DAP suspends Kapayan rep for three months, beginning and of the end of DAP Sabah

KOTA KINABALU - DAP has slapped a three-month suspension on Dr Edwin Bosi on the grounds that the Kapayan assemblyman has tarnished the party's reputation in his statements to the media.

Sabah DAP secretary Chan Foong Hin, when contacted on Monday night, confirmed that the party's disciplinary committee had ordered for Dr Bosi's suspension to take effect from May 29.

However, Dr Bosi said that he had yet to receive the suspension letter.

"I was informed by secretary Chan via WhatsApp. I have not read the letter.

"I am very disappointed as I did not attack or condemn the party. I was focused on the chairman Stephen Wong, whose leadership is questionable in terms of credibility.

"I will respond when I read the letter and also after I consult my people," he said.

According to a copy of the letter, signed by DAP disciplinary committee secretary Tai Sin Piau, the suspension was due to a complaint by the Sabah DAP state committee, which alleged that Dr Bosi had tarnished the party's reputation in various adverse statements to the media.

It said that the committee had deliberated on the complaint against Dr Bosi and found evidence that he had made repeated public statements and comments in the media, including threatening to quit the party in the event he is not retained as a candidate in the 14th General Election.

Dr Bosi was also found to have made repeated public statements and comments in the media that he has no trust in Sabah DAP chairman Stephen Wong.

"It is evident that you have failed to conduct yourself in a manner befitting of a responsible member, leader and elected representative of the party. You have failed to place the interest of the party above your own and did not utilise internal channels to raise your grouses," the letter said.

Dr Bosi has two weeks to appeal the suspension.

Bosi accuses Wong of acting alone on seats

Published on: Sunday, May 21, 2017:
Kota Kinabalu: Kapayan Assemblyman Dr Edwin Bosi has accused DAP Sabah Chairman Stephen Wong of acting alone in negotiating seats for the coming election.

He said he suspected this after Stephen refused to confirm that DAP incumbents in the State, including himself and Kota Kinabalu Member of Parliament Jimmy Wong, would be fielded again in the next election.

"When a chairman cannot confirm the incumbent YBs to defend their seats, it became suspicious because he (Stephen) is negotiating the seats alone.

"A lot of rumours have been spreading that Jimmy and I will be dropped. It appears that the rumours do have some basis after all," he said.

He added that it is also ironic that Stephen himself cannot confirm that he would be contesting and took it as a sign of weak leadership.

"It shows a sign of lacklustre leadership and rightly he should be changed so that the party can face the coming 14th General Election with confidence," he insisted, while recommending that DAP Sabah Secretary Chan Foong Hin should take over the chairmanship.

He also criticised former party comrade Junz Wong who had joined forces with Stephen to grab top posts in DAP Sabah two years only to betray the latter afterwards.

"I was taken aback when Junz ditched the DAP for Party Warisan bringing with him eight State committee members. Firstly, Junz has weakened the Party.

"Secondly, Junz has betrayed the delegates who voted for him and his team.

"Thirdly, Junz has also, by ditching DAP Sabah, clearly implied that Stephen's leadership is weak and untrustworthy," he said. - DE
