COMMENT: DAP together with Pakatan Harapan looks forward to form a formidable front to topple the Barisan Nasional regime.
Announcing the leaders of the Pakatan Harapan Presidential Council “is the first step”, then we will reveal our administration team, as well as manifesto, to show that we are ready to govern.
In the meantime, we are still open to any partner who is sincere and share the same goal to topple BN by joining this alliance. I deem this is the first crucial move to regain public confidence and reignite hope that change is unstoppable. It will be an even stronger team to realize regime change in Malaysia which is so much deserved for.
We are ready to team up and say good bye to an of “disarray and disunity”, and we will continuously convince the people that it would be the best alternative government-in-waiting which would offer “New Deal, New Hope, New Malaysia” for all Malaysians. Rest assured and stay tuned, we will ensure that more positive news to come.
On another note, I take this as a very positive good combination for all the four parties – Amanah, DAP, Parti Keadilan Rakyat and Pribumi – entrusted with the power sharing concept.
DAP has three members listed in the Presidential line-up; Secretary General Lim Guan Eng, Kula Segaran (represent Indian community), and Chong Chieng Jen (representing East Malaysia). We in Sabah DAP are also excited and happy that Chieng Jen, who is a three- term MP as well as DAP National Vice Chairman, to be appointed as a Vice President.
The issue of why there are no Sabah representatives should not be raised up, as it’s too early to make the assumptions.
I know that BN will play up the Divide and Rule tactic again. It’s clear that all the while they claimed that DAP is controlling PH however now they said that DAP is side-lined in the council. It is ridiculous and contradictory.
I would like to assure the public that we will build a stronger and formidable alternative front to face BN in next general election. We will earn people’s trust and support again to make an extraordinary change for this beloved country.
