DAP says today it will end all ties with PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang, a move which puts the opposition pact, Pakatan Rakyat, in limbo.

DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng said the DAP central executive committee meeting last night had decided to “end ties and cease to work” with Hadi although it remained committed to PR. The party will discuss the pact’s future with PKR.

“DAP is unable to work with a PAS president like Hadi Awang who persists in such dishonest and dishonourable acts,” Lim said in a statement today.

“As Hadi is the PAS leader in PR, DAP’s decision to end all ties with Hadi will effectively put the PR leadership council in limbo. DAP will meet the PKR leadership to discuss the future course of PR,” he said.
Explaining the party’s reasons for ending ties with Hadi, Lim said he had first, betrayed the collective decision made by the PR leadership council on the nomination of PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail last year as the sole candidate as the new Selangor menteri besar after Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim was sacked from PKR.

Lim said Hadi’s betrayal, by unilaterally nominating three PAS assemblymen instead, had “resulted in a full-blown and protracted crisis” that threatened to bring down the PR Selangor government.

Hadi had also failed to honour his own words at the leadership council meeting on February 8, where it was agreed that Kelantan PAS’s hudud bill to amend the state’s Shariah Criminal Code Enactment II (1993) would first be discussed by all three PR party leaders, before it was tabled in the legislative assembly.

And third, Lim said Hadi had gone ahead to submit a private member’s bill on March 18 to Parliament without presenting it first to the PAS central committee and to the PR leadership council.

Lim said these actions showed that Hadi was “cooperating with Umno to violate this spirit of consensus as well as the common policy framework”, actions which he said jeopardised the opposition pact.

Affirming DAP’s commitment to PR, Lim also stressed that the party’s 37 federal lawmakers would oppose Hadi’s private member’s bill should it be raised in Parliament.

Lim also reminded Prime Minister Datuk Seri Naji Razak to make a clear stand whether Barisan Nasional (BN) opposed or supported Kelantan’s hudud enactment, and whether the prime minister supported Hadi’s private member’s bill.

The DAP leader said it was Umno who had instigated PAS to push for hudud law in Kelantan by promising federal government support.

The Kelantan legislature unanimously passed the amendments to the state’s hudud enactment on March 19.

DAP and PKR cried foul, saying the amendments were more than just a few changes as PAS initially promised, and were in fact a new law.

Lim said Najib must also explain why Umno’s 12 assemblymen in the Kelantan assembly had voted in support of hudud.

PAS’s insistence on hudud almost became a catalyst for PR to split but some have said that breaking up the opposition would only serve BN’s agenda. – March 24, 2015.


How is that possible, to recluse Hadi but continue to work with PAS?

Hadi is a democratically elected PAS President and the last time anyone checked, he had grassroots support amongst PAS members across the nation.

This is politics par excellence because it is a really lame mime act, to be dramatised in the next act of a dying thread of political play which should have stopped the day the curtain was raised.

The fact still remain that the Opposition Coalition is cracking into splinters but some leaders are trying to Uhu-it, so that it remained to be perceived as ‘intact’ amongst the anti-BN hopefuls and aspirants.

The Chinese Chauvinist DAP like it or not is still very much dependent on PAS to canvass for Malay support and votes, especially in seats like Gelang Patah.

Especially now that PKR is already deadish after the migration and expulsion of strategic leaders such as Khalid Ibrahim, Ezam Md Noor, Lokman Noor Adam, Zainur Zakaria, Salehuddin Hashim and many others who through the past 15 years abandoned the futile struggle based purely on one’s personal problems and desires. Most importantly, now the Anwar Ibrahim being incarcerated.

The 21 Dewan Rakyat seats held by PAS is still substantial even though DAP is holding 38 seats. This because DAP have limited number of constituency left to venture into, since they have already got all the Chinese majority and most of the mixed-ethnic seats.

Singling the tree out of the woods is about Chinese Chauvinist DAP leaders hoodwinking the Non Malays, especially the Chinese who are very uneasy with the unanimous newly enacted Hudud Law in Kelantan.

