Former Youth Leaders

YB Datuk Teo Chee Kang

One of the talented young leaders who is seen to have what it takes to go higher in the Party’s hierarchy.
Only 34-years old, the Membakut-born UK-trained lawyer holds the number two post in the Central Youth Committee.

This speaks for itself his leadership potential and only time will tell how far he would go in the Party and politics as he picks up more experience along the way.

Teo is well known amongst his peers in Chinese Calligraphy and his talents speak no bound as he has talent to sing too.

“My belief in the Party’s struggles had led me to join LDP in 1995. To me, a political aspirant must know where he is heading and has the wisdom and courage to achieve his destiny,” he said.

Edward Wong Kon Fah

The Party’s Central Youth Committee Chief and Tanjung Papat Division’s Vice Chairman.
The 50-year old company manager cum accounts supervisor joined the Party in 1989 and has since been an active member.

Married with two children, Sandakan-born Wong is seen as an effective leader whose seniority and experience prove a valuable asset to the Party.

He commands a high respect among fellow Youth members and the confidence from the Party’s top leadership. He is a man of the community whom he serves in various capacities notably as councillor of the Sandakan Municipal Council for six years now.

Ken Fong Keng Sin, JP

Born in 1958, Ken had his secondary education at La Salle before graduating as a Civil Engineer from the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg in Canada. He is currently a director of his own civil engineering consultancy company and a wastewater treatment specialist company.

Ken is a man who is not afraid of speaking his mind up but only for good measure. He had been vocal when the ruling government in the 1980s decided to be in the opposition as he strongly believes that Sabah cannot be in isolation from the Federation as this would impede development in the State. His involvement in politics then essentially arose when he perceived the importance of a good State and Federal relationship.

Ken then joined the Party in 1990 as he found the leaders in the Party shared the common view of having a good relationship with the Federal Government. Since then, there is no turning back for this Kota Kinabalu born man. His loyalty to the Party is written on the wall.

Ken has been instrumental in cultivating the culture of loyalty to the Party’s youth. He believes that knowledge provides a clearer sense of purpose among members and as well as greater sense of responsibility and pride.

Ken’s contribution in the Party is immeasurable although there were times he would prefer not to take centre stage in the political arena.
