IPOH: Batu Gajah MP Fong Po Kuan, long the target of many sexist jokes by MPs because of her being single, is finally tying the knot.
The 34-year-old politician will be getting married on Jan 12 next year.
Fong, who is also Wanita DAP organising secretary, filed her papers for her wedding with Johor DAP organising secretary Tan Chen Choon at Wisma Chin Woo here at noon yesterday.
Word of her impending marriage to 37-year-old Tan, who is an insurance agent, got out after she went to collect a set of registration forms on Saturday.
Fong said she had set Jan 12 for the wedding and a private dinner would be held for family and friends.
“There is no specific reason for choosing that date,” she said.
However, a date for the private dinner was not set yet, she added.
Fong said she had known Tan before the 2004 general election and they had been together since then.
Tan was photographed giving Fong a peck on the cheek when DAP Socialist Youth held a peaceful demonstration outside Kuala Lumpur City Hall in 2006 calling the local authority to drop charges against students Ooi Khean Tong and Siow Ai Weng for alleged indecent behaviour.
