DAP National Congress, State Ordinary Conventions, postponed for 12 months.

The DAP CEC is compelled to consider the decisions by both UMNO dan MCA to postpone party elections next year as a clear signal that snap elections will likely be called by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak next year. To put the party into genenal election mode, all resources and efforts should be directed towards prepare for the most critical 13th General Elections.

The DAP Central Executive Committee (CEC) at its meeting last night decided to invoke Clause VIII of the Party Constitution to postpone Party Congress and State Ordinary Conventions for 12 month.

Clause VIII of the DAP Party Constitution stipulates:“…Notwithstanding all other provisions contained in this Constitution, the Central Executive Committee Shall have the powers to postpone the Party Congress and Party Conference, State Ordinary Convention and State Annual Convention for a period not exceeding 12 months should their convening fall on a date within two years of the date Parliament shall, in accordance with Article 55(3) of the Federal Constitution, stand dissolved.”

This means that the next Party Congress where party elections will be held and due by August 2011 is postponed till August 2012. This decision also affect the holding of state party elections for Negeri Sembilan and Sarawak which are scheduled to be held by end of 2011.

The DAP CEC, taking into consideration of the likelihood of general election being called in the very near future, unanimously agreed that resources and effort should be focused in preparing the Party to face one of the most important general elections in the history of Malaysia.

Celebration of Human Rights Day 2010

Human Rights Day 2010 on 10 December recognizes the work of human rights defenders worldwide who act to end discrimination of race, gender, religion or any other basis inconsistent with basic principles or values of humanity, freedom and justice.

Welcome to Penang, the state of free speech with the first Speaker’s Square in the country where in the immortal words of Voltaire, “We may disagree with you but we will defend to the death your right to disagree with me”. It gives me great honour to be invited to celebrate this day with all you heroes and heroines of those who were deprived, dispossessed and denied of their basic human rights.

Leading Penang’s Future By Embracing Moderation, Rule Of Law And A Government Trusted By The People.

The venue of the Penang State Ordinary Convention, the seat of power of the Penang state government, reminds all DAP leaders and members how far we have come from being an opposition party since 1966. However there is no time to lose if Penang DAP is to maintain the hard-earned gains of democracy, freedom and dignity.

Two years from now, the next DAP Penang State Ordinary Convention will be either celebrating in here again with PR winning a second term; or meet in some other place both defeated and miserable as a one-term wonder.

China Has Replaced Singapore, USA and Japan As Malaysia’s Largest Trading Partner In 2009.

The topic of discussion today is ‘The Rise of Asia and China’s Role’. I can conceive of two fruitful approaches in which we can discuss this very general topic in greater depth and detail.

The first approach is to discuss China’s role in ensuring continued economic growth for itself as well as for the region as a whole and perhaps touch briefly on how Asia’s economic strength can be leveraged into other areas of influence in the larger geo-political environment.

The second approach is to broach this topic from the perspective of the role of other countries in Asia vis-à-vis their China and how these countries can be a positive influence in aligning the interest of China with the region so that Asia can continue its rapid climb, economically and politically. One may look at both approaches at two sides of the same coin.
