Ramkarpal Singh Deo vacated his position as deputy minister in charge of legal affairs to prevent allegations that the DAP practises nepotism, the party secretary-general Anthony Loke revealed in a press conference this evening.

Loke said Ramkarpal decided so after learning his brother Gobind would return to the Cabinet as the digital minister.

β€œHe was not comfortable by the fact that his brother is a minister and he is a deputy minister,” Loke told reporters at the DAP headquarters in Kuala Lumpur.

Ramkarpal is replaced by M Kulasegaran, also from the DAP and formerly the human resources minister. – MMO
