GE13: DAP picks Teo Nie Ching for Kulai parliament seat

KULAI: DAP's Teo Nie Ching (pix) will be moving from Serdang where she served as MP to contest in the Kulai parliamentary seat in the 13th general election.

The announcement was made by DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng during a Pakatan Rakyat ceramah in Jalan Pasar here Tuesday night.

The announcement also put an end to speculation for the Kulaijaya seat between Teo and Petaling Jaya Utara MP Tony Pua who were both shortlisted as candidates for the seat, which was held by former MCA president Tan Sri Ong Ka Ting.

Teo will be facing Kulai MCA deputy chairman Tay Chin Hein, 45.

Meanwhile, Lim also announced the party's Johor Socialist Youth (Dapsy) assistant publicity secretary and progressive social research executive director Wong Shu Qi, 30, as the candidate for the Senai state seat.

This also means that incumbent Senai state assemblyman Ong Kow Meng has been dropped.
