KUCHING, Nov 22: Describing the fevered horse trading in the aftermath of the 15th General Election (GE15) as “political prostitution” which has thwarted democracy, Parti Bumi Kenyalang (PBK) asserts that the true colours of Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS), Democratic Action Party (DAP) and Parti Islam Se-Malaysia (PAS) have now been “laid bare”.
“The just concluded elections are a ‘political prostitution’ of democracy. It makes democracy no longer a sacred process to elect politicians and political parties to run the country.
“Citizens now see politicians as ‘prostitutes’ sleeping with whom they can freely choose once elected. They keep not their words with whom they would not ‘sleep’ with.
“After elections are over, the true colours of Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS), Democratic Action Party (DAP) and Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS) are now laid bare,” said PBK president Voon Lee Shan in a statement today.
He said the possibility of collaborating with Perikatan Nasional (PN) which has PAS in the coalition, to form the federal government, is of concern among Christians in Sarawak.
“GPS’ intention of collaborating with PAS failed to see the sensitivity of the matter among Sarawakians of which 62 per cent are Christians.
“Putting PAS into power will nullify GPS’ slogan of ‘Sarawak First’, that is, protecting Sarawak as a secular state where all races live in harmony and where citizens are respecting each other,” Voon said.
“Both GPS and DAP should know that to work with Muhyiddin Yassin is not a wise choice in a multiracial and multi-religious society.”
Voon also said DAP should not be forgiven too because during the campaign, DAP was critical of United Malays National Organisation (Umno) and its president Dato Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.
“How could DAP work with Umno whom DAP considered as the party that caused much problems in Malaysia since Malaysia came into existence?”
He asserted that Sarawak DAP now owes an explanation to Sarawakians who voted for them during the elections as Pakatan Harapan (PH) has the intention to work with Umno.
“Are you only interested in power, but not the welfare of Sarawakians?” Voon asked. — DayakDaily
