IPOH: The membership of nine DAP members from Perak has been terminated with immediate effect, says party disciplinary committee chairman Chong Chieng Jen (pic).

He said six of them had tendered their resignations, while three others failed to reply to show-cause letters that were issued to them.



“Thus the committee decided today (Feb 17) to terminate their membership.

“Members are reminded that any act of showing support to an elected representative who has betrayed the party shall constitute an act of indiscipline against the party, ” he said in a statement on Wednesday.

Chong said the committee had received complaints of disciplinary breaches by the nine, who were named as Chong Lai Yeen, Fam Choy, Chan San Wei, Thai Lin Fong, Wong Kow, Yeoh Kok Thye, Chung Kooi Choy, Leong Wai Wah and Yong Teck Yin.

On Jan 18, Chong announced the sacking of DAP’s Malim Nawar assemblyman Leong Cheok Keng.

Citing media reports on Leong applying to join MCA, Chong had said that dual membership was deemed treacherous to the party.
