Chong handing over the appointment letter to Dr Ting as Alan and others watch on.
MIRI: Sarawak Democratic Action Party (DAP) chairman Chong Chieng Jen has appointed Dr Ting Tiong Choon as his political secretary to continue serving the people of Pujut and the party until the expiry of the current term of the State Legislative Assembly (DUN).
The appointment is with immediate effect from today, Chong announced at a press conference at the DAP Pujut Service Centre.
Dr Ting was elected the Pujut assemblyman in the 2016 state polls.
However, the Federal Court had decided on Tuesday to uphold a motion passed by DUN to disqualify Dr Ting as a member over his dual citizenship despite his renouncing it before contesting in the state election.
