SITIAWAN: DAP has made Dyana Sofya Mohd Daud the scapegoat for the party's defeat in the Teluk Intan parliamentary by-election, Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong said.
The MCA deputy president chided DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng for saying she lost because she was a young Malay female.
Dr Wee said this was yet another of DAP's many contradictory and hypocritical acts.
"DAP has always claimed to be a multi-ethnic party that gets the support from the young.
"It had fielded young candidates in their 20s and early 30s in the past, and they won," Wee pointed out, adding that he pitied the 27-year-old for being blamed for the loss to Barisan's Datuk Mah Siew Keong, 53, on Saturday.
Dr Wee was opening the Lumut division MCA annual general meeting here on Sunday.
Division chief Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha questioned why DAP fielded Dyana Sofya when they knew she could not win.
The DAP, he added, was once again misleading the people to divert their attention from its poor handling of serious issues like the hudud move by its Pakatan Rakyat ally, PAS.
Mah, who is also Gerakan president, clinched 20,157 votes against Dyana Sofya's 19,919.
The Teluk Intan seat fell vacant after its MP Seah Leong Peng died of cancer on May 1.
