TTF: The numerous allegations of fraud by DAP members ever since the party conducted its second re-election of the CEC strikes me as weird. On the 16th of November 2017, members of two DAP branches in Penang alleged that ballot boxes were taken into a locked room to prevent delegates from witnessing the vote-counting process.
A recent complaint by several DAP members had it that only Anthony Loke was allowed into the locked room. That is strange, considering that Anthony was also accused of conspiring with Lim Guan Eng to rig both the 2012 CEC election and 2013 re-election processes. Question is, what was the point of appointing Grant Thornton, the so-called ‘independent’ US based audit firm?
Right after the latest re-election concluded, TTF was told of an agreement guan Eng was trying to solicit from the guys at the audit firm. We’re in the midst of verifying the authenticity of that information, though strangely, it seems remarkably consistent with complaints lodged by DAP members and branches, the latest being by Santokh Singh, the deputy chairman of the DAP Asam Kumbang Branch (see news item below).
So is it true what we were told, that Guan Eng is trying solicit an agreement from the guys at Grant Thornton to stylise the re-election report?
PUTRAJAYA: A DAP leader today asked the Registrar of Societies to investigate the re-election of the DAP Central Executive Committee on Nov 12, alleging that it may not have adhered to regulations.
Santokh Singh, deputy chairman of the DAP Asam Kumbang Branch, claimed that the list of CEC candidates had not been updated and contained the names of people who had died and had left the party.
He said the late DAP chairman, Karpal Singh, garnered 43 votes in the re-election while three people who had left the party also received votes, they being John Fernandez (eight votes), Zulkifli Mohd. Noor (43) and Roseli Abdul Ghani (eight).
It was strange that the appointed accounting firm failed to comply with the regulations, so much so that it caused much dissatisfaction to many, he said to reporters after handing over an official complaint to Rahida Mohamed, a representative of RoS, here.
