KUALA LUMPUR: Former DAP Sabah Chairman Datuk Jimmy Wong has been urged to reconsider his decision of quitting DAP as his vast contributions and assistance are greatly valued by the party.
DAP Deputy Secretary-General Teresa Kok has made the urgency after Wong resigned following the DAP Sabah election last Sunday.
“I read the announcement of the former DAP Sabah chairman and Kota Kinabalu MP Jimmy Wong about quitting the party with great shock and sadness.
“I would like to urge our veteran leader to reconsider his decision of quitting the party,” she said in a statement today.
Kok explained in the DAP Sabah election, some incumbents have been voted out including Wong, which also triggered his resignation.
“I hope Wong can understand that the outcome of the state election might not satisfy the expectation of everyone in Sabah DAP, but this was the outcome arising from the process of democracy.
“The party leadership values the contributions of Wong to the party and the people of Sabah in the past years.
“Although he has retired from active politics in Sabah, his contributions and assistance to the party in Sabah is still very much needed.
“I further hope that Jimmy Wong will introspect and reflect upon his decision and retract his resignation soon,” she added.
