KUCHING, September 19: Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) president Tan Sri James Masing said that the Democratic Action Party (DAP)’s political arrogance was not the ingredient to political stability in a multiracial nation.
Masing said that DAP seemed to have a selective and short memory, citing that during the Pakatan Harapan (PH) government’s 22-month tenure, Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah), which is an Islamic party, was in the coalition together with DAP.
“The Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) did not accuse DAP of gladly consorting with an Islamic based party, such as Amanah, when they needed them to hold power.
“To GPS, the stability of the government is of prime importance, and Parti Islam SeMalaysia (PAS) shares that vision,” he said.
Masing was commenting on an article that was published in an online portal on September 3, with the title “Too late for GPS to distance itself from PAS”.
Masing also said that GPS has previously refused DAP for wanting to share the power, and in fact, that was the reason why the PH coalition did not last very long.
“DAP is not a good listener to outside inputs, and until they change, DAP will be made irrelevant soon,” added Masing.—DayakDaily.
