PETALING JAYA: Prominent blogger Jeff Ooi is set to join the DAP and contest in the general election.
The DAP is planning a “welcoming ceremony” on Tuesday to announce his crossover from blogosphere to party politics. Top party leaders as well as some of Ooi’s blogger friends will attend the ceremony.
Ooi, in his 50s, is an e-business consultant but is better known for his blog which focuses on current issues with an emphasis on politics. He is also an expert of sorts on the new media.
According to sources, the party has Ooi in mind for the Puchong parliamentary seat as well as the Kinrara state seat.The Stars online, Sunday July 29, 2007
