DAP leaders have been ordered to stop airing their grievances in public and instead use internal channels to raise their complaints.

Its national organising secretary Anthony Loke Siew Fook (pic), said recent incidents where party leaders in several states had complained publicly about the party had created a negative impression among the public.

“We have been getting many calls from the public expressing their displeasure over the bickering by our own elected representatives,” Loke said.

He said the central leadership was prepared to meet the state committees and listen to their complaints and find solutions to them.

“We must all be fully aware that we have been entrusted by the people in the recent general election to continue to serve the country for a better Malaysia.

“We all carry the responsibility to strengthen the party internally and to manage our public image,” Loke stressed.

The highlight of the past week was the saga of Duyong assemblyman Goh Leong San and his deputy Lim Jak Wong (Bachang assemblyman), who resigned as opposition leader and opposition whip of the Malacca state assembly respectively on Tuesday.
