Segamat DAP led by its chief Pang Hok Liong has shocked political pundits by turning up in full force to extend help to Chua in his electoral battle in the town, reports chuajuimeng123.
SEGAMAT (10 April 2013): Johor PKR chairman Chua Jui Meng today took P.140 Segamat by electoral firestorm and the DAP also dashed Barisan Nasional (BN)’s hopes of driving a wedge between Pakatan Rakyat (PR)’s PKR and DAP.
Segamat DAP led by its chief Pang Hok Liong shocked political pundits by turning up in full force to extend help to Chua who arrived here at 10am to launch his maiden electoral battle here.
It was a great disappointment to the BN which had hoped for a “killer” clash between Chua and lawyer Pang who was DAP’s candidate for Segamat in 2004 and 2008.
Pang turned up for a joint press conference with Chua at the opening of a mini PKR election operations centre in Kampung Abdullah.
If BN doubted Pang’s sincerity to close ranks for PR unity and the rakyat, his presence at a PKR-DAP dinner for campaigners and supporters in Restoran Tong Fook later must have dealt a severe blow to BN’s hopes of disuniting PKR and DAP campaigners. Full report here.
