Unite To Stop Ge15 Plan Of Court Cluster Says Dap Man
Liew Chin Tong said in order to prevent a comeback of Umno’s ‘court cluster’, all those opposed must come together or risk seeing the nation spiral downwards.PETALING JAYA: Johor DAP chief Liew Chin Tong has called on all political forces against Umno’s “court cluster” to immediately set fair rules ahead of the looming general election (GE15).
The state opposition leader said all responsible political actors should come to a consensus as to what constitutes fair play when contesting in GE15 rather than allowing this “court cluster” to set the pace and potentially regain power in the federal government.
“We don’t have to allow a general election to happen according to the court cluster’s ‘get-out-of-jail’ timetable.
“All political actors and voters should find ways to foil this cluster’s schedule.
“What is most important now is for all political forces against this cluster, including Umno leaders who do not wish to see the return of Najib Razak and Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, to work out a set of democratic rules to ensure fair elections and fair processes governing the formation of the government on election night,” he said on Facebook.
The “court cluster” refers to prominent Umno leaders, including the party’s president Zahid, and former prime minister Najib, who are either on trial or have been convicted on charges such as criminal breach of trust, abuse of power and money laundering.
Zahid and Najib have been among those calling for GE15 to be held soon after Umno and Barisan Nasional’s (BN) convincing wins in the recent Johor and Melaka state elections.
Liew said in order to prevent a comeback of this “court cluster”, all those opposed must come together or risk seeing the nation spiral downwards.
“Given the bad blood in the past, dwelling on whether or not Pakatan Harapan should work with Perikatan Nasional during the general election gets us nowhere.
“We are now in a situation where no one is fully dominant. Umno no longer has the command of all state apparatus.
“For instance, its arch-rival Bersatu holds the powerful home ministry portfolio,” he said, adding that the lack of dominance by one party or coalition could be used to pass more legislation, other than the anti-hopping bill.
Liew said there was no guarantee that Umno-BN would form the next government and there remained hope democratic rules fair to all could be formulated. - FMT
