WHY DID SDP CEC VOTE IN POLITICAL LIGHTWEIGHT WONG AS SDP CHAIRMAN?

During GE2015, I was enthralled with the resurgent SDP, an SDP who had credible, knowledgable and professional candidates to stand for elections. People like Dr Paul Tambyah or Mr Damanhuri Abbas who clearly knew their stuff. Dr Paul is a potential Health Minister waiting in the wings while Mr Abbas understands the concerns of the Malay community at the back of his palm. I have to be frank, when it was revealed that Ms Wong was elected as SDP's second in command, I was puzzled. No disrespect to her but when compared to candidates like Dr Paul and Mr Damanhuri, she is a political lightweight who has little weight to carry a team on her own.
