Updates on the DAP Penang State Convention 2020 & the DAP National Congress 2020

Media statement by DAP Penang State Secretary, Lim Hui Ying, dated 2 November 2020:

Updates on the DAP Penang State Convention 2020 and the DAP National Congress 2020

There have been some changes to the DAP Penang State Convention 2020 and the DAP National Congress 2020.

Firstly, in view of the COVID-19 pandemic, the DAP Central Executive Committee (CEC) has granted a 6 months extension to all DAP State Committees which are due to hold their Conventions this year. This means that the DAP Penang State Convention and therefore elections will be postponed to a future date when the situation becomes safer and more conducive.

Secondly, the Registrar of Societies (ROS) has stated that the DAP National Congress should be held before 31 December 2020. In view of the recent spike of new cases of COVID-19 in the country, DAP National Organising Secretary, Anthony Loke has made an appeal to ROS on 5 October 2020 for the Congress to be given at least a 6 months extension.

As the Congress will involve 4,000 delegates from all over the country, we sincerely hope that ROS will grant us the extension.

More information will be provided when we receive a response from ROS.


槟州民主行动党州秘书林慧英在2020年11月2日的媒体声明:

有关槟州民主行动党2020年常年代表大会和民主行动党2020年全国代表大会的最新进展

槟州民主行动党2020年常年代表大会和民主行动党2020年全国代表大会将稍作调整。

首先,鉴于新冠肺炎疫情,民主行动党中央执行委员会已允许各州委会将今年的代表大会展延6个月。 为此,民主行动党槟州常年代表大会及党选也将展延,并在疫情稳定后再择日召开。

其次,社团注册局(ROS)表示,民主行动党全国代表大会应于2020年12月31日之前举行。然而因近日新冠肺炎确诊案例的攀升,民主行动党全国组织秘书陸兆福已于2020年10月5日向社团注册局提出上诉,要求将代表大会展延至少6个月。

由于全国代表大会将有4000名来自全国各地的代表参加,因此我们衷心希望社团注册局允许我们展延大会的召开。

我们也将在收到社团注册局最新回应后,再跟大家汇报详情。
