Er Teck Hwa (simplified Chinese: 余德华; traditional Chinese: 余德華; pinyin: Yú Dé Huá; born 17 December 1972) is a Malaysian politician and the Member of the Parliament of Malaysia for the Bakri constituency in the State of Johor. He is a member of the Democratic Action Party (DAP) party in the Pakatan Rakyat opposition coalition.
The Star columnist Lee Yuk Peng has said that Er has impacted parliament with his "efforts to bring issues close to the heart for parliamentary deliberation" and had the "reputation of being a hard working and dedicated MP" prepared to ask questions in parliament despite his lack of proficiency in Malay.
He started his primary education in SJK(C) Chung Hwa 2A, Muar. He continued his secondary education in SMK Jalan Junid, Muar.
Er was first elected to Parliament in the 2008 election winning the seat of Bakri from the governing Barisan Nasional coalition. Upon his election, Er, a Mandarin speaker, stated that he was planning to hire private tutors to improve his Malay and English language skills to communicate more effectively with his constituents.
Presistence paid off for Er when his second emergency motion on the accident involving an express bus was allowed to be debated in Parliament on 3 November 2010. He filed his first emergency motion on the fatal accident in Simpang Ampat on 14 October 2010 but it was dismissed on 18 October 2010. This was also the first emergency motion to be allowed in 2010 as most of them were rejected on the grounds that there was no urgency for the matters raised.
