He said we need to remember politics is very fluid and can change. I wonder whether he realises that basic courtesy to a 40-year party has somewhat changed or rather to be more precise, f**king missing.
Veteran Dr Tan Seng Giaw was NOT even invited (or told) about the event when the DAP sec-gen, the man who is ultra sensitive about his CM's record on greenery in Penang, announces the DAP candidates for Selangor's federal and state seats.
But the DAP's 'natural renewal' process doesn't seem to apply to teflonised assholes like LKS.
Malaysiakini's DAP confirms Kit Siang to defend Iskandar Puteri tells us that the DAP has just confirmed that Lim Kit Siang will defend his parliamentary seat of Iskandar Puteri, which was renamed from Gelang Patah.
Cina mudah lupa
he gets away with forgetting them
whilst TSG gets it for doing a PAC's job properly
Compare or contrast as you wish the following:
Dr Tan Seng Giaw won Kepong in 2013 with a majority of 40,307 in a turnout of 58,585. In the old days we called that staggering majority a bloody huge landslide. He is 75 and thus must be dropped.
Lim Kit Siang won Gelang Patah in 2013 with a majority of 14,762 in a turnout of 95,068. In the old days we called that a comfortable majority. He is 77 and thus must be re-nominated.
Naturally the announcement was made by his son, DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng, in Johor.
"I am pleased to announce, in my capacity as secretary-general, (it was) a unanimous decision by the central executive committee, we have decided to choose a candidate who can lead us to victory.
"I announce for Iskandar Puteri, saudara Lim Kit Siang," Guan Eng said to loud applause from those present tonight.
