MIRI: DAP's Pujut state assemblyman Dr Ting Tiong Choon was ejected from the City Council meeting here on Monday after he arrived wearing a shirt bearing the party logo.

His personal assistant Peter Hii was also ordered to leave.

Miri Mayor Adam Yii made the order to eject the duo after they refused to leave willingly.

Yii said that the council had made a decision to impose a dress code on all attendees, including reporters, back in September.

"The dress code is meant to ensure that everyone comes to the council meeting properly attired.

"All the politicians are bound by this dress code too so we have no choice but to enforce it," he said.

Both DAP politicians refused to leave and the full council meeting was adjourned.
