The DAP annual retreat was held over the weekend. All state assemblyman and Members of Parliament attended the event. The retreat was supposed to take place in the beginning of January but it had to be postponed twice by reason of the Kuala Terengganu and Bukit Gantang bye elections.

We were briefed on the latest political situation by our party leaders. Even outside experts came and spoke to the audience. Notable entrepreneurs also gave they views as to how to achieve certain goals within a certain time.

We were also told the number of new members have increased by nearly 30% since the last general elections. In all aspect the gathering was a success.

DS Anuar spoke to us over lunch. He announced that Pakatan Rakyat(PR) has now agreed to form a number of committees to specifically address issues were members of the PR differ from one another. In particular a committee has now been established to look into and to take a common stand on conversion. Yes, in PR we have differences but we are willing to sit down on equal terms to sort out matters.

Many of the attendees felt very recharged with the event. I hope we will all “turun padang” and get the election machinery working as we expect the Perak state elections will take place soon.
