DAP POLLS ON SEPT 29

LEDANG: DAP's central executive committee (CEC) elections will be held at the Penang DAP building in Penang on Sept 29.

DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng confirmed that the same candidates' list for the party elections in December would be used again.

"Using the same list of candidates for the fresh party elections is provided for under the party's constitution," he said at the opening of the DAP community centre in Jalan Kemajuan, Tangkak, on Sunday.

Lim said the party would convey its decision to the Registrar of Societies (RoS) soon.

Lim, who is also Penang chief minister, accompanied by national, state and local party leaders, said the party would adhere to RoS' instructions.

In Putrajaya, RoS has urged DAP to submit its official letter on the use of the same candidates' list for its CEC re-elections.

RoS director-general Datuk Abdul Rahman Othman said he had yet to receive any formal correspondence on the matter from DAP.

"I had on July 30 instructed the party to hold new CEC elections, but until today, I have not received any official letter from them."

RoS had instructed the party to hold new CEC elections, saying it was not satisfied with its explanation over an alleged technical glitch at the party's elections last year.
