PR 2013 General Election Manifesto Clearly Does Not Include Implementing Hudud Law On Muslims In Kelantan In Contrast To BN’s Confused Position Of Wanting To Implement Hudud Law When UMNO Is Talking But Opposing Its Implementation When Non-UMNO BN Parties Speak.(en/cn)

Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng And MP For Bagan In Kuala Lumpur On 24.5.2014.

PR 2013 general election manifesto clearly does not include implementing hudud law on Muslims in Kelantan in contrast to BN’s confused position of wanting to implement hudud law when UMNO is talking but opposing its implementation when non-UMNO BN parties speak. Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin is the one that has to explain to the people about BN’s conflicting stand on the hudud problem, when even PAS openly admits that implementing hudud is not in PR 2013 general election manifesto or PR common policy.

DAP had always consistently opposed implementing hudud. In contrast UMNO says BN supports implementing hudud whilst the rest of the BN component parties opposes – Can the real BN on hudud please stand up? Or is this another reminder that only UMNO’s views count and not the non-UMNO BN parties. For this reason, DAP’s parliamentary candidate for Teluk Intan Dyana Sofya is a better person than BN’s Mah Siew Keong in opposing the implementation of hudud because this objective is not in the PR common policy framework.

On the other hand Mah would likely have to toe the UMNO line. As a matter of record, Gerakan has always blindly supported UMNO’s positions on all issues, especially during the voting of bills in Parliament or state assemblies. Mah has even broken his own promise not to contest in elections if he wins the Gerakan Presidency.

Clearly Mah will be no different from former Gerakan President Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon, who had promised not to accept appointment of Senatorship and Ministerial position if he lost in the 2008 general elections. History had proven that the Gerakan Presidents has a history of not keeping their promises.

It is wrong for Muhyiddin to falsely claim that DAP has been silent on this issue when our leaders and our parliamentary candidate has publicly declared their stand. However Muhyidin has been silent on the issue by not daring to declare Mah’s stand on implementing hudud.

民联2013年大选宣言清楚写着没有包括向吉兰丹穆斯林执行伊斯兰刑事法,相反地,国阵当时大选的立场却让人混淆,一方面国阵当时在巫统发言时称要实施伊刑法,同一时间国阵非巫统成员党却对外说反对伊刑法。

民联2013年大选宣言明显没有包括向吉兰丹穆斯林执行伊斯兰刑事法,相反地,国阵当时大选的立场却让人混淆,一方面巫统当时高喊要实施伊刑法,另一方面国阵非巫统成员党却反对伊刑法。副首相丹斯里慕尤丁就是那位必须出面解释当时国阵在伊刑法立场矛盾的人,因为伊斯兰党已经公开承认伊斯法并没有涵盖在民联2013年大选宣言中或在民联共同政策中。

民主行动党一如既往的反对实施伊刑法。相反地,巫统却称国阵支持实施伊刑法,而其他成员党反对,请问国阵到底哪句才是真?或这只是提醒大家,只有巫统的观点才重要,其他非巫统的国阵成员党无关重要。因此,在反对实施伊刑法上,行动党在安顺国会候选人戴安娜是比国阵马袖强更好的人选,因为这个目标并不是在民联共同政策框架中。

另一边厢,马袖强看来只能跟巫统的立场一致,因为据以往的记录,在各议题上,民政党都只会盲目的支持巫统的立场,特别是在国会或州议会各法案的投票上。马袖强甚至违背他曾经承诺一旦胜得民政党主席他将不会在选举中上阵的诺言。

很明显的,马袖强跟民政党前主席丹斯里许子根没两样,许子根也是曾经承诺一旦他2008年大选落败,将不会接受受委为上议员及部长职。历史证明了过往民政党的主席,拥有违背诺言的历史记录。

当行动党众领袖及我们的国会候选人严正公开宣示我们的立场的时候,慕尤丁却错误声称民主行动党对于伊刑法课题保持沉默。无论如何,慕尤丁才是保持沉默不敢说真话的人,他不敢宣示马袖强在实施伊刑法的立场。
