Selangor and Johor DAP leaders are in the dark over claims that some among their ranks will quit the party.
Yesterday, former DAP vice-chairperson Tunku Abdul Aziz Tunku Ibrahim had alleged that two senior leaders, from Johor and Selangor respectively, would leave DAP in 48 hours.
When contacted, Selangor DAP chief Tony Pua said he was unaware of anyone who intended to do so.
“Perhaps Tunku Abdul Aziz knows better,” he told Malaysiakini.
Similarly, Johor DAP chief Liew Chin Tong said the public would have to wait and see if Tunku Abdul Aziz’s allegation was valid.
“I have not heard of any such move, we will wait and see,” he said.
Tunku Abdul Aziz’s claims followed the decision by four DAP lawmakers in Malacca to quit the party.
The four are Kota Melaka MP Sim Tong Him and three state assemblypersons Goh Leong San (Duyong), Lim Jak Wong (Bachang) and Chin Choon Seong (Kesidang).
They claimed that the party had deviated from its core objectives and that they were sorry for misleading the public into supporting PAS.
Following this, DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng apologised for trusting the quartet’s loyalty and fielding them for elections.
