Kota Melaka MP, three assemblymen quit DAP

MALACCA: Four DAP state leaders, including Kota Melaka MP Sim Tong Him (pic), have quit the party.  

The others are assemblymen Goh Leong San (Duyong), Lim Jack Wong (Bachang) and Chin Choong Seong (Kesidang).  

Sim, who spoke at a press conference here Sunday, said they had lost confidence in the party and were disappointed with the current leadership.  

He said DAP had deviated from the party’s goals and objectives.

Sim said they would continue to serve the people as independents.  

Sim and Goh also apologised to the people for campaigning for PAS in the last general election.

The duo said they were sorry for encouraging non-Muslims to support the Islamist party.

Sim and Goh were suspended for a year from Feb 7 last year by DAP’s disciplinary committee for smearing the party’s name through a lawsuit against a fellow party member.
