Committee chairman Tan Kok Wai said the "light" sentence was meted out after the committee had taken into consideration Lim's public apology. Additionally, Lim had immediately replied to the show-cause letter issued by the committee on Nov 29. "He will have 14 days to appeal against the decision to the central working committee," said Tan.Lim said he accepted the decision and would not appeal.
At the Selangor DAP convention, Lim, who is also Segambut member of parliament, caused a ruckus when he shouted "Teresa (Kok) won!" while the ballots were being counted. The chairman ordered Lim to be removed, but Lim returned during the announcement of the results, where he shouted "yes!" numerous times, prompting him to be ejected again.
Lim supported Seputeh MP Teresa Kok, who was elected Selangor DAP chief.
