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.
