An MP and three assemblymen from DAP have quit the party, reported The Star Online.
The four are Kota Melaka MP Sim Tong Him and assemblymen Goh Leong San (Duyong), Lim Jack Wong (Bachang) and Chin Choong Seong (Kesidang).
They are all from Malacca and will continue to serve as independents.
The news portal reported that Sim, at a press conference on Sunday, had said their decision was because they had lost confidence in DAP and were “disappointed with the current leadership”.
He was also reported as saying that the party had deviated from its goals and objectives.
The news portal also reported that Sim and Goh had been suspended for a year from Feb 7 last year by the party’s disciplinary committee for smearing the party’s name through a lawsuit against a fellow party member.
