More non-performing DAP politicians in Selangor scrambling for new seats (Part 2)
Philip Tan Choon Swee, Jenice Lee, Teo Nie Ching, Gobind Singh Deo and Charles Santiago
We wrote about Teratai ADUN Jenice Lee Ying Ha who is non-performing and that she is trying hard to take over the Sekinchan seat in the next GE or alos trying to swap with Teo Nie Ching for the Serdang Parliamentary seat but the latest news is that Teo Nie Ching’s seat is being eyed by another “big gun” recently recruited into the DAP. Jenice Lee will not be able to hold a candle to the “big gun” given her academic qualifications.
So she has now turned her eye to Teluk Datuk DUN seat currently held by Philip Tan Choon Swee – who is also considered non-performing and lacks people skills and diplomacy as a politician.
It wasn’t too long ago that about 100 traders in Jalan Sekolah 1, Jenjarom staged a peaceful protest and demanded an explanation from the Selangor government for demolishing stalls they had been operating for 60 years.
The traders alleged that the state government should have given them a suitable compensation and not just a small shop each measuring less than 100 square feet.
“We had been operating on the land where our stalls were located since the British rule, but now our rights for the last four generations were taken away without any suitable compensation. We were made to understand that the land is for the use of a school, and we agree. What we want is money or suitable land.”
The traders and their family members had gathered specifically to protest against DAP Telok Datok assemblyman Philip Tan Choon Swee for failing to protect their interests and conveniently washed off their hands over the issue even though he promised them that they will get ownership of the land as they had stayed there for more than 30 years but this was a broken promise by YB Philip Tan.
These group of traders have apparently sought help from the Barisan Nasional instead and got help in terms of alternative sites offered to them and so the votes from this group is probably lost for DAP.
Thus Jenice Lee is trying her luck to lobby for a new DUN seat as a swap for her Teratai seat which she knows she cannot win.
It remains to be seen if the DAP leadership will give in to her lobbying efforts.
