JOHOR BARU: Skudai state assemblyman Dr Boo Cheng Hau is disappointed that Tan Hong Ping would contest for the seat in the 14th General Election (GE14) instead of him.
DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng announced in Batu Pahat on Saturday night that Boo, 54, would make way for Tan, the incumbent Mengkibol assemblyman.
Boo has rejected the offer by the party to contest in Labis parliamentary seat. "There are several grass root leaders have rejected the offer, and they are allowed to stay, why can't I?" he said.
However, Boo said he would stay in the party and help the DAP and Pakatan Harapan (PH) win the election.
He said several PH leaders had phoned him and said that he should defend his Skudai seat.
