KUCHING, Oct 24: The one-week ultimatum from Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) Armada to DAP leaders is most unbecoming, immature and counter productive to a united Pakatan Harapan government.
DAP Disciplinary Committee chairman Chong Chieng Jen said the party will not compromise on any act of indiscipline amongst its members.
The party has a high standard of discipline and its own internal procedure to enforce such discipline, he added.
“Whilst we are open for public to lodge a complaint against an act of indiscipline committed by any of our members, we wish to clearly state that no one should dictate the manner and time frame involved for us to discipline our members,” said Chong in a press statement today.
He noted that the committee has received a complaint against Ronnie Liu’s statements “Mahathir: The Paper Tiger” published in Malaysiakini and “Ronnie Liu takes a swipe at Dr M, says Pakatan will still be fine without Bersatu” published on Tuesday (Oct 22).
He said the committee has already started the process to deal with the complaint.
Chong, who is also Sarawak DAP chairman, said the committee has expressed its dismay on the ultimatum issued by (Youth and Sports Minister) Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman and his Armada team, which is most unwarranted and should not be repeated.
“We have all worked hard to win the 14th general elections and form this government not on our own but made possible by the strong people of Malaysia.
“Let’s channel our energy and effort to deliver the reforms which we have promised to make Malaysia a better and stronger country instead of being distracted by indiscipline and immaturity within the Pakatan Harapan coalition,” he said. — DayakDaily
