Neither MCA nor Umno "own" Wangsa Maju, if you ask me. YB Wee Choo Keong is the incumbent and serving MP for Wangsa Maju. In 2008 he defeated the BN candidate from MCA by a 150-vote majority. It might have been one of the slimmest margins but if one considers that Wee 1. was not a PKR member even though he contested on their ticket; 2. the DAP hated his guts; and 3. he was not PAS-friendly even though he was born and raised in Kelantan, then Wee's victory in Wangsa Maju 5 years ago had defied the odds.
He's been serving the constituency well and the people of Wangsa Maju like him and know they can depend on their MP. In Parliament, Wee has been vocal and is a critic of both BN and Pakatan. He even helped lead a cyber campaign that got Najib Razak to reverse a controversial deal brokered by Khazanah which would have let Air Asia take over Malaysia Airlines, the national carrier.
Yesterday, where the angels from BN dared not thread, Wee questioned both Lim Guan Eng and Ambiga S over what needed to be asked. Read the paper cutting below and tell me if the BN or MCA aspiring candidate for Wangsa Maju has the gumption to take on those two?Saturday, April 13, 2013 | Last updated at 15:40 PM
Lim told to explain DAP polls fiascoKEEPING SILENT: He has failed to act fairly to delegates who were not notified of the CEC election, says former MP
KUALA LUMPUR: FORMER Wangsa Maju independent member of parliament Wee Choo Keong has asked DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng to step forward and explain the party’s election fiasco.
Wee said Lim had failed to take the necessary steps to act fairly give justice to all the DAP delegates who were not notified of the central executive committee (CEC) elections, especially the 735 Indian delegates who had been demanding for an explanation.
“I have come to understand that he is scared that the Registrar of Societies (RoS) will interview the 735 DAP delegates who were not in formed about the CEC elections on Dec 15.
“We want to know why he is still reluctant to present the name list of names of the 753 who did not turn up and the 1,823 delegates who were present,” said Wee, who is also DAP’s former DAP national publicity secretary.
He also questioned Bersih co-chairman Datuk S. Ambiga’s on her silence onregarding the issue and for not defending the plight of the over 700 Indian delegates that were passed over by Lim.
“Is his act clean or dirty in Ambiga’s eyes?” he questioned, adding that Ambiga should issue a public statement if she fully supported his actions.
“If RoS ordered that Lim conduct a re-election and ask all 735 Indian delegates to be present and vote, would Ambiga protest?”
Wee said he was confident that Ambiga would protest a re-election as it would affect Lim’s position and give other Indian candidates an opportunity to win.
Meanwhile, In Tampin, a former DAP leader has also asked why Ambiga did not take an interest in to investigate DAP’s CEC’s election fiasco.
Tan Tuan Tat, who is the former Selangor DAP publicity secretary, was perplexed that Ambiga, who claimed to champions clean and free elections, had never questioned the party which often was proud of its competency, account ability and transparency (CAT) practice.
“Ambiga is always challenging the Election Commission to be fair and just.
“So, why didn’t she ask DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng about the party’s 753 delegates who were denied of a chance to vote at the party’s recent CEC election?”
Tan was speaking at a dinner meeting with DAP Ladang Regent branch mem bers at Balai Raya Ladang Regent in Gemencheh, here, on Wednesday.
He felt that if Ambiga was really serious about competency, account ability and transparency, then she should have challenged the DAP to reveal more about the its CEC’s election fiasco.
He said the public should not blamed others if the Registrar of Societies (RoS) decided to de-register the party or make it called for a fresh election, thus not allowing the party to use its logo infor the general election.
“Do not blame the other political parties or their rivals. They should instead look at point to the DAP leaders who decided to change the election results after the CEC results were out and claimed that there was a technical glitch by the computer,” he added.”
A total of 2,576 DAP delegates should have been present at the election to select 20 of the party’s CEC members, yet 753 of them did not vote.
