Looks like Jeff Ooi may not be standing in Bukit Bendera afterall.
Malaysiakini in its news article DAP: Penang economy slipping stated:
"Penang has become the laughing stock of the international industrial community under Koh," said Ooi, who intends to contest in a parliamentary seat in Seberang Perai."
“…Ooi, who intends to contest in a parliamentary seat in Seberang Perai.”
Did you get that?
Hmmm, on second thoughts maybe it might be better for Jeff. I believe Chia Kwang Chye, who has had several years to consolidate his position in that federal seat may be too strong for a new comer like Jeff.
It’s important for Jeff to win or his political career will come to an unpleasant period of stagnation if not a grinding halt. And what a depressing, demotivating and disastrous experience that would be for the DAP's prize recruit as well as the DAP.
Maybe it's better to allocate a 'koay karng' spot for a 'koay karng lang' ;-)
