Sim Tong Him (simplified Chinese: 沈同钦; traditional Chinese: 沈同欽; pinyin: Shěn Tóng Qīn; born 8 September 1948) is an independent member of Malaysian Parliament, after beating Wong Nai Chee with a majority 11,390 vote in the 12th Malaysian general election.
He is also a relative of the Malaysian Chinese educationist Datuk Sim Mow Yu.
He had been the Democratic Action Party (DAP) chairman for Malacca state until 19 December 2005 and was succeeded by Goh Leong San in the hotly contested internal election, which saw DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng and his wife Betty Chew get the lowest number of votes out of 15 candidates, thus causing Chew to lose her seat on the Malacca DAP committee entirely.
Both Sim and Goh party membership was suspended for one-year suspension on 16 February 2016, reportedly for disparaging the party. On 12 February 2017, Sim, along with three other DAP state assemblymen namely Goh (Duyong), Lim Jack Wong (Bachang), and Chin Choong Seong (Kesidang) announced their resignation from the party to be Independent, citing lack of trust in the party leadership.