  1. They don’t want to work with Hadi but will try to work with Mat Sabu. Because they can kelentong the fellow who has been kelentong-ed into saying that communist terrorist Mat Indera who killed Policemen and burnt the Bukit Kepong (Muar) Police Station as a hero.

    Note that subversive, previously ISA-ed Lim Kit Siang has sympathies for communists – he called for communist terrorist leader Chin Peng be allowed to enter Malaysia. Good that the Government didn’t allow even his ashes to be brought into the country.

  2. Basiccly, DAP call Hj Hadi a munafik. Can PAS accept it? Their president a munafik?

  3. DAP has to stay in Pakatan. At the least, continue to ride the PKR-driven bus. Because they want the Malay votes. Been known as anti-Malay and anti-Islam since their party formation and causing the race riots of 13 May 1969.

    They tried very hard to attract Malays. The Dyana Sofya girl as DAP candidate was rejected by the voters at PRK Teluk Intan. The anti-Malay stigma is so strong that DAP will never be perceived by the Malays as anything else but that.

    They still are hoping to ride the bus together with PAS. Said they don’t want to work with Hadi but not with PAS. But I think PAS Veep already said that that was tantamount to breaking away with PAS. Of course many people say it’s DAP who should break away from Pakatan. Including me.


  4. How is that possible, to recluse Hadi but continue to work with PAS?

    Possible, by trying to get what they want through Mat Sabu. It’s called subverting, sabotaging and creating chaos and disorder in PAS.

    Cannot? They can certainly try. Succeed or not, we’ll see at the coming June PAS Muktamar.

    But I think the Ulama group is getting stronger. Especially now that Dr Haron Din is the new Murshidur Am after Nik Aziz died. More and more PAS members are mature, no longer taken by cheap and simplistic politic as associating votes with Neraka. And giving 10,000 acres of Kelantan State land to DAP Perak Nga and Ngeh for their support to Mohd Nizar becoming Perak MB Sakejap in 2008.

    And less of the kartun-ism displayed by Mat Sabu equating communists with heroism. And the waning support for the Anwaristas because Anwar is now in prison for 5 years.

  5. PKR Azmin has just said Hadi has to face the PR Council, Hadi must be allowed to explain himself, there is a need to know why Hadi made his decision unilaterally and not based on consensus. Menyindir Hadi tak consult PAS cttee, ke, Min?

    Is Azmin showing gratitude to PAS for supporting him over Wan Azizah in the Selangor MB candidacy some time back?

    “Hadi must be present at the Pakatan Rakyat Presidential Council to explain the issues that were addressed by the DAP committee and PKR before this,” said Azmin, the Selangor menteri besar.

    But would Hadi attend a PR Council now that Anwar is in prison? He did not for 6 moths even when Anwar was around. And when Anwar and Kit Sinag met him, it was at PAS HQ, out of convenience that Hadi was having a PAS meeting there, adat Melayu orang datang ke rumah, layan sikit le. And nothing was agreed during the 1 hour smiling and smiling.

    And is there a PR Presidential Council any more these days?

    “I believe the PAS leadership will also engage Hadi to see how we can overcome this problem,” said Azmin. But who to engage? DAP has taken a confrontational – more correctly, a tak mau cakap with Hadi – stand. PKR not clear who to lead. Hadi won’t see Wan Aziziah’s face, Azmin … kot takut PKR members accuse him of usurping Wan Azizah’s role.

    Me? Anything cah keting. Kasi pasak kuat kuat. The words batu api have been there for thousands of years, hehe.

  6. DAP fortunes may be ending soon.

    Karpal and Nik Aziz had passed on. LKY, their sifu has also left to answer to his maker.

    Peliwat tua, the glue that gelled this marriage of convenience has been safely put behind bars.

    In terms of ability, Kit Siang and Tokong can only bark all night long and day time too. No initiatives of merit has been put forth by this nepotic pair.

    UMNO is blessed by this golden situation but with a weak leader, this opportunity will be lost.

    • Agreed. Now they are talking about the guilty-of-politik-wang Ketua Pemuda about his anak kecik. Apa daaaaaaaaaa.

      I note that the High Court recently decided that the word stupid is not defamatory. But not sure of the context, so will not accuse them so … not yet.
