Penang DAP appoints its rejected writer on Islam to party exco
Oh and by the way, if Lim Guan Eng desires to be Chief Minister into his third term, he should at least have the guts to stand for election against Chow Kon Yeow in the Penang DAP central committee.
Yesterday, Penang DAP delegates refused to endorse Syerleena Abdul Rashid in their party state election.
Syerleena did not obtain enough votes to put her among the fifteen ELECTED exco members.
• Top finisher: Chow Kon Yeow (654 votes)
• In fourth place: Guan Eng’s sister, Lim Hui Ying (454 votes)
• Last to make the cut: Steven Sim in 15th place (270 votes)

However in the time-honoured tradition of F-A-I-L-E-D Malay candidates, Syerleena was appointed to sit in the committee by virtue of DAP’s ethnic quota. (This is what happens in a party led by a “failed accountant”.)
The DAP proudly claims to be “colour blind” and “beyond race” but it nonetheless duly made way for Syerleena due to her skin colour.
History repeats itself
Indeed, “there were no Malays elected into the CEC” … again.

A high profile Malay mannequin is the DAP’s former senator Ariffin Omar who was appointed one of the party’s five vice chairmen.

• Malay quota appointee: Ariffin Omar (348 votes)
“No point educating racist parties”
So true. In this matter of Chinese x3, the DAP cannot ubah.
DAP shouts from the rooftops about “meritocracy” and rails against the BN’s so-called “race-based” policies. Yet the DAP are the last to practise what they preach.
One is reminded of Tony Pua who finished 8th in the recent Selangor DAP election but was elected the “minority” chairman anyway. He is an exemplar of the DAP’s – wakakakaka – “meritocratic” system at work.
Syerleena is being co-opted into the Penang DAP committee only because of the DAP’s quota for Malays.
The Dapsters scream that Umno, MCA and MIC are “raciiiiiiissst” but look at what they’ve themselves done. BLOODY HYPOCRITES!
Syerleena is also made the Penang DAP assistant publicity secretary. She’s been a prolific writer – see below her TMI profile – and spokesman for the DAP’s brand of Islam.
Isma however questions her “skeletal understanding” and believes it is “advisable for Syerleena to assign herself to an indepth study about Islam through its primary sources”.
