Dr Tan Kee Kwong kow-tim-ed?

FMT - Tian Chua: Wangsa Maju needs a young, bilingual candidate (extracts):

Tian Chua is said to be the putative chief of the PKR's Chinese section. By his words he has effectively kow-tim-ed poor Dr Tan Kee Kwong, the son of the redoubtable (late) Dr Tan Chee Khoon, the man who noted for his "Without Fear or Favour" fame.

As I mentioned in my post last year titled F**k Beer, but STOP dictating our lifestyles according to your religious beliefs, PKR members who support the beer festival like Wangsa Maju MP Dr Tan Kee Kong would be, in best case scenario, ignored by their party, wakakaka. But I leave you to imagine the worst case scenario.

Tian Chua said that PKR's candidate in the Wangsa Maju seat needs to be carefully thought out as it is a Malay-majority area.

“It is a Malay-majority constituency. There are a lot of civil servants, police cooperatives and some areas are heavily influenced by ulamas too."

“So, if there are any changes, the replacement must be a younger leader with a strong bilingual capacity.”

Dr Tan Kee Kwong in the 2013 general election defeated the Umno divisional chief Mohd Shafei Abdullah with a majority of 5,511 votes, in a straight fight which saw a voter turnout of 57,771 (86%).

But the jungle drums are beating out a PKR death note for Dr Tan Kee Kwong, with the gossip that another Tan, Datin Paduka Tan Yee Kew, a former parliamentary secretary to the international trade and industry ministry, may be replacing him.

Tan Yee Yew, by now 65, was from the MCA (in fact then, a senior central committee member ) and had served as a three-term Klang MP from 1995. She was appointed International Trade and Industry Ministry parliamentary secretary after the 2004 general election.

But she was said to be marginalised by the MCA, thus she joined PKR in 2008, and like all who jumped ship to join PKR, was immediately 'beautified', 'canonised' and made a saint, wakakaka.

It seems that PKR has joined DAP in purging hard working old timers. Out with the old lamps and in with the new ones.

But Tian Chua's for a young bilingual candidate
seems not to be fully met by Saint Datin Paduka Tan
 Yee Kew, assuming she is the replacement for Dr Tan Kee Kwong because she would be 65 by now. 

Either she might not be the new PKR candidate for Wangsa Maju OR the PKR jungle drums has been beating out fake news.
