PENANG — Penang Gerakan Youth chief Hng Chee Wey said the formation of the new political alliance, Pakatan Harapan, should pave the way for the dissolution of the Pakatan-Rakyat-led Selangor state government.
Hng said if there was no resolution, it meant that the Pakatan Rakyat comprising PAS, DAP and PKR is still intact and in essence, they are still working as “bedroom” partners in a coalition state government.
In a statement, Hng also urged the non-Muslims not to easily be taken in by the commitment undertaken by Pakatan Harapan.
“Apparently all the three component parties of Pakatan Harapan, namely DAP, PKR and the new Parti Amanah Nasiona (PAN) have not reached a consensus and common stand on the implementation of Hudud Law. Also, both PKR & PAN have reserved room for future political alliance with PAS,” he said.
Hng said DAP had not stood firm that they would not work together with PAS again, meaning Pakatan Rakyat and Pakatan Harapan are the same, with PAS as the playmaker.
Hng also questioned the presence of the so-called NGO “Bersih” at the meeting to announce the formation of Pakatan Harapan.
“Does the presence of Dato S. Ambiga imply that Bersih has subscribed to the political cause of Pakatan Harapan and is prepared to work with the opposition political alliance to topple the incumbent democratically elected government?”
“By attending the round table meeting of Pakatan Harapan, Ambiga has pawned the aspiration and wishes of the people to pursue the campaign of Bersih which purportedly pursues the “Clean General Election”, motto. Is Bersih a satellite organization of the Opposition Camp, working as an NGO in disguise?”
Hng quoted an example when DAP member Wong Tack led a civil movement called “Green Movement” in disguise in an attempt to boost his image. Later, Wong’s true identity was revealed when he stood as a candidate in Bentong, Pahang, under a DAP ticket in the 2013 General Elections.
Similarly, Hng said, Ambiga may be preparing the stage to be an Opposition candidate in the next general election.
Hence, Hng hoped that the non-Muslims voters would give serious thought on the integrity and the ideology of certain leaders using the Bersih umbrella.
