Willie took advantage of loophole to switch parties, says Sarawak DAP chairman

Datuk Willie Mongin should resign as MP because he was among those who voted for the passing of the anti-party hopping law in Parliament recently, said Democratic Action Party (DAP) Sarawak chairman Chong Chieng Jen.

(MMO) – He said what Willie did was ‘just morally wrong’.

Chong, who is Stampin MP and Padungan assemblyman, believed that Willie could do what he did because the anti-party hopping law would come into full effect after the gazette of notification and definitely before the 15th general election (GE15).

Moreover, he said Willie took advantage of the situation where the amendments had not fully come into force.

Adding on, Chong said Willie should not have taken advantage of the loophole in the law and change parties after having won Puncak Borneo in the GE14 back in 2018.

“If Willie is a man of honour, he should resign because you should not take advantage of the loophole in the law and then, do something that is morally wrong; you also voted for the passing of the anti-hopping (law, and) the constitutional amendments.
