DAP AND THE GODFATHER SYNDROME
The godfather & Son
DAP as a political party hasn’t changed for more than five decades (that is 50 years). This, is an undeniable FACT. Since its official formation in 1966 (plus a few more years before that), DAP is Lim Kit Siang and Lim Kit Siang is DAP.
DAP is and has been a One-Man dictatorship, with the full support of the Lim Dynasty.
DAP’s structure of leadership has not experienced any true sense of changed since its inception in 1966. Almost all the political parties (UMNO, MIC, MCA,GERAKAN and whatnot) have changed their leaders and office bearers in the last few decades but what about those who are shouting and crying out for change like DAP?
Throughout his political life, Lim Kit Siang has been calling on BN leaders to quit because ‘you have been too long”, ‘give others a chance’, ‘you are getting old’ etc, but what about him? Where is the change that you are shouting about Mr.Lim Kit Siang?
When Lim Kit Siang reluctantly moved on from the powerful secretary-general’s post to be the party Chairman, he preserved the coveted secretary-general’s post for Lim Guan Eng.
Malacca’s Kerk Kim Hock was made to warm the secretary-general’s post until Guan Eng sorted out his legal/personal problems. Once Guan Eng was ready, Kim Hock was unceremoniously removed and sent to the political wilderness. He has since retired from politics.
If the above facts are not NEPOTISM of the highest order, I don’t know what nepotism is then.
DAP’s former Bukit Bintang Member of Parliament Wee Choo Keong, a once young and upcoming DAP grassroots leader, for instance was sacked from the party for being a threat to Lim Guan Eng’s rise in the party.
“Wee Choo Keong was sacked for ‘not showing affection’ to the DAP leadership of Lim Kit Siang. What the hell?
Anyway to further entertain my readers, below are a hierarchy of the Lim Dynasty and their position in DAP. My question is, aren't there any other good leaders in DAP? apparently not. :)
