GEORGE TOWN - The state government has barred Tanjung Bungah assemblyman Teh Yee Cheu from using state funds of RM200,000 for his constituency because it has lost confidence in him, according to DAP.
State DAP vice-chairman and Bukit Bendera MP Zairil Khir Johari said he will take over the administration of the Tanjung Bungah constituency based on instructions from the state government.
Tanjung Bungah is one of the state seats under Bukit Bendera.
Zairil said the media had reported that Teh would quit DAP after his term ends.
“This means he would go up against DAP in the coming general election.
“If one of your people said he would leave and become a rival, there’s no way any organisation in this world will entrust you with the responsibility anymore,” he told a press conference at his service centre here yesterday.
Reports yesterday quoted Teh as saying that he had received a copy of a letter issued by the north-east district officer to all Village Security and Development Committees (JKKKs) in his constituency to refer to Zairil from Jan 15 for allocations.
An annual allocation of RM200,000 is given to Pakatan Harapan elected representatives to fund small projects and
