DAP ‘intact’ after CEC re-elections
DAP delegates retained almost all the party’s central executive committee (CEC) seats in the just-concluded re-election, an indication that they are putting party unity above all else ahead of the 14th general election (GE14).
Political analysts said with party unity largely intact after two RoS-ordered CEC reelections, what is crucial next for the party is how to win the people’s support and work closely with other Pakatan Harapan component parties in the coming polls to extend the splendid results achieved by the Opposition in the last two general elections, China Press reported yesterday.
Political analyst and Han Chiang College vice-chairman Datuk Cheah See Kian told the daily that overall, DAP has retained its status quo, with Lim Guan Eng remaining at the helm as secretary-general.
The little-changed lineup presents a picture of unity within the party for the sake of the coming general election, said Cheah.
“(But) what is more important is whether the party’s GE14 strategies will touch base with voters, whose sentiments and thinking change frequently.”
He said the voters today may not think in the same way they did in the last two elections.
