It’s legit. Tun is now officially leader of the opposition pact.
The nonagenarian is forming a new party, and his party will team up with DAP to fight Umno in the next general election.
When Lim Guan Eng got into trouble – and Bungalow-gate is actually only his own personal problem – he tried to drag the whole Chinese community into the imbroglio.
Likewise, a little earlier when DAP backed some Christians on the use of ‘Allah’, and some Muslims retaliated, again the evangelical party tried to drag all the non-Muslims into their religious conflict.
The reality is that when decent Malaysians are revolted by the DAP, they’re merely anti-DAP. It does not mean that they’re anti-Chinese. (Or anti-Christian.) (more…)
Hew Kuan Yau is a DAP veteran leader. Back in 1999, Hew had been put up as the DAP’s general election candidate in a Petaling Jaya state seat.
More than a dozen years ago, he already held the high-ranking post of pol-sec to Kerk Kim Hock, the then interim party sec-gen.
And Hew was made director of DAP’s campaign in the last general election. (more…)
David Nga Kor Ming – one seat away from Tun’s left in the photo below – has first dibs. (more…)
Umno Youth exco Armand Azha (pix below) rudely throwing prayer paraphernalia for the departed that are used in Taoist funeral rites. (more…)
Make no mistake. The movers and shakers in DAP are evangelical Christians, and its top leadership comprises evangelistas.
This little detail was realised by PAS after seven years of up close and personal in tahaluf siyasi. See, ‘Dewan Ulama PAS: Cina DAP rata-rata Kristian, lawan hukum Allah‘ (more…)
The idea of a snap poll had been discussed, admitted both Penang’s deputy chief ministers when contacted by the Malay Mail.
MMO Penang senior correspondent Opalyn Mok today reported the option of calling a state election was deliberated as a test vote of confidence on the Pakatan coalition. See ‘Penang mulls snap polls as referendum on Guan Eng charges‘
What’s more interesting in Mok’s story, however, is the view expressed by James Chin that “an early election would likely see DAP score a stunning victory”.
