DAP embracing Protuns and other Malay party hoppers
Pemakan dedak DAP
There’s a report today of a press conference by Penang DAP chairman Chow Kon Yeow to announce Malay recruits to his party.
Among the new Malay members joining DAP is former air force pilot Major Zaidi Ahmad who previously kicked up a ruckus over the EC’s indelible ink. He was appointed cmlimguaneng’s information officer in mid-March this year (pix below).
Zaidi jumped from PAS into the frying ‘PAN’ and now into the fire, according to Malaysiakini — see ‘Ex-major Zaidi crosses over from Amanah to DAP‘.
An ex-armed forces man, Zaidi is tinggi dan segak … quite unlike the DAP’s Si Sudu Senduk.
I’ll let you all know when the Protun (Umno reject) makes it official with his new paymasters.
For an ambitious Malay individual, DAP is obviously the ‘go to’ party. The guy would probably succeed in wrangling the RM20,000 he’s incessantly harping on.
DAP is nonetheless not so welcoming of Indians who cannot offer the party the kind of leverage and access that a connected Malay is able to offer.
Below is a recent comment by ex-DAP Johor deputy chairman Norman Fernandez reminding Khaled Nordin’s boys to keep the Umno Johor door securely bolted against Si Kitol.
Incidentally, Norman mentioned something about “when the wallet takes a hit, time to … looking for another benefactor with cash” — see below.
Norman’s comment is of course unrelated to the current batch of new Malay DAP members as he penned it a few days earlier (before today’s news item).
#Just sayin’ about pemakan dedak … the opposition is flush with moolah these days.
