Dato' Sri Dr. Wee Jeck Seng (Chinese: ; pinyin: ; Pe?h-?e-j?: Ûi? Ji?t-sing; born 20 April 1964) is a Malaysian politician. He is a member of the Malaysian Chinese Association (MCA), a major component party of the Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition. He is currently serving as Member of Parliament (MP) for Tanjong Piai constituency in the state of Johor since 2019 for the second time. Prior to that he served in that role the first time for a tenure of two terms; from 2008 to 2013 and 2013 to 2018 before losing it in the 14th general election. Wee was also the former assemblyman (MLA) in the Johor State Legislative Assembly for Pekan Nanas from 2004 to 2008.
Wee was born on 20 April 1964 at his hometown in Pontian, Johor. He is married to Lin Ruyun. He graduated with Bachelor of Business Management from the University of Sunderland. Wee received his Doctorate in Public Management from Universiti Utara Malaysia in 2019.
Wee was first elected as member of the Johor State Legislative Assembly for Pekan Nanas constituency for one term from 2004 to 2008. Prior to Wee's election, he was MCA president Ong Ka Ting's political secretary. Wee was elected to federal Parliament in the 2008 general election for the seat of Tanjong Piai. Wee was nominated for the seat by the MCA after it was vacated by Ong to contest the Kulai seat.
Immediately after his election to the Parliament in 2008, Wee was appointed as a Deputy Minister of Youth and Sports in the government of prime minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi. He retained his appointment when incoming prime minister Najib Tun Razak reshuffled the ministry in April 2009. However, he was dropped from the ministry in June 2010 following MCA leadership elections.
Wee won and retained his Tanjong Piai parliamentary seat in the 2013 general election but lost his parliamentary seat to Mohamed Farid Md Rafik from the Malaysian United Indigenous Party (BERSATU) of Pakatan Harapan (PH) in the 2018 general election.
In November 2019, Wee managed to return as an opposition MP for Tanjung Piai after he was chosen by the BN as their candidate again to contest the 2019 Tanjung Piai by-election set-upon by the sudden death of incumbent Mohamed Farid and won the six-cornered polls with a landslide majority of 15,086 votes.
In the 2019 Tanjung Piai by-election campaigning time where Wee was a candidate then, he was accused of wasting public funds recklessly during his term as Labuan Port Authority (LPA) chairman from 2017 to 2018 by his successor Chan Foong Hin. It was disclosed under Wee, the LPA had committed to a three-year tenancy for an office at Menara UOA, in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur which was never occupied that would amount to RM526,836.96 and had splurged on its renovations included a high-tech toilet with auto/smart toilet bowl, in which the bill came up to RM343,180.50.
