KLANG, May 20 (Bernama) -- MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek has
asked PAS Spiritual Leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat whether he had sought
the agreement of his opposition coalition partners, namely Parti Keadilan Rakyat
and DAP, to hold talks with Umno.
He understood the opposition coalition had a resolution whereby, any policy
which was not unanimously agreed upon, could not be a policy of the coalition.
"So, I want to ask him whether he had obtained the agreement of DAP and
Keadilan...if not, we cannot hold to what had been declared by the opposition
"They will keep changing, with the hope of garnering support from the
people," he said at a meeting with non-governmental organisations here today.
If there were no agreement from DAP and Parti Keadilan Rakyat, Dr Chua asked
whether the outcome of the talk between PAS and Umno would be accepted by other
members of the opposition coalition.
On DAP, he said it was more dependent on Chinese votes although it claimed
to be a multi-racial party.
"DAP likes to criticise Umno and Barisan Nasional on issues affecting the
country, including those started by DAP. In the end, we find there is no DAP
candidate who dares to take on Umno," added the MCA president.
Therefore, Dr Chua hoped the people would take heed of the advice from
former DAP vice-chairman Tunku Abdul Aziz Tunku Ibrahim -- who recently quit the
opposition party -- that the transformation by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib
Tun Razak was better than a demonstration.
