DAP will support Anwar

KUALA LUMPUR, 9 Feb 2009: DAP will continue to support Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as the Opposition Leader, DAP secterary-general Lim Guan Eng said.

He said Anwar would remain as Pakatan Rakyat leader and as Opposition Leader as agreed by the PKR-PAS-DAP leaderships.

“He will remain, as no single leader has ever questioned this during internal meetings whether at the highest level or otherwise,” he said in a statement here, today.

He said Pakatan Rakyat had endorsed a position that no individual party policy could be regarded a Pakatan policy unless it was approved unanimously by all three parties.

He also appealed to DAP national chairperson Karpal Singh to use internal party channels if he wished to change policies within Pakatan Rakyat instead of using the media.

Yesterday, Karpal told a news conference that Anwar was not fit to lead the Pakatan Rakyat and that he had been “nothing but trouble” for the opposition alliance.

His remarks came in the wake of the Pakatan Rakyat losing the Perak state government to the Barisan Nasional (BN) on Friday.

Karpal said that happened because of Anwar himself had sought defectors from the BN to shore up the Pakatan Rakyat. — Bernama

    Now look who is talking.

    The secretary-general defies his own chairman and supports the advisor of ANOTHER party … Why? Power changes everybody. Even the formidable Lim Kit Siang and his dear son. The Son wants to cling onto his Chief Minister post and his Dad harbours hopes of becoming a Deputy Prime Minister? So Karpal had his kapal sunk by this father and son. Except for the chairman who sticks to his principles, it seems the Lims prefer power and greed. By supporting Hudud, other people’s advisor and frogs.

    Karpal is a legal legend not just here in Malaysia. Check out Jamaican reggae singer Pluto Shervington’s 80s hit “Your Honour” on Youtube at 2:40 out of a 3:59 clip.

    He pleads with Karpal not to leave him here to wonder why the court has made this blunder.

    It’s quite funny.
