DAP man gets show cause letter

GEORGE TOWN: Penang Backbenchers Club chairman Koay Teng Hai has received a show cause letter from the DAP disciplinary committee for missing the last state assembly sitting.

Koay earned the wrath of Penang Chief Minister and DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng for putting the state government’s proposed Anti-Hoping Bill in jeopardy.

Koay said he received the letter on Saturday and had two weeks to submit a reply to the committee.

“The letter did not come as a surprise, but it’s difficult for me to make any other statement on the matter at this time,” Koay said.

Koay had reportedly skipped the last state assembly sitting in November to attend a United States embassy trip entitled `US Election: A Project for Young Political Leaders` that ran from Oct 29 to Nov 9.
