DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang said this was because PAS represents the third and smallest political party in the proposed coalition.
As Nizar's appointment has not received the mandate of the CEC, DAP Perak assemblymen will stay away from the swearing-in ceremony for Perak Mentri Besar scheduled Thursday, he said in a statement.
“The DAP CEC has given approval for the formation of a Perak coalition government headed by DAP or PKR but not by PAS."
Lim said DAP leaders, members and supporters are shocked at the decision to appoint a PAS assemblyman as Perak MB.
“DAP is prepared to accept DAP chairman and assemblyman for Sitiawan Ngeh Koo Ham or PKR Behrang assemblyman Jamaluddin Mohd Radzi as Perak Mentri Besar," he said.
Sigh sigh sigh.
Because the DAP is still playing race politics?
Let me remind the DAP and the rest of the Opposition parties that not all who voted for you guys love you. The angry votes out there were of those who simply rejected the Barisan Nasional.
The Ali's and the Minah's voted for DAP's candidates, most of whom are Chinese. And yes, the Wongs and the Lims voted for PAS candidates.
Malaysians did not care about race or what colour their candidates were -- they voted for a better Malaysia. At least they thought they did.
They wanted to give a chance to the devil that they do not know to better run the country. I mean, the state.
So, now, Mr Lim Kit Siang. What in heaven's name do you think you're doing? What were you thinking?
Give the whole deal a chance, man!
