Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 2.6.2016.

The Drama (Sandiwara) Of MIC, Gerakan Or MCA’s Quit Threats Cannot Cover Up Their Complete Irrelevance And UMNO’s Contempt For MCA In Failing To Even Inform MCA That BN Will Be Facilitating And Prioritising PAS Hudud Bill To Be Tabled In Parliament.

The drama(sandiwara) of MIC, Gerakan or MCA’s quit threats cannot cover up their complete irrelevance and UMNO’s contempt for MCA in failing to even inform MCA that BN will be facilitating and prioritising PAS President Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang’s hudud bill to be tabled in Parliament. UMNO’s contempt of MCA that they are completely irrelevant is demonstrated by MCA Minister Datuk Seri Ong Ka Chuan complaining that Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi had asked the Cabinet about Hadi’s hudud bill and that the Cabinet had disagreed with the idea.

What is worse is that MCA did not dare to protest when BN reneged on the disagreement by Cabinet, when BN supported Hadi’s hudud bill without informing MCA, Gerakan or MIC. Two Cabinet meetings have elapsed since Hadi’s hudud bill was tabled in Parliament last week with the support of UMNO Ministers. However MIC, Gerakan or MCA’s complaints that they were not even informed were never addressed. Clearly none of the MCA, MIC or Gerakan Ministers dare to protest this betrayal at the two subsequent Cabinet meetings.

No wonder UMNO had challenged MCA, Gerakan or MIC not to make quit threats but instead make good the threats by quitting immediately and not later. The announcement of quitting MCA last Friday by Kedah MCA deputy chairman and state EXCO member Datuk Dr Leong Yong Kong, to protest against UMNO’s support for Hadi’s hudud bill and then his subsequent retraction of quitting MCA yesterday, only highlights the drama(sandiwara) of MCA leaders. Despite MCA being played out and betrayed by BN, MCA continues to remain in BN to desperately cling on to their Ministerial posts.

UMNO supporters is derisive of MCA’s quit threats and is now challenging MCA to leave and resign from BN and their Ministerial posts immediately because MCA will never do so just like Datuk Dr Leong Yeong Kong. MCA, MIC and Gerakan leaders’ quit threats will never happen and they will find an excuse, just like rejoining government again despite promising not to rejoin Cabinet and government if they perform badly in the 13th general elections.

To distract attention for their unprincipled actions, MCA had tried to shift the blame to DAP by calling us to leave the Selangor state government. Why should DAP leave the Selangor state government when the Selangor State government did not table any hudud bill? It is BN that facilitated and prioritised Hadi’s hudud bill in Parliament and MCA should leave BN immediately to prove their principled stand of opposing Hadi’s hudud bill.

MCA should emulate the consistency and principled stand of DAP on hudud. DAP had cut off all contacts and ties with Hadi when we realised that Hadi was intent on breaking his promises to Pakatan Rakyat and committed to pushing the hudud bill.

DAP wishes to reiterate that we do not oppose Islam, but oppose the hudud bill by Hadi because it is against the Federal Constitution. We cannot have one country two systems. Further, any changes of syariah court powers can not be by ordinary law that requires a simple majority to be passed, but must be through a constitutional amendment requiring a 2/3 majority. For this reason BN should be condemned for not only betraying their own promises and principles but also the Federal Constitution.

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英于2016年6月2日在吉隆坡发表的声明:

由印度国大党、民政党或马华公会主导的“呈辞威胁论”作秀大戏,并无法掩盖这三党的无能;更无法掩盖巫统蔑视马华的存在,导致马华完全不知道国阵会在国会,让伊斯兰党的伊邢法私人法案爬头。

由印度国大党、民政党或马华公会主导的“呈辞威胁论”作秀大戏,并无法掩盖这三党的无能;更无法掩盖巫统蔑视马华的存在,导致马华完全不知道国阵会在国会,让伊斯兰党主席拿督斯里哈迪阿旺的伊刑法私人法案爬头。巫统蔑视马华、无视马华存在一事,马华部长拿督斯里黄家泉也证实及投诉副首相拿督斯里阿末扎希曾经在内阁会议中,询问阁员有关伊斯兰刑事法一事,而内阁成员也不同意有关的想法。

更糟糕的是,当国阵在没有预先知会马华、民政或国大党,而支持伊斯兰党哈迪阿旺的伊邢法私人法案爬头时,马华在巫统食言、没有遵从内阁不同意的意愿后,一点也不敢抗议。自哈迪的伊邢法私人法案在国会提呈并获得巫统的支持之后,内阁已经有两次的会议,然而,印度国大党、民政或马华投诉指他们未被告知一事,也没有在会议上提起。很明显的,完全没有一个马华、国大党或民政党的部长敢在接下来的2次内阁会议上,提出被背叛的抗议。

难怪巫统挑战马华、民政、或国大党不必劳师动众的威胁要辞职,干脆直接现在辞职而不是之后。上周五马华吉打州副主席及州行政议员拿督梁荣光宣布退出马华以抗议巫统支持哈迪的伊刑法,然而昨天他又收回他退党的决定,这只会让人看到马华很明显在作秀。马华无视于被国阵背叛,仍继续留在国阵一切只是为了谋求他们的部长职位。

巫统支持者不只嘲笑马华的辞职威胁,还直接挑战马华立刻辞掉他们的部长职位及退出国阵,因为就像拿督梁荣光一样,到最后马华根本不会这么做。马华、国大党及民政党领袖辞职的威胁将不会发生,他们会向第13届大选前承诺若大选惨败将不入内阁一样出尔反尔,诸多借口食言。

为了转移视线,不让人注意到他们没有原则的举动,马华曾经怪罪行动党,叫我们退出雪兰莪州政府。雪州政府并没有提呈任何伊刑法法案,为什么行动党要退出雪州政府? 现在是国阵让哈迪的伊刑法法案优先在国会提呈,马华才应该马上退过国阵,以证明他们反对哈迪伊刑法的原则立场。

马华应该仿效行动党的坚定立场与原则,始终反对伊刑法。行动党在发现哈迪有意背弃信义、背叛民联、决意推动伊刑法时,已经与哈迪断决一切联系及往来。

行动党重申,我们不是反对伊斯兰,而是反对哈迪提呈伊刑法法案,因为它与联邦宪法相违。我们不能让一个国家拥有两种制度。再说,伊斯兰法庭的任何权力若有变动,不是通过半数赞同票,而必须通过三分之二国会议员赞同修宪通过。为此,国阵应该被谴责,他们不仅背叛自己的承诺与原则,也背叛了联邦宪法。
