KOTA KINABALU: It is pointless for any political parties to work together as a coalition when in truth they have different ideologies, vision, and objective, says Foreign Minister, Datuk Seri Anifah Aman.
He was responding to the question regarding on Sabah DAP and PKR cutting their ties with PAS Sabah due to the hudud issue in Malaysia.
Anifah said he is not surprised with the current situation in Pakatan Rakyat (PR), adding that the squabbling is only a ‘matter of time’.
“My question is, if they (Pakatan) are to take over the government with their clashing ideologies, even before they can set up a new government, they are already fighting. They cannot lead the government with this kind of attitude.
In a press conference last night, Sabah PKR Chief, Datuk Lajim Ukin, officially announced Sabah PKR and DAP decision to break their cooperation with Sabah PAS as a sign of protest for the party’s push for hudud in Malaysia.
However, Lajim explained that while Muslim leaders in PKR do not reject hudud as the law is based on al-Quran, they will not support its implementation in Malaysia.
Commenting on Sabah PKR and DAP move to set up a new Pakatan in the state to gain the support of the public, Anifah said the people in Sabah are mature enough see the oppositions’ real intention.
Regarding on Lim Kit Siang’s list of possible prime minister-designates including from Barisan Nasional (BN) in the new post-PR government, Anifah said he agrees with Lim for naming more leaders from BN as possible prime minister.
“He (Kit Siang) did not name himself as a potential prime minister, and I am happy… as it shows that he understand the current political scenario, and I agree with his list of potential prime ministers from BN coalition; he himself may think that there are no one in Pakatan who are qualified, if that is what he meant,” he said. – SayangSabah
