KUCHING: DAP has sacked a nominated Sabah assemblyman for defecting to support Perikatan Nasional in its bid to topple the Sabah state government.

The party's disciplinary committee chairman Chong Chieng Jen (pic) said Ronnie Loh's membership was terminated with immediate effect.

"He is also hereby removed from all his positions in the party," he said in a statement on Thursday (July 30).

Chong advised party members to disassociate themselves from Loh, adding that the disciplinary committee would take "the sternest action" against defectors.

Loh, a Sabah DAP nominated assemblyman, was among 12 assemblymen seen with Tan Sri Musa Aman on Wednesday night (July 29) when the former chief minister claimed to have the numbers to form the new state government.
