KOTA KINABALU: The recent fall out between DAP and PAS speaks volumes of the vulnerability of Pakatan Rakyat to exist as a political alliance.
It reaffirms the fact that the very existence of Pakatan Rakyat is premised on mere political convenience. Their conflicting ideologies and fundamental values were all along blinded by their common lust for power, said Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) president Datuk Teo Chee Kang.
He said the call by Lim Kit Siang for a “Save Malaysia” coalition and Sabah’s DAP move for a new Pakatan Rakyat are clear admissions that they had failed to work as a team in toto.
“I find it somewhat meaningless for the declaration by Sabah and Sarawak DAP to sever ties with the local PAS, but their counterparts in Selangor and Penang are still working together in the same state governments.
“If DAP is serious in severing ties with PAS, they should them kick out in the state administration in Selangor and Penang,” said Teo who is also the Special Tasks Minister.
Although all along knowing full well that whoever is the PAS president, their agenda to make Malaysia a theocratic Islamic state shall remain in their party constitution, DAP merely denounced Hadi Awang but would continue to work with PAS if that serves their political interest, this is clearly a political drama to hoodwink the people, Teo pointed out.-Sayangsabah
