Another DAP assemblyman leaving party?

KOTA KINABALU - Rumours are swirling that Kepayan state assemblyman Datuk Dr Edwin Bosi has resigned from DAP due to internal party politics.

DAP state secretary Junz Wong said he was told Bosi had sent his resignation to the party’s top leadership and they were trying to persuade him to stay.

“I do not know the reason given. We are also not sure what’s happening. But I hope he changes his mind. We do not want him to leave,” said Junz, who is also Likas state assemblyman.

“It came as very sudden to me, I first heard this news a few days ago,” said Junz when contacted by Malay Mail Online.

Other DAP state leaders including chairman Stephen Wong acknowledged the rumour, but declined to comment.

When asked whether the state chapter has received Bosi’s resignation, Wong replied “No” and did not elaborate.

Bosi, a former DAP state secretary, could not be reached for comment.

At the party’s state level elections last November, Kota Kinabalu MP Jimmy Wong, Bosi and Chan were replaced as chairman, secretary and deputy chairman respectively by Stephen, Junz and Joan Goh.

Bosi won the Kepayan seat in Election 2013 by beating MCA’s Datuk Edward Khoo. He received 13,020 votes to win by a majority of 7287 votes.

DAP won four out of the eight seats it contested, but with the departure of Hieu King Cheu to MCA, it is now left with three representatives in the state assembly — Wong, Bosi and Chan Foong Hin for Sri Tanjong.
