that there is no need for a fresh CEC election despite being directed to hold one by the ROS.
In a bid to save his post and the post of his cronies, the Tokong said that the DAP will meet with the ROS to discuss the issue.
Four years have gone by with the DAP ignoring and even threatening court action against the ROS. This meeting will be just another repeat of his show of arrogance to a government agency.
What will follow this planned meeting would be more roadshows claiming that the DAP CEC is being targetted by UMNO (Malay)-run government agency, more threats of kegal action and defiant rhetorics spewed.
DAP’s current run-in with the authorities is the result of what it sowed back in December 2012. By altering the CEC election results to include Malay-wannabe Christopher Ross Lim in the CEC lineup, DAP members unhappy with the management of the election lodged reports against the DAP prompting the ROS to investigate.
“The complaints were lodged by its own members who felt they had been cheated of their rightful place, so it is no use blaming anybody else for what has happened,” said Tunku Abdul Aziz, who was a former DAP vice-chairman, to reporters. “This issue is essentially a procedural matter whereby the DAP had not followed proper procedures in an election seen as flawed, unfair and unjust by their own members.”
Other former leaders have called upon the DAP to shed its arrogant ways.
Lee Guan Aik, who was unconstitutionally removed by the CEC as Kedah DAP Chairman in 2013, said the DAP should not be arrogant and stubborn.
“Just conduct the re-elections, this time with transparency so that the rights of party members are upheld,” he told reporters.
But the rights of the party members is the last thing that would be of any interest to the Tokong and his henchmen. Arrogance, too, is not new when it comes to the character that the Tokong has. The DAP is essentially a secret society that is run by a group of cronies breaching not just its own party constitution but also State and Federal laws and regulations.
Lee Guan Aik likened the comittee selected by the CEC to replace his Constitutionally-elected committee members to a kongsi gelap (triad organisation).
Tokong and his CEC are adamant NOT to hold fresh elections. In a statement it said that the “DAP firmly assert that the re-election had already been called in accordance with their directive in their letter dated July 30, 2013.”
However, a letter from the ROS to Lee Guan Aik dated 4 December 2013 reaffirming that Guan Aik is still the legal Chairman of the Kedah DAP also contains the following sentence:
“KEPUTUSAN INI DIBUAT DENGAN MENGAMBIL KIRA BAHAWA CEC DAP PADA MASA INI MASIH BELUM DIIKTIRAF OLEH JABATAN…“
This is a clear proof that as at 4 December 2013 the CEC was still an illegal body within the DAP. And what did the CEC do about it? For four years since then – ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!
The 2013 elections DID NOT use the 2012 delegates list that was used in the election that had its results changed by the CEC.
Now it cries foul when being directed yet again to comply with the ROS’s instruction.
It is now up to the DAP members themselves to decide if they still want to be led by someone who has been charged in a court of law on TWO counts of corruption.
Or maybe it is time for the Tokong to call for a snap state election now before the term ends to seek a fresh mandate to lead Pulau Pinang for another term. I am sure he has all the support, as evident in the video below.
There is nothing democratic about the Democratic Action Party (DAP).
Before the results of the party’s election on 15 December 2012 got changed because Microsoft Excel did not give the DAP a good version of the software, the Top 20 results were as follows:
Lim Kit Siang – 1,607 votes
Lim Guan Eng – 1,576 votes
Karpal Singh – 1,411 votes
Anthony Loke – 1,202 votes
Vincent Wu – 1,202 votes
Tan Kok Wai – 1.199 votes
Gobindh Sing Deo – 1,197 votes
Tony Pua – 1,162 votes
Teng Chang Khim – 1,152 votes
Fong Kui Lun – 1,137 votes
Nga Kor Ming – 1,075 votes
Chong Chieng Jen – 1,011 votes
Chong Eng – 1,006 votes
Chow Kon Yeow – 985 votes
M Kulasegaran – 984 votes
Liew Chin Tong – 984 votes
Dr Boo Cheng Hau – 958 votes
Teresa Kok – 925 votes
Teo Nie Cheng – 903 votes
Ngeh Koo Ham – 824 votes
I made note of the results as they came out and quickly blogged about it. Christopher Ross Lim, the Chinaman who goes by the Malay name Zairil Khir Johari could only muster 305 votes despite being Tokong’s closest lieutenant.
19 days later, blaming Microsoft Excel, a whole new result was published. You can see how the spreadsheet format looked different than it did the first round at the DAP’s website. Let us take a look at the results that was endorsed by Emperor Lim Kit Siang and his son the Tokong:
You can see that Christopher Ross Lim, who only managed to get 305 votes, suddenly received 803 votes and made it as an “elected” member of the CEC. Vincent Wu disappeared from the Top 20 list. Guess who was at Number 21 and just one vote down?
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.
This has prompted Emperor Lim Kit Siang to hit out at the ROS citing the directive given as ‘most ridiculous.’ Are the Emperor’s balls shrinking now that he knows his team cannot win without cheating? Is he afraid that the diminishing popularity and increasingly dictatorial son will influence the CEC re-elections? You can read here how the Emperor cheated in the CEC elections to win.
The DAP will be holding a meeting tomorrow (Saturday 8 July 2017) to discuss the ROS directive. It is widely believed that the DAP will be challenging the ROS’s directive in court in order to be able to contest in the next general elections. This is because the Red Bean Army has now begun to play on the issue of the Judiciary after the appointments of the Chief Justice and the President of the Court of Appeal as additional judges of the Federal Court.
