Complaint lodged against Selangor DAP by ex-members over alleged abuse of power
PUTRAJAYA: Five former DAP members lodged a complaint with the Registrar of Societies (ROS) Thursday against Selangor DAP for allegedly abusing its power during its convention in 2010.
One of them, Serdang Baru DAP branch ex-member Yap Kon Min, claimed he had twice complained to the ROS but action had yet to be taken.
Yap said the first complaint was over a bankrupt member, the vice-chairman of a branch, who was allowed to vote when attending the Selangor DAP Convention on Nov 28, 2010.
He said the second issue was allowing a male member to vote on behalf of the secretary for Women's Affairs of another branch in the party.
"These clearly contravened the DAP constitution, which also shows that Selangor DAP was not respecting the law they themselves drew up.
"We had also forwarded the complaint to Selangor DAP, but until today, there has been no reply. In fact, I was sacked from the party in August last year," he told reporters after handing over the complaint at the ROS office here.
Yap alleged that the voting process at the convention was invalid because it was not done according to the stipulated protocol, rules and party constitution. - Bernama
