Wee Choo Keong (simplified Chinese: 黄朱强, pinyin: Huáng Zhūqiáng) is a Malaysian politician. He is a former Member of Parliament for the Wangsa Maju, a constituency situated in the capital, Kuala Lumpur. After stints in the Democratic Action Party (DAP), Malaysian Democratic Party (MDC) which he formed, and Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), Wee is now an independent, having quit PKR in 2010.[1]

Political career[edit]

Wee started his political career as a member of the DAP and was elected as member of parliament for the Kuala Lumpur Bandar constituency (later renamed Bukit Bintang constituency).[2]

Expulsion from Parliament and party[edit]

In 1993, an injunction was issued against Wee and two other defendants from "printing, circulating or publishing any allegation of impropriety about the companies" after a case was brought by MBf alleging the defendants "unlawfully conspired with each other with the predominant purpose of injuring the companies by unlawful means".[3] MBf later applied to have the defendants (including Wee) held in contempt of court for failing to obey the injunction.[3] The application succeeded against Wee and another of his co-defendants and Wee was eventually ordered to pay a RM7,000 fine on appeal.[3] He was removed from the Kuala Lumpur Bandar seat in 1995 after a controversial court case which nullified his election victory due to the fine he had received.[2] He was ejected from the DAP in 1998 after being accused of damaging the parties' image and went on to form the Malaysian Democratic Party (MDP).[2] He later attempted to join Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) but was rejected by the party who stated at the time they did not want renegades from DAP.[2] Due to the ruling against him in the 1995 court case, he was unable to contest the 1999 election.[4] He contested the 2004 elections but did not even receive enough votes to keep his deposit.[5]

The injunction against Wee brought by MBf was set aside in 2007 with the Court of Appeal ruling "The injunction was too wide in its terms and almost oppressive".[3] He later sought damages against MBf and AmBank (who had acquired MBf) for loss of income due his inability to be an MP and the damage to his professional standing as a lawyer.[4]

Wee Choo Keong was later referred to by V.K. Lingam in the Lingam tape.[6] After the video tape was made public in 2007, Wee stated he intended to file for judicial review of the 1995 decision.[6] Later, he also lodged a report with Suhakam over the tape arguing it demonstrated his human rights had been infringed.[7][8][9]

Parti Keadilan Rakyat[edit]

Before the 2008 election, although still a member of the MDP, he was invited to join the PKR now under the de facto leadership of Anwar Ibrahim and contest the Wangsa Maju constituency[2] which he later won with a slim majority of 150.[10]

In May 2010, Wee left PKR to sit in Parliament as an independent, citing disappointment with the PKR-led state government in Selangor's handling of the Dengkil sand mining scandal and what he called "little Napoleons and trendy leftists" taking control of the party.[1][11]
