The DAP disciplinary committee has terminated the membership of Malim Nawar assemblyman Leong Cheok Keng after media reports claiming he had joined MCA.

Leong was reported last week as saying that he would not respond to DAP’s letter, insisting that the committee should seek explanations from party leaders who have “deviated from party principles”.

“Some leaders claim they wanted to create a new political landscape with Umno or other parties. How come they don’t have to explain?,” he was quoted as saying by a news portal.

His statement more or less confirms Perak DAP assemblyman Nga Kor Ming’s recent claim that the DAP was willing to work with UMNO

However, Leong stopped short of confirming or denying reports linking him with MCA.


PETALING JAYA: Free Malaysia Today reported that the DAP disciplinary committee has terminated the membership of Malim Nawar assemblyman Leong Cheok Keng after media reports claiming he had joined MCA.

According to FMT, the committee issued a show-cause letter to Leong on the 6th of Jan but said he did not respond and chose to go through the media to state that he would not reply to their query.




“Leong Cheok Keng has left the disciplinary committee with no other alternative but to terminate his party membership with immediate effect,” said the committee’s chairman, Chong Chieng Jen, in a statement today.

Leong was reported last week as saying that he would not respond to DAP’s letter, insisting that the committee should seek explanations from party leaders who have “deviated from party principles”.

“Some leaders claim they wanted to create a new political landscape with Umno or other parties. How come they don’t have to explain?,” he was quoted as saying by a news portal.

“This is unfair to me. Therefore, I have decided not to provide an explanation.”

However, Leong stopped short of confirming or denying reports linking him with MCA.

On the 6th of December 2020, Nga was quoted as saying in view of the current political crisis, the state requires a multiracial, clean, strong and stable government.

He said there was a need for a government based on the principles of integrity and good governance.

“I am prepared to work with anyone who shares this vision, ” he said.

Nga said this when asked to comment on Umno president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s statement that Umno is willing to work with other parties from Pakatan Harapan, including DAP.

Meanwhile, Chong said that Leong’s decision to reply to their show-cause letter through the media amounted to “defiance and arrogance” against the party’s internal disciplinary mechanism, Chong said it also lent credence to reports about Leong’s MCA application.

Chong stressed that DAP does not allow party members to apply or hold the membership of another political party. Their membership will be terminated as such dual-membership is deemed a “treachery” to the party.

A number of Chinese dailies had previously reported that Leong and several other DAP assemblymen and MPs were leaving DAP.

Leong, a two-term Malim Nawar assemblyman, previously slammed Nga over his willingness to work with Umno during the Perak political turmoil last month.
