PETALING JAYA, Jan 20 (Sin Chew Daily) – Selangor state executive councilor cum Kinrara state assemblyman Ng Sze Han is expected to contest the Teratai state assembly seat in the next election, after the incumbent Lai Wai Chong quit DAP to become an independent.

An assistant to a former Kajang municipal councilor for six years, Lee said he was very familiar with the duties of a municipal councilor and had faith he could do his new job well.
Meanwhile, Yew Jia Haur was Selayang municipal councilor from 2013 to 2018. Since 2018, he has been the political secretary of Federal Territory DAP public complaints bureau chairman cum Kepong MP Lim Lip Eng, and has plenty of experience handling public complaints and issues related to the residents.
“As a DAP member, I will follow the party’s arrangement whenever I am needed, and am ready to serve the people.”
He said it was an honor to be able to serve the people of Selangor once again.
