Chin Tong to file election petition over Ayer Hitam loss tomorrow

KUALA LUMPUR, June 11 — Johor DAP chief Liew Chin Tong is hoping the High Court will reverse his narrow GE14 defeat in the Ayer Hitam parliamentary seat to MCA deputy president Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong.

Lawyer Datuk Yeo Yang Poh will be filing the election petition at the High Court in Johor Baru tomorrow.

Liew could only file the petition after the results of the 14th general election were gazetted on May 28, nearly three weeks later.

According to election laws, any aggrieved candidates have 21 days from the date to file an election petition.

Liew garnered 16,773 votes to Wee’s 17,076 votes while PAS’s Mardi Marwan obtained 4,975 votes.

Liew had posted on his Facebook page recently that he has uncovered evidence of bribery and intimidation during the election and urged those with relevant information to come forward.

“We are in a new era in Malaysia. We don’t have to live with disappointment and suffering,” he wrote in his post.

Us Ayer Hitam had undi hantu created by the victor! 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡

*P148 Ayer Hitam parliament seat*

BN 17,076 votes
PKR 16,773 votes
PAS 4,975 votes
Total 38,824 votes.
Registered voters: 36,347
Where are the 2,477 votes from?
Wonder how Wee Ka Siong (BN) won?

This is Ayer Hitam. Something doesn’t make sense. If you add up all the votes for the candidates and compare to the turnout… it doesn’t add up. Were there phantom voters? We all remember there were recount at Ayer Hitam… and FRU was also called in… suspicious?

Blackout in Ayer Hitam event, DAP cries sabotage

Lu Wei Hoong  |  Published on  |  Modified on

GE14 | Already facing a hurdle in holding an event in a key Malay village in Ayer Hitam, DAP suffered a further setback last night when a forum had to be cancelled after the lights went out.

The ‘Umno Kalah, Tergugatkah Melayu?’ (Malays under threat if Umno loses?) forum in the Johor parliamentary constituency was to have featured Ilham Centre executive director Hisomuddin Bakar, human rights lawyer Syahredzan Johan and DAP Paloh candidate Sheikh Omar Ali.

The talk was slated to be held in the Dato Sukiman Sahlan R&R Centre in Parit Botak at 9pm.

But illumination only came from the pavilion with the rest of the street lights and lights in nearby stores turned off.

About 30 Pakatan Harapan supporters had gathered in the darkness waiting for the forum to begin.

Johor DAP chief and Ayer Hitam candidate Liew Chin Tong smelled sabotage.

“Suddenly the lights were turned off. I heard that the owner was instructed to close the store.

“I believe our opponent is trying to prevent us from holding any activity here. I hope our opponent can adhere to (the principle of) fair competition. They did not need to sabotage us and prevent voters from getting in touch with us,” Liew told reporters when met.

The Dato Sukiman Sahlan R&R Centre is managed by the Batu Pahat Municipal Council. It is learned that DAP did not submit an official application to the council to hold the event.

However, Samsol denied Umno sabotaged the DAP event.

“R&R was managed by the relevant shop owners. Umno does not have right to force them to open business or not,” he told Malaysiakini through WhatsApp.

DAP’s Liew Chin Tong to take on MCA’s Wee Ka Siong in Ayer Hitam

DAP state chairman Liew Chin Tong will take on MCA deputy president Wee Ka Siong for the Ayer Hitam parliamentary seat in the 14th general election.

The much anticipated challenge for the seat by Liew was announced by the party’s secretary-general, Lim Guan Eng.

“We are fielding Saudara Liew in this Umno and Barisan Nasional stronghold. Help make the Pakatan Harapan challenge to form the next government a reality,” he said in announcing the party’s first candidate for the polls at the party’s 52nd anniversary programme in Ayer Hitam this morning.

In an earlier interview, Liew had told the Malaysian Insight that if PH could win the Ayer Hitam federal seat, it could probably win 10 more parliamentary seats in Johor.

Acknowledging that it was an MCA and BN stronghold, the Kluang MP said Ayer Hitam had never featured in the opposition’s list of target seats.

However, he said the seat was not impenetrable.

“In the past, Ayer Hitam never featured as a target seat. But this time, we are targeting it because if we can win in Ayer Hitam, then we can definitely win 10 more federal seats in Johor,” Liew said at the launch of the PH Ayer Hitam election centre in January.

Kit Siang: Ayer Hitam the deciding seat in quest for Putrajaya

Ayer Hitam, a BN stronghold-parliamentary seat in Johor, has now become a barometer for Pakatan Harapan to take Putrajaya and Johor in the coming general election, said DAP veteran Lim Kit Siang.

“If we can win Ayer Hitam, we can win Johor and federal (government),” he said when officiating Pakatan Harapan’s election center at Ayer Hitam.

“That’s why Ayer Hitam is so important. But it is not easy to win, it is very tough,” he said.

“Last year, I spoke that 10 percent Malay votes and five percent non-Malay votes against BN would enable us to win 113 parliamentary seats in the peninsula.

“But in the case of Ayer Hitam seat, we would need at least a 15 percent swing in Malay votes and 10 percent of non-Malay votes,” he said.

The current MP for the Malay-majority Ayer Hitam is MCA deputy president Wee Ka Siong.

It was reported that Harapan has allocated Ayer Hitam for DAP, which has agreed to allow an Amanah candidate to contest under DAP’s ticket.

However, it was recently speculated that DAP wanted to field its own candidate at the seat.

MCA Wee Ka Siong questioned Voir’s involvement in Penang tunnel project bcoz he is ignorant of conglomerate business model adopted by companies like Samsung & Sime Darby. Or, he just WANNA CONFUSE EVERYONE!


Is Wee deliberately misunderstanding facts of Penang’s tunnel project?

Joshua Woo Sze Zeng, MPSP
(Updated )


The Minister in the Prime Minister Department Wee Ka Siong questions the involvement of Vertice Bhd (formerly known as Voir Holdings Bhd) as a shareholder in the Penang tunnel project.He also asked why China’s companies such as Beijing Urban Construction Group (BUCG) is not involved anymore, contrary to the initial announcement in 2013.

Vertice Bhd’s involvement is the result of the company’s business diversification. It is very common for businesses to diversify, venture into new industries, following the conglomerate business model.

Samsung began as a trucking business, providing transportation services. The company is now most famous for its smartphones, among its other involvement in construction, healthcare, and theme park businesses.

Louis Vuitton started as manufacturer of travel trunks before becoming well-known as a luxury brand for clothing, jewellery, and wine.

Sime Darby Berhad, a GLC, began in the rubber business. Now, it is a conglomerate corporation with businesses in healthcare, palm oil, hypermarket, logistics, and property development.

Wee has no problem with Sime Darby, but finds faults with Vertice just because it is a project spearheaded by Penang state government under Pakatan Harapan. Either that or he is merely ignorant of conglomerate business model, which the federal government also adopts.

Regarding BUCG, the company was indeed involved in the tunnel project initially. However after the crane hook from a BUCG construction site in Kuala Lumpur fell and killed 23-year-old Penangite Chin Khoon Sing in 2016, the company was removed from the project.

At that time, Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng declared that the state government does not want irresponsible contractor in the tunnel project.

It may be perfectly fine for MCA’s Wee to work with irresponsible contractors, but not so for Harapan. The Penang state government cherishes Malaysian lives.
