SUPP's Party Elections - The Race Has Just Started

SUPP's party elections are due to be held towards the end of the year. On the run-up to the elections, the party has started to get stirred up. From the top leaders to the branch levels, a wave of heated excitement is blowing across. This is primarily prompted by the planned step-down of Tan Sri Dr. George Chan as the chief at the year-end elections.

On the face of it, the event seemed to take a dramatic turn last week when Datuk Seri Wong Soon Koh announced his support for Tan Sri Dr. George Chan to continue to lead the party. The reversal took a lot of political watchers by surprise.

Is the storm in the party now over? Some political pundits read the latest development as just a disguise. The race for the party leadership has just started. Datuk Seri Wong Soon Koh's calculated move was to consolidate his foothold in the party. But he never conceals his ambition to move higher. As such, he may put his card on the table any time if the event turns right for him.

A wind of change is blowing hard in SUPP. Stay tuned in to the developments.
