WELCOME to Chee Khing's website!

There is a famous quote by the Greek philosopher Plato: One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. This is also the life motto of Cheong Chee Khing.

Chee Khing, 39, married with a son. He was born in Pasir Pinji, Ipoh. He was brought up in squatters in Menglembu. He studied at SRJK(C) Min Tek , Falim. He obtained his Electrical Engineering Diploma at Linton Technology College and later worked for a US-based company. He has 17-years experience in high-tech industry. Chee Khing’s capabilities have enabled him to be the youngest manager in the company. He is good in corporate management. He is in charge of Engineering project and financial planning, engineering investment and economic policies for the company branches in Malaysia.

Chee Khing cames from a humble background. He gained his success with his inexorable pertinacity. Although he had to earn his living as a factory worker in his early age, he never gave up his dreams of pursuing higher educations. He spent 7 years as a part-time student and finally obtained an Honour Degree in Electrical Engineering from University Technology Malaysia and MBA in 2004, he is a registered qualified Engineer under The Institution of Engineers Malaysia(IEM). Due to the restriction of the University and University Colleges Act (UCCA), when Chee Khing was studying in UTM, he did not join DAP until he obtained his Master Degree. He joins DAP as he shares the idealism of the party: to realize a Malaysian Malaysia where all Malaysians, regardless of race or religion, can enjoy justice, freedom, democracy. While DAP was attracting more young professionals, Chee Khing has been given an important task and become DAPSY secretary of Ipoh Timor as well as Political Secretary to Pasir Pinji State Assemblyman Thomas Su. During the 12th General Election, in an agreement of the seats allocation between DAP and PKR, Chee Khing lost the chance to contest in a constituency which he has worked on for many years. Nevertheless, he was not despair and through continuous efforts being elected as Political Education Director for DAP Perak and continue to be political secretary to YB Thomas Su. At the same time, he is also the assistance to Member of Parliament YB M Kula and elected as chairman for Canning Garden branch and National Executives Committee of DAPSY.

Chee Khing had campaigned for farmers’ land, he collected thousands of signatures and petitions to the Menteri Besar of Perak, he urged the state government to be fair to the farmers and also appealed the state government to issue land titles instead of lease titles. Chee Khing is also very concerned about human rights and indigenous groups. In order to understand how indigenous groups had been affected by water pollution caused by logging activities, he even brought a group of volunteers to conduct a field work in the remote residential area. In January 2008, Chee Khing and party members as well as 50 indigenous people went to Kuala Lumpur and submitted a memorandum to SUHAKAM to interfere and help them to address the issue of customary land that has been sold illegally for profit which deprived of their rights.


Apart from that, Chee Khing also makes the effort on helping women, which including filing their case to Consumer Tribunal, and also providing assistance for helpless women to get social welfare and financial assistant.
