PAS Has To State Whether They Support UMNO’s Position In Giving Unconditional Support To Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim To Continue As Selangor Menteri Besar.(en/cn)

Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 12.8.2014.

August 17th’s PAS central leadership meeting has often been cited as the decisive date for the fate and future of Pakatan Rakyat that comprises PAS, DAP and PKR. If PAS refuses to endorse a change of the Selangor Menteri Besar, by replacing Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim with PKR’s choice of PKR President Datuk Seri Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, this will immediately lead to a break-up and end of PR both in Selangor and nationally.

However PAS can no longer wait until 17 August following the statement by Deputy UMNO President Tan Sri Muhyidin Yassin, that UMNO’s 12 Assemblymen will give full and unconditional support to Khalid to continue as Menteri Besar. Instead PAS has to immediately state whether they support UMNO’s position in giving unconditional support to Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim to continue as Selangor Menteri Besar.

UMNO’s 12 Assemblymen does not constitute a majority in the 56 person Selangor State Assembly. Only with PAS’ 15 ADUNs together with Tan Sri Khalid himelf, do we have a political stalemate of pro-Tan Sri Khalid and anti-Tan Sri Khalid supporters each having 28 Aseemblypersons.

Any delay in making this declaration is unacceptable because it does not measure up to responsibility of the mandate of Selangor voters who returned 15 PAS ADUNs in the 2013 general elections. Can PAS 15 ADUNs say that they are together or not with UMNO in supporting Tan Sri Khalid as Selangor Menteri Besar?

If PAS says that they are not together with UMNO, this will help to clarify that PAS agrees with replacing Khalid as Selangor Menteri Besar but wishes to wait until 17 August 2014 to decide whether to endorse PKR’s choice of replacement. Failure by PAS to provide clarity will only further erode PR popular support and damage voters’ confidence not only in Selangor but also nationally.

民主行动党秘书长林冠英于2014年8月12日发表声明:

伊斯兰党必须阐明,他们是否支持巫统的立场,无条件支持丹斯里卡立依布拉欣继续担任雪州大臣

8月17日的伊斯兰党中委会被视为关键的一天,它将决定民联的命运及未来。如果伊斯兰党拒绝同意撤换雪州大臣,由公正党选出的党主席拿督斯里旺阿兹莎,出任大臣、取代卡立,这将会立即导致雪州甚至全国民联的分裂及瓦解。

但是,随着副首相丹斯里慕尤丁表明巫统12名州议员将全面、无条件支持卡立继续担任州务大臣, 伊斯兰党不能等到8月17日才做决定了。反之,伊斯兰党应该马上阐明,他们是否支持巫统的立场,无条件支持丹斯里卡立依不拉欣继继担任雪州大臣。

巫统的12名州议员在雪州议会56个议席中不是大多数。只有联合伊斯兰党15名州议员及卡立本身,我们才会出现政治僵局:即亲卡立阵营及反卡立阵营各占28个议席的局面。

他们迟迟不表态,是不能被接受的,也是不负责任的做法,因为他们辜负了2013年全国大选雪州选民对15个伊斯兰党州议员的委托及期望。这15个伊斯兰党议员可不可以告诉我们,他们是不是与巫统一伙,支持卡立担任雪州大臣?

如果伊斯兰党表明他们并不是与巫统一伙,这将表示伊斯兰党其实也同意撤换雪州大臣卡立,但是他们需等到2014年8月17日来决定是否接受公正党的新大臣人选。伊斯兰党如果不澄清,将进一步破坏及打击雪州甚至全国民联的支持率及选民的信心。

林冠英
