Chow Kon Yew
Chow [Kon Yew] said the party’s decision not to field eight-term MP Tan Seng Giaw to defend the Kepong federal seat was part of a “natural renewal” process in politics.
He said although Tan had served DAP well, he failed to get elected to a state or central-level post within the party.
“There are candidates who have been dropped after serving one term. In politics, things are fluid and can change”
At least Chow Kon Yew has been far more courteous and less arrogant than someone so easily slighted over a small issue of Penang's disappointing green record.
Tan Seng Giaw blamed for not 'sexing up' PAC's 1 MDB investigation to Pakatan's requirement
TP teflonised a la King David in remaining mum in his role as a PAC member should be made to explain
Chow did the polite thing to attribute the dropping of veteran Tan Seng Giaw as the euphemistic 'natural renewal' process in politics, and also to praise Tan for serving the DAP well (though this might not make the Hell-Hounds happy). He'll make a more humble CM.
Though I have to say, with the Hallelujah Mob in Selangor, I am not surprised Tan Seng Giaw failed to get elected to a state or central-level post within the party.
But I agree there should be a 'natural renewal' process which I strongly believe should start off with a nyanyok raja-belakang-pusing 77-year old.
When one starts to forget one should go retire.
