GE13: DAP’s Dr Boo challenged to step down as state party chief after polls

(The Star) – Johor DAP vice-chairman Ong Kow Meng has challenged state party chairman Dr Boo Cheng Hau to step down after the 13th general election.

He said he wanted Dr Boo to honour his announcement that he would step down, made at the the state party committee meeting held on Sunday, April 7, at the Gelang Patah service centre.

Ong said Dr Boo was no longer suitable to lead the party in Johor due to his style of leadership.

“Instead of uniting party’s members, he has caused fractions in Johor DAP,” he claimed in a press conference here Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Dr Boo Cheng Hau, when met at a function in Johor Baru later, was evasive on the subject.

“Ong claimed that I had said those words in a recent meeting, but did I?,” he questioned.

Dr Boo said that he would have to review the minutes of the meeting before making any statements pertaining the matter.
