Percaturan chauvinis DAP di Pulau Pinang

Percaturan DAP di Pulau Pinang, sebagaimana dipaparkan dalam Blog ini Isnin lepas, semakin mendapat reaksi ‘menggangu’, termasuk Meja Pengarang akhbar perdana. ‘Percaturan’ pembahagian kerusi DAP-PKR, 19:21 dan kemudian dijangka PKR akan berkongsi dengan PAS (DAP tiada ‘pakatan rasmi’ dengan PAS) pembahagian ini 14:7, dilihat sebagai tidak ubah seperti formula pembahagian BN (UMNO/Gerakan/MCA/MIC), 15:13:10:2.

Pengarang Kumpulan NST Dato’ Syed Nazri Syed Harun berpendapat bahawa permainan DAP ini ialah ‘budaya samseng Cina’ dan kenyataan Setiausaha Agung DAP Lim Guan Eng Isnin lepas merupakan ‘kenyataan berisi dan banyak makna’ (dalam kata lain, “ANCAMAN MERBAHAYA!”):

 

SYED NADZRI: DAP game of ‘tai ko’ in Penang

By Syed Nadzri


17 January, 2008

THE DAP appears to be trying to play big brother to Parti Keadilan Rakyat and Pas in Penang and this can be clearly seen from the bipartisan seat allocation pact for the general election sealed last week. The agreement was officially only between DAP and PKR but it is quite obvious that Pas, for strategic purposes, was in the shadows somewhere as the whole idea was for the entire opposition camp to have a loose alliance of planning a one-to-one battle against Barisan Nasional in all 13 parliament and 40 state seats in Penang.

The DAP is taking the lion’s share — seven parliament and 19 state seats — leaving PKR and Pas to distribute the balance. It is interesting to note that among the state seats it has been given in the pact are Sungai Pinang, Bagan Dalam, Perai and Pulau Tikus which PKR had initially wanted. In fact, these seats were also contested by PKR in the last election.

Assuming that PKR and Pas work out a 14:7 formula in the further division of state seats, the opposition pact will, therefore, stand at 19 DAP, 14 Keadilan and 7 Pas. Compare that with the Umno-Gerakan-MCA-MIC formula of 15:13:10:2 used in the last election — and likely to be used again this time — and we have a thrilling prospect in store.

What is also interesting is that although BN won 38 of the 40 seats in the last round, at least six of them were close shaves of fewer than 1,000-vote majority. And these seats are expected to be even more intensely fought this time.

And what is even more interesting is a statement by the DAP that it would back a chief minister from Gerakan if the opposition fails to form the next state government.

The party said the move was to ensure that the coveted chief minister’s post would remain in the hands of a Chinese.

Now that’s what I call a loaded remark. It can set the imagination to run wild in this art of the possible. Let the games begin.

Dato’ Syed Nazri berpendapat, hasrat DAP untuk menafikan UMNO diwakili dalam Kerajaan Negeri Pulau Pinang aka kerajaan cina-oleh masyarakat cina-untuk cina amat membimbangkan dan kenyataan Setiausaha Agung Lim Guan Eng baru baru ini mengenai isu ini jelas menunjukan sikap perkauman parti chauvinis cina itu.

Yang jelas, kedudukan politik BN di Pulau Pinang pusingan ini disifatkan sebagai ‘rapuh’, oleh ramai penganalisa politik, termasuk meja meja pengarang. Walaupun BN menang selesa pusingan lepas dan Kepimpinan PM ‘Flip-Flop’ Dato’ Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi diterima dan boleh dibanggakan oleh warga Pulau Pinang kerana ianya satu kebangaan dan sejarah, namun begitu beberapa kerusi DUN, BN hanya menang majoriti tipis.

Kini terlalu banyak rugutan anak anak Pulau Pinang mengenai keputusan, samada Kerajaan Negeri ataupun isu isu peringkat nasional membelengu emosi dan selera pengundi pengundi pulau mutiara itu. Sememangnya, ini akan ditafsirkan sebagai undi dalam pusingan Pilihanraya Umum ke XII, yang dikatakan akan menjelang dalam tempoh yang amat terdekat ini.

Apa apa pun, ‘gambaran besar’ (the bigger picture) dan analisa makro perlu dipertimbangkan sebelum keputusan strategik seperti menukar atau ‘merubah landskap’ Kerajaan Negeri Pulau Pinang. Semoga pengundi pengundi Pulau Pinang tidak berjaya di’permain’kan dan di’perkuda’kan oleh pendekatan perkauman dan chauvinis sempit DAP, yang sebenarnya tidak akan membawa kepada sebarang pencapaian progressif dalam Malaysia sebagai masyarakat majmuk pelbagai keturunan, adat resam dan kepercayaan ini.
