The 95% That PAS And DAP Are In Agreement Are Embodied In The PR Manifesto(Buku Jingga) And Common Policy.(en/cn)

Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 30.4.2013.

The 95% That PAS And DAP Are In Agreement Are Embodied In The PR Manifesto(Buku Jingga) And Common Policy.

DAP reminds its leaders and members to be extremely cautious when speaking to the MCA-controlled Star when in its report today, the Star can even distort and lie about a written joint statement by both PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang and myself. We had stated in our statement yesterday that both DAP and PAS are 95% in agreement on common principles and policies that benefit the people.

This 95% that both PAS and DAP are in agreement are embodied in the PR Manifesto(Buku Jingga) and Common Policy. However Star reported that both DAP and PAS are only 95% in agreement with the PR Manifesto. This is untrue as both DAP and PAS are 100% fully supportive of the PR manifesto.

It is mischievous of The Star to lie that PAS and DAP are “95% in agreement” on the Opposition manifesto that they had agreed to, together with the PKR. What we had agreed on in the PR manifesto is supported fully 100% by all three parties in PR.

The “5% difference” between both DAP and PAS are not included in the PR manifesto. Instead the 5% differences are set aside as individual position and principle of respective parties but not of PR. As stated in the joint statement PAS has the democratic right, on its own, to champion Islam and the concept of an Islamic state. On the other hand, the DAP champions the democratic concept of the Malaysia Constitution of justice for all, which is opposed to the hudud and Islamic state. Whilst hudud and Islamic state is the position of PAS, PAS leaders have publicly acknowledged that this is not PR’s position.

Both DAP and PAS has agreed to disagree on the differences and chosen to focus on the 95% common understanding to fight for freedom, fairness, truth, integrity and democracy for all. This position on PR has been endorsed unanimously by DAP leaders and members to fight the common opponent in BN. For any DAP party leader and member to stray from this party position is deliberately playing along with the BN to paralyse and sabotage PR efforts to win the coming general elections.

民主行动党秘书长林冠英于2013年4月30日在吉隆坡发表的声明:

伊斯兰党及行动党具有共同原则及政策的95%意见,经已体现在民联的竞选宣言(也即是橙皮书内)。

民主行动党在此提醒所有的领袖及党员,在对马华所控制的英文《星报》发言时,需格外慎言。今天的《星报》,甚至可以歪曲伊斯兰党主席哈迪阿旺和我的联合书面声明,并在报导撒谎。我们经在联合声明中说明:行动党与伊斯兰党在基本原则和惠民政策方面,达致95%的共同点。

伊斯兰党与行动党具有共同原则及政策的95%意见,经已体现在民联的竞选宣言(也即是橙皮书内)。然而,《星报》却报导,行动党及伊斯兰党只在民联竞选宣言中达致95%的协议。这是不正确的。因为行动党及伊斯兰党是100%支持民联的竞选宣言。

《星报》谎称伊斯兰党及行动党在联同公正党在内的反对阵线已同意的竞选宣言中“只有95%的协议”,是一项极大的恶作剧。我们在民联竞选宣言中所同意的事项,都是获各民联三党100%同意的。

而行动党与伊斯兰党两党之间所存有的仅仅“5% 不同意见”,并没有纳入民联的竞选宣言内。这5%的不同意见,被列为各政党的立场及原则,而不是民联的共同原则和立场。诚如在联合声明中所说,伊斯兰党有权自己争取伊期兰国概念,而另一边厢,行动党也有权力要求一个有正义、具宪法制度的民主国家,也就是反对实施伊斯兰法及成立伊斯兰国。虽然伊斯兰法及成立伊斯兰国是伊斯兰党的立场,但该党领袖也公开承认这并不是民联的立场。

行动党及伊斯兰党在异中求同,选择集中在达致协议的95%共同目标,为人民争取自由、公正、真理、廉正和民主。这项民联的立场,获得行动党领袖及党员的一致认可,以打倒我们的共同敌人国阵。任何行动党领袖或党员若偏离党的这个立场,是故意与国阵一起玩弄课题,以破坏民联、让民联赢取本届大选的努力瘫痪。

林冠英
