Lim Guan Eng : Political ploy gone wrong

In an astounding turn of event, it was revealed that the reason Lim Guan Eng went ballistic and became all Hitler-ish over the Registrar of Society (ROS) last week was simply because ROS do not recognise the top leadership of DAP due to the hanky panky done during the DAP party election back in December 2012.

The letter, which was published in Rockybru detailed the extent of serious breach in DAP’s own party regulations. ROS had, in so many polite words, told Lim Guan Eng that DAP has been given a month from the date of the letter to put forward the correct measures otherwise ROS may act accordingly. It seems the hanky panky done during their party election had indeed contravened their own set of laws hence, some of their own members lodged report to ROS.

But what did Lim Guan Eng do?

He barked back at ROS to revoke the letter otherwise DAP may choose to use their partners’ party logo instead.

But with this revelation, the reason why he demanded ROS to revoke the letter is because he has no way out. There is no way he can produce all that was requested by ROS as per para 3.1 and 3.2 below:

Dictatorial tendency often have lackadaisical attitude towards own set of governance

Dictatorial and autocratic leadership of DAP often has lackadaisical attitude towards its own set of governance

In other words, Lim Guan Eng wasn’t even worried about the use of logo.

He and his cadre, especially the supporters of his family are more worried that they will lose via a mutiny should there be a re-election. Many members in DAP had expressed shock and disapproval after Lim Guan Eng and accomplices had bulldozed their way into parachuting their loyal spaniel, Zairil Khir Johari into their Central Executive Committee (CEC), a conclave only meant for the Lim Dynasty and their stooges.

As of today, has any leaders in DAP ever say anything about the logos? It was a non-issue to begin with, and a red herring to be exact.

They are actually squirming like a worm hoping that Pakatan will win the federal government so that this problem will go away if they are in power.

But if they don’t win it, be sure that they will use their own inaction in doing exactly nothing during this one-month grace period given by ROS to find support from the public in battling their self-made problems.

This is the first time in the longest time that we can see a politician, who supposedly be a role model of efficiency, transparency and clean governance (as he always claim to be), uses his own mistakes and stupidity in ensuring efficient and smooth party election, to gain sympathy from the masses.

What was more humiliating, his father, the even bigger dictator cried in front of camera for the world to see, citing injustice done by Barisan Nasional and ROS.

Have they no shame?

It was just a political ploy of squeezing in a henchman, gone wrong. Deal with it at your party level. Don’t drag the whole nation along with it.

  1. Even without reading the letter one already got the impression DAP leadership did wrong. The newspaper reports already gave that image. The members wouldn’t have reported the matter to RoS otherwise. They even demonstrated, didn’t they?

    These are a terrible lot in the DAP top hierarchy. How can they be complicit in a wrong doing. Theirs is not a half past six organization. Or are they?

    Ridiculous that they could not count 1800 votes. Then later we found that some 700 members were not called to the Convention and to vote. Isn’t this a Banana Republic kind of mentality? Yet they talk of wanting to rule the country. We would be going bananas if they ever would.

    Thank God, 46 years in existence they have got nowhere. Except Penang. And God willing, they’d be thrown out of Penang at PRU13. No, they simply cannot be trusted to be in power for longer, and not reach Putrajaya even with similarly not-to-be-trusted others.


  2. They ought to be thankful these DAP fellows. The RoS even allowed them to use the Rocket symbol for the elections. When in fact, the RoS could even suspend their operations. Or hurry the investigations and de-register them before GE13.

    But these are the ungrateful kind, aren’t they. Since their very existence. Given citizenship right also still wanted to try and question the Special Position of the Malays (extended to the Bumiputeras of Sabah and Sarawak in 1963) – the quid pro quo, the consideration, for the Malays agreeing to the citizenship right for them.

    And they twist, spin and slant the very considerate nature of the RoS in not suspending or de-registering them. And even letting them use their own logos.

    But good to see that PAS also exploited the situation. When DAP said they were willing to contest GE13 under PAS logo, the PAS Syura Council top people like Taib and Dr Haron Din were quick to say that it shows DAP’s willingness to accept Hudud. Hadi too said that, if I’m not mistaken.

    All told, it’s not only a political ploy gone wrong. It’s smacking them right in their faces. It may lead to disaster to them by the number of fence sitters seeing they are not worth being given the votes for that sort of wrong thinking, wrong acting and wrong reacting to RoS gestures of reasonableness.


    • Right from the day RoS asked DAP reps to meet him over the members’ complaints, Lim Kit Siang already said in Gelang Patah DAP will use PAS or PKR logo if DAP was “de-registered”.

      Agree “the logo .. was a non-issue to begin with, and a red herring to be exact.” Then they started to accuse the RoS all sorts. Aiyyo, what kind of people.

      PS: Difficulty in getting into your blog past few days, Sir. And in submitting this comment.


      • Thank you Rasmusen.

        I think there are difficulties in getting into political blogs generally these days. Maybe because of strain in the bandwidth.

        Thank you.


  3. These DAP people exploit every little thing they can find. Blame the gomen. So we do the same also lor.

    Yesterday Anwar said he got blamed even if Mancester United loses a game. Because Defence Minister said got evidence 3 Opposition party members involved in Lahad Datu incursion, submitting papers to AG for action. Now dia orang tau. Kita pun boleh hantam dia orang.

    RoS should not be lenient on DAP. Should whack them at every opportunity. They tell lies, we tell the facts. Don’t wurry how it affect voters – the hard core ones will never change their minds. The fence sitters may like the gomen being firm and no nonsense on these fellas. They were being too much since Tun Abdullah Badawi’s time and people are now fed up with them.


  4. Zairil Khir Johari is not only their loyal spaniel. He was parachuted into their Central Executive Committee because they desperately wanted to show they have a so-called Malay (he is biologically Chinese but arranged to carry a Malay name by ex-Minister Khir Johari who married his mother when the boy was 8 years old) even at the highest party governing body.

    But they botched up the procedures. At first nominated, then recounted the votes and had him declared “elected” into the CEC, blaming the computer, etc. What the ….


  5. My concern against DAP is that they have not changed one bit since the race riots of 13 May 1969.

    Not so much that they have the opposite stand on many political issues, but the manner they put them out. You talk about so-called Malaysian Malaysia equality without acknowledging the Special Position of the Malays and the Bumiputeras of Sabah and Sarawak, you sound questioning that Special Position, the consideration for which was the citizenship right for the non-Malays. You criticize the NEP without specifying it’s the implementation weakneses you are after, you appear to be anti-Malay and anti-Bumiputera. Questioning the Special Position invites counter-questioning of your citizenship right and it’s not good for anybody.

    Now Lim Guan Eng is barking at RoS. Without acknowledging the fault you people made. Yet it’s clear to all and sundry that the vote counting was fishy, the 700 delegates were not brought in to vote. Clearly against the party rules and procedures. Goodness, it’s your own members who complained to RoS.

    Kamon lah, Guan Eng, be responsible, man. You made a mistake, admit it, then appeal for leniency from the RoS. Don’t be arrogant and gangster like. After all, the RoS has been considerate, haven’t they? You were allowed to use your rocket logo and you are not even thankful for that. Learn the word gratitude and practise it sometimes.
