DAP delegate questions why Karpal uses media

(NST) – A delegate at the state DAP convention yesterday questioned party national chairman Karpal Singh’s (pic) ability to voice his opinion in the central executive committee (CEC).

Taman Alma branch chief David Marshall said he was left wondering why the Bukit Gelugor member of parliament had to resort to using the media to voice his concerns and proposals regularly.

“I want to know if the CEC has not given him much opportunity to speak during its meetings.”

Marshall said he was not out to criticize anyone but to seek clarification from the party.

He raised this question during the convention debate and state DAP chairman Chow Kon Yeow later told reporters that the party member had asked the question based on observations that Karpal had been talking to the media regularly.

He said Karpal had raised many issues, including the single-seat single candidate policy.
