PETALING JAYA: DAP will hold its national party convention in Segamat next in a move to win over the Johor voters in the next general election, says state DAP chairman Liew Chin Tong.
He added that this was to emphasise how crucial the semi-urban seats were in determining the outcome of the next election.
“Not only Northern Johor, but Southern Perak, Sabah and Sarawak will together determine the future of Malaysia.
“Most of these areas consist of semi-urban or rural parliamentary constituencies, in which Pakatan Rakyat has to work hard to win the hearts and minds of the voters,” he said in a statement yesterday,
Liew, who is Kluang MP, said the Johor DAP would also be focusing its attention on these seats ahead of the 14th general election in order to help Pakatan win Johor.
“The party should work hard to garner more support from different groups, especially in marginal seats,” he added.
On another matter, Liew said that the state DAP also reaffirmed its support for Skudai assemblyman Dr Boo Cheng Hau to continue as Opposition Leader in the state assembly.
The announcement was made during the state DAP committee meeting in Kahang yesterday.
During the recent state party polls, Liew, who was previously Bukit Bendera MP, was chosen to replace Dr Boo as state party chairman.
Liew also said that both he and Dr Boo were among seven leaders who would be representing DAP in Johor’s Pakatan Rakyat committee.
The others are S. Ramakrishnan (deputy chairman), Gan Peck Chen (secretary) Chew Peck Choo (DAP Johor Wanita Chief),Tan Hong Pin (DAP Socialist Youth Johor Chief) and Mahdzir Ibrahim (member).
