The guy in the photo – Zulkifli Mohd Noor – used to be a vice chairman of the DAP.
It is impossible for Malays to be elected to a top position by the DAP delegates vote. So what the Father & Son do is they appoint the Malay chap as window dressing.
En. Zulkifli no doubt deserves to be an office holder for his contribution spanning decades in the party and coming pre-2008, i.e. before DAP hit paydirt in the Penang, Perak and Selangor state legislatures. Previously – in the era before “Ubah” and “Ini kali lah” – the Malays were shy to be involved with the then struggling party.
UBAH: Dulu DAP lain, sekarang lain
Today, of course it’s a different story entirely and DAP is swamped with evangelista carpetbaggers and the spiritual children of Yammy Mammy.
The DAP Johnny-Come-Lately are making big bucks. For example, exposed below is the house in Bandar Baru Tambun, Ipoh belonging to the evangelista David Nga Kor Ming (one half of the DAP Perak warlord cousins).
Now you can well understand why Madame Speaker does the things she does to hold on to power and her position.
The DAP evangelista politicians are the Orang Kaya Baru.
It is not Zul’s fault that he was “unelectable” to the party hierarchy. The mindset of the DAP members is such that they refuse to vote a Malay into the CEC.
We can see from the results of the party’s CEC election (see chart below) where the Chinese candidates for the party posts got the majority votes as did Karpal and his son Gobind. Malays however were trailing far behind in the party election, even the ones like Zairil who had Guan Eng’s stamp of approval.
In the chart below, the beige-coloured bars denote DAP Chinese contestants vying for a central committee seat in the party and the number of votes they received. Maroon-coloured bars denote Indians and brown, Malays.

Zul finally parts ways with DAP
But anyway, the news today is that former DAP vice chairman Zulkifli is announced as the pro-tem president of a new party called PAP.
It is very naughty of Zul to launch a party bearing the acronym ‘PAP’ – People’s Alternative Party – which is obviously a dig at the DAP’s origins from the ruling party of Singapore.
The Malays don’t have any meaningful role in the DAP. The pretty young Malay woman Rara might as well be an umbrella girl in role. She’s nothing more than eye candy.
Amran: “Satu apa pun perjuangan bapa saya dalam DAP tak disebut”
The young man pictured with Tun is Amran Ahmad who is the son of Ahmad Nor – the first ever Malay Parliamentarian produced by the DAP (one term MP for Bayan Baru, Penang in 1990).
As with Zulkifli Mohd Noor, likewise Ahmad Nor at one time was a DAP vice chairman also.
Nonetheless the disillusioned Amran Ahmad says that Malays are only worth 5 sen in the DAP – see 20 Sept 2013 interview in Antarapos.
Tunku Aziz to DAP: Leave Malays and their religion well alone, please!
Another ex-DAP fella is more than merely disillusioned; Tunku Aziz is positively disgruntled with the party.
And it’s not just the Malays but DAP’s former Indian leaders also who are scratching their heads at what the party has become.

Listen to what the Dapsters are saying about PAS
Former DAP Johor deputy chairman Norman Fernandez today fired a broadside at the marvel of those two strange bedfellows – the Islamist party and the Christian evangelical (my description, not Norman’s) party – sleeping together but with each with different dreams.
