GEORGE TOWN: Despite being dropped by DAP, incumbent Tanjong MP Ng Wei Aik said he would continue to stand in the front line and defend the party.

“I do not know why I was dropped. Maybe this is the best arrangement for the party.

“But I still believe in our party’s ideology,” he told a press conference at Chew Jetty in Weld Quay to thank his voters yesterday.

Ng, 41, who is the Penang DAP publicity secretary, said he would support all the new candidates.

He said he wished to apologise if he had offended anyone in the past.

“They may not agree with my style and approach but my ultimate aim was to help the people to solve their issues,” he said.

As for two-term Jelutong MP Jeff Ooi, he said he harboured no hard feelings over the party’s decision to drop him.

“Since I am staying in Jelutong, I will go back to photography and capture the dying trades there,” said Ooi, 63.

“I also plan to create a mobile app to evaluate the performance of the city council.”

However, he said he was still open to holding a position in the party.

Ng will be replaced by Penang DAP chief Chow Kon Yeow in Tanjong while Ooi’s place in Jelutong is taken by Seri Delima assemblyman R.S.N. Rayer.