The DAP will definitely use ‘questionable impartiality’ of the Judiciary in case the court decides in favour of the ROS later.
But that is all DAP’s game. And this game can end with the resignation of both Emperor Lim Kit Siang and Tokong Lim Guan Eng who has been charged in a court of law for abusing his office to conduct corrupt practices.
Only then can the DAP be saved, as envisioned by the Emperor himself.
Meanwhile, former DAP leaders have frowned on the Emperor’s remarks. Janice Lee, who is a former DAP state assemblyman for Teratai, said that Lim Kit Siang has to justify and explain to the public how this (irregularity) had happened and also answer issues raised by sacked DAP members.
“This means that they don’t have the right to sack me because the CEC in that year was not valid,” she said.
Former DAP life member Shamsher Singh Thind said that as a leader of a so-called democratic party, Kit Siang must ensure that party matters were dealt with transparency and integrity.
“You must ensure people can see that you have done everything by the book, which means you should hold a re-election to sort this matter out once and for all,” he added.
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.
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.
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.
“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.”
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.
“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.”
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.
Stop, think, breathe, act. It is a life-saving rule in times of trouble. Monkeys are not known to be capable of acting this way.
Here, have a read at this first:
Press Statement by YB Zuraida on IGP Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar
2 September 2014
The IGP has gone overboard with his latest arrest of the Penang Voluntary Patrol Unit (PPS). As IGP, he cannot simply declare any society as illegal and should go through proper procedures. Any society unregistered with the ROS must first be declared illegal by the ROS like Hindraf. There must also be proof that the society had tried to register with the ROS and was declined its registration.
The scenario for PPS is different. PPS is part of the Penang State Government body and comprises of the state exco members and state assemblymen.
The IGP should be aware that he is a public servant and that the public’s interest comes first. The police force should not be used as a means to oppress the public.
PPS had always been a voluntary unit to help the community in emergencies and disasters. If the PDRM had been efficient, there would be no need for volunteers to step up and help the police in their work. These volunteers sacrifice their family time just to make their neighbourhood a safer place to live in. Due to the community spirit and selflessness of these PPS members, crime rates in Penang have gone down.
PPS was set up many years ago. There is no reason why the IGP should suddenly and unjustly call it illegal and start to crackdown on these innocent volunteers when all along, these PPS members report to their respective neighbourhood police stations before patrolling the area. Threatening to raid the homes of these volunteers unless they surrender themselves to the police is also absurd and an abuse of power.
The IGP has shown very weak leadership.
In the case of Victor Wong and Nasrul, both who offended the IGP by describing him as Henrich Himmler and Anjing BN respectively, and subsequently being directed by the IGP that both be investigated by the Police Cyber Investigation Response Centre (PCIRC) shows a lack of tolerance for personal opinion. Even after Victor Wong tweeted an apology to the IGP and PDRM, Khalid is bent on taking action against the two under Section 233 of the Communication and Multimedia Act 1998 and Sedition Act 1948.
These heavy-handed clampdown on those in opposition towards the Federal Government is a repeat of Operasi Lalang.
The IGP should be reminded that the PDRM is not his personal army.
YB Zuraida Kamaruddin Ahli Parlimen Ampang Ketua Wanita Keadilan
I instantaneously burst into laughter after reading the statement above. Of course, Zuraida aka Mak Lampir is just one of those Lab Monkeys the PKR fielded in 2008 and never expected to have won the seat. Perhaps she, like Wan Azizah, need to have a good grasp of their surroundings and of current affairs before coming up with such bravado (Wan Azizah still thinks that the Lembaga Letrik Negara or LLN still exists!).
The Royal Malaysian Police only affected the arrest of more than a hundred members of the illegal Persatuan or Pertubuhan Peronda Sukarela (PPS) or whatever you call it by on the 31st August 2014, that Lim Guan Eng claims to have been set up four years ago under the powers vested to the Penang State Government to assist the police in crime-fighting. However, members of the PPS have been seen putting up DAP party flags and banners instead and have been involved in acts that are extrajudicialis. Nothing much is known about the PPS despite having been set up for four years. No paper work, no guidelines, nothing. It is just a band of vigilantes set up in the name of the state government.
The action by the police was taken after a warning was issued for the PPS NOT to gather on the 31st August 2014. This was after the letter below dated 26th August 2014 from the Registrar of Societies was received:
With such information in hand, only idiots like Zuraida and those who support her still think that it is absurd and an abuse of police power for going after the members of the PPS. Lim Guan Eng’s feeble attempt at equating the PPS to the JKKK is also a funny act. The JKKK (Jawatankuasa Keselamatan dan Kemajuan Kampung) is formed under the local government to become a committee to channel issues affecting the socio-welfare, development and security of a kampung. They do not have extra-judicial but absent powers and do not wear any uniform like that of the PPS.
If Lim Guan Eng is so adamant that the police in Penang are short-handed, why not utilise the funds paid tot he PPS members to provide allowances to support the RELA and Rukun Tetangga initiatives, both which are legal organisations empowered to assist the police when needed? Why the need to set up a shady uniformed organisation that has no guideline whatsoever and does all DAP’s biddings?
Anyway, as I mentioned, Zuraida is a lab monkey from the 2008 era. Had she read the letter from the RoS above and understood its content and where it falls on the timeline, she might not have issued such press statement that excites the public’s disaffection against the administration of justice.
As other lab monkeys gone rogue, she needs to be hauled up too!
