Liew: GE15 no longer a straight fight between Government and Opposition

BATU PAHAT: The 15th General Election will be a competition between Barisan Nasional, Perikatan Nasional and Pakatan Harapan, says DAP's Johor party chairman Liew Chin Tong.

"It will no longer be a contest between the government and the opposition as it was previously," he said.

"There were only about 800 members attending the party's national convention back in 2008 and today there are about 23,283 members in Johor alone. We are no longer a small opposition party that only knows how to oppose," added Liew.

Liew also said that DAP needs to be united to manage the party at a large scale.

He added that DAP was a "government in waiting" as it has won a previous election and proved that it can administer a country.

He said this in his speech during the 20th Johor DAP convention and state polls here in Batu Pahat on Sunday (May 2).

Also present at the opening ceremony of the convention here are DAP deputy chairman Gobind Singh Deo and party national organising secretary Anthony Loke,

Johor Pakatan Harapan chairman and state Parti Amanah Negara chief Aminolhuda Hassan and state PKR chairman Syed Ibrahim Syed Noh.

The state DAP polls here will see 40 candidates vying for 15 seats in the state committee.

A total of about 905 delegates, which is about 61% out of the

1,487 eligible voting members from 210 branches turned up for the polls here.
