DAP expels three

DAP has expelled three members with immediate effect for filing nominations as independent candidates in the 12th general election.

In a Press Statement realeased earlier today the party said the three are Kung Chin Chin, Ngu Tieng Hai and Badrul Zaman P.S. Mohd Zakariah.

Kung and Ngu, both from Sarawak, are contesting against DAP candidate Wong Hua Seh for the Sarikei parliamentary seat (P208).

Badrul Zaman from Selangor is contesting against DAP's Ooi Chuan Aun (aka blogger Jeff Ooi) for the Jelutong parliamentary seat (P50) and Koid Teng Guan for the Sungai Pinang state seat (N30).

In the DAP ontesting against official candidates is a violation of party discipline.
