From his blog : Po Kuan returns!
From his Facebook status message : Lim Kit Siang is glad that Po Kuan has return to the frontline.
If it is true she is back then this is definitely a good news for DAP and Po Kuan’s supporters in Batu Gajah 🙂
And, guess what? Our Deputy Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has openly endorse the capability of Fong Po Kuan and calls her a capable parliamentarian. I am not lying. Read it here and here. I quote :
From Bernama :
He said the refusal of a capable member of parliament such as Fong Po Kuan to contest in the election showed that there was a serious internal conflict within the party.
“What transpires shows that within the DAP, especially in Perak, there is a serious internal conflict to the extent that a capable member of parliament is frustrated and is not willing to contest,” he said when asked to comment on Fong’s announcement yesterday that she would not defend her seat in the coming general election. “
From NST :
Taking a shot at the DAP, which has repeatedly accused Barisan Nasional component parties of lacking transparency and democracy, Najib said: “This (Fong’s decision) proves that the DAP has failed miserably in implementing the principles of democracy, meritocracy and transparency.
“Now, an extremely capable MP (Fong) from the party is forced to take drastic action to show her disapproval.”
So do I need elaborate more? People in Batu Gajah, listen to Najib and vote wisely 😛
