Attendance of 54% of 2012 DAP delegates at DAP Special Congress yesterday a most commendable turnout

Contrary to the hype of Barisan Nasional-owned and controlled media about “DISMAL TURNOUT IN DAP POLLS”, the attendance of 54% of the 2012 DAP delegates at the DAP Special Congress to elect for the third time the 2012 DAP Central Executive Committee as directed by the Registrar of Societies is a most commendable turnout.

One thought that struck me at the DAP Special Congress yesterday was what would have been the turnout of the Barisan Nasional component parties, in particular UMNO, MCA, Gerakan and MIC, if they had to assemble their party delegates five years ago for a re-enactment of a special party conference.

I have grave doubts that anyone of them would be able to muster a turnout of over 50 per cent of their delegates five years ago, and I won’t be surprised if some of them can’t even get 30% attendance turnout rate.

I was moved by the dedication, stamina and commitment of the DAP’s 2012 delegates to re-assemble from all over the country yesterday to vote for the third time the 2012 DAP Central Executive Committee, although they know this was most unfair and unjust.

    Amidst all the “issues” (created by UMNO/BN) faced by PH parties, including DAP, there is a risk PH is missing things they should be doing.

    For example, the release of Anwar. It’s clear election is going to be held before Anwar release in April. PH leaders are missing the opportunity to make it a bigger issue because it’s fundamental to Najib’s strategy. The people, especially rural Malays want to hear from Anwar, about 1MDB, about Hadi’s PAS betrayal, about Mahathir, about Felda – about their lives and future.They are being denied full debate that concerns their lives and future.

    Frankly, a top PH leader should already be loud speaking this deprivation of national debate.
