DAP's CAT slogan is a sham

Update 27 Aug 2010:

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 27 — Selangor State Executive Councillor Ronnie Liu has emerged the winner from the controversy surrounding his support letters after the DAP decided that no further action would be taken against him.

Political analyst James Wong said this showed “it’s not easy to take any hard decision that could jeopardise his political career” as Liu was known among party circles to be loyal to veteran leader Lim Kit Siang and his son and secretary-general Lim Guan Eng.

“Ronnie Liu has the support of some leaders in the party. Therefore, it will not be easy to take strong action against him,” he said in an interview.

In announcing the decision after last night’s Central Executive Committee (CEC) meeting, party chairman Karpal Singh said the CEC could not consider further action against Liu as he did not file any appeal after he was severely reprimanded by the Disciplinary Committee.

...and so there goes DAP's Competency, Accountability and Transparency dissappearing under a cloud of smoke.

Original post:

As a continuation from my previous post on the
Ronnie Liu letter head issue, it seemed that DAP Supremo has taken the side of YB Liu and YB Karpal Singh has been asked to crack the whip to keep everyone's lips zipped.

Karpal orders gag order on Ronnie Liu controversy

GEORGE TOWN: DAP chairman Karpal Singh has ordered a gag order on all party members over Selangor Exco member Ronnie Liu and the support letter controversy.

“I am directing party members to stop speaking to the media regarding the matter. I am not appealing. I am directing them," he(Karpal) said here Saturday.

Karpal, who is also the Bukit Gelugor MP, said the issue was an internal matter and it would be resolved within the party.

He, however, did not specify if his directive was meant only for the mainstream media or if also covered the alternative media and social media.

Karpal also admitted that the issue had smeared the party’s image in the eyes of the public.

Several DAP leaders, including those from outside of Selangor, have issued statement urging the party to sack Liu over his involvement in the support letter issue.

So much for DAP's C A T - competency, accountability and transparency,
their Disciplinary Committee is Incompetent;
Ronnie Liu does not accept accountability and;
Lim Kit Siang is not interested in Transparency.
