MY, my, my. How things have changed. As they say the truth will always come out.
When once the Democratic Action Party (DAP) in Sarawak and Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) would proudly declare that they were partners together with Parti Islam Se-Malaysia (PAS) and ready to rule our great State, today the truth of this marriage of (in)convenience has been laid bare for all to see.
In fact, State DAP chairman Chong Chieng Jen has openly declared that the party’s cooperation with PKR in the State is almost zero.
Chong has actually said he could not understand why PKR still wanted to work with PAS in the State.
In fact he has pretty much issued an ultimatum to PKR – dump PAS or we’ll completely sever ties with you.
Huh, isn’t that interesting. There goes Chong issuing ultimatums to PKR when really what right has he?
Well we’ve always known that DAP has always felt itself to be far superior to PKR or PAS in the State. While they might have pretended to give their ‘respects’ to PKR Sarawak chief Baru Bian as the ‘leader’ of the opposition in the State, we knew all along who thought they were calling the shots.
While once they might have acted as if they were pushing for Baru Bian to be the chief minister should PR have won the State election, ultimately DAP would have been the ones calling the shots and bulldozing their agenda through no matter what their ‘partners’ had to say about it.
Now that they have freed themselves from the shackles of a marriage they had no intention of keeping their vows to, they are probably already visualising themselves filling the role of chief minister.
Hey if Lim Guan Eng can why can’t Chong Chien Jen?
The story from Bernama:
Sarawak DAP, PKR cooperation almost zero says state’s DAP chairman
KUCHING, June 7 — Sarawak DAP chairman Chong Chieng Jen said as long as PKR is cooperating with PAS, the cooperation between Sarawak DAP and Sarawak PKR is almost zero.
He said the reason why Sarawak DAP quit the state Pakatan Rakyat (PR) was because despite the PAS policy to pursue on the implementation of hudud law nationwide, Sarawak PKR still wanted to work with PAS.
“The implementation of hudud law has no place in Sarawak,” adding that he could not understand why Sarawak PKR still wanted to work with PAS although this was going against the wishes of the majority of Sarawakians.
For that reason, he said Sarawak DAP had to sever ties with PKR or anyone who was on the same boat with PAS.
“If PKR still has any doubt about it then it should be clear by now. It is also the time for PKR to sever ties with PAS and only then any form of cooperation between DAP and PKR would be possible,” he added. — Bernama
