Su Keong Siong, known as Thomas Su (simplified Chinese: 苏建祥; traditional Chinese: 蘇建祥; pinyin: Sū Jiànxiáng) is a Malaysian lawyer and politician of Chinese descent. He is a member of Democratic Action Party (DAP), a component party of the Pakatan Harapan (PH) coalition. He is currently serving as a Member of Parliament (MP) for Kampar and previously for Ipoh Timor.
Su first involved in politics when he contested but lost as DAP candidate in 1999 for the state seat of Malim Nawar in Perak. He however was successfully elected to the Perak State Assembly in 2004 and again in 2008 for the constituency of Pasir Pinji in Perak. During the short Pakatan Rakyat (PR) coalition rules of Perak, he was elected as an exco member in the state government led by Menteri Besar Nizar Jamaluddin in 2008. In the 2013 election Su won the Ipoh Timor parliamentary seat and succeeded incumbent Lim Kit Siang as its MP, who contested in Gelang Patah in Johor. In the 2018 election Su contested and won the Kampar parliamentary seat instead.
