DAP adopts one candidate-one seat policy (http://www.malaysia-today.net/mtcolumns/newscommentaries/53362-dap-adopts-one-candidate-one-seat-policy)

17th Dec 2012


(The Star) - DAP has adopted its Central Executive Committee's (CEC) resolution on the one candidate, one seat policy.

DAP chairman Karpal Singh (http://archives.thestar.com.my/search/?q=Karpal%20Singh) said one person should contest only one seat, but there could be exceptions on case-by-case basis based on the party's strategy.

“The resolution has been adopted,” said Karpal, who had wanted such a policy to provide opportunity to candidates of calibre to contest.

Other resolutions from branches that were tabled and adopted include calls on party leaders to stop openly attacking the party to the point of jeopardising its image.

Perak New Village branch chairman Lim Soo Chong (http://archives.thestar.com.my/search/?q=Lim%20Soo%20Chong) said attacks motivated by personal interest should stop because the party did not belong to any individual.

Another resolution adopted called on leaders to attend party functions and not to demand five-star accommodations.

Six other resolutions could not be tabled because representatives from the branches that proposed them were not present.

On a proposal by Sekinchan assemblyman Ng Suee Lim to impose a direct election system in the party, Karpal said the party constitution needed to be amended for it to be adopted.

“It requires a major amendment to the constitution. If the members feel strongly about direct election, then it should be considered.”

Although Karpal had said the delegates were free to bring up any issue, none of them brought up contentious issues involving Pakatan Rakyat.

Issues such as the gender ruling in salons in Kelantan, “khalwat” summonses issued to non-Muslims in Kelantan and the demolition of a religious altar in a private home in Selangor were not touched.
