‘Obsolete strategy to claim DAP is riding on Amanah’s back’

 | June 7, 2016

Amanah Communications Director Khalid Abdul Samad points out that this same strategy was previously used against PAS.


SUNGAI BESAR: A state-owned television station that frequently portrays Amanah as DAP’s “yes man” is using an obsolete strategy.

Amanah Communications Director Khalid Abdul Samad said this same strategy was previously used against PAS.

He said after the Islamist party no longer became a threat to BN, the station was now using it against Amanah.

“Pakatan Harapan (PH) strongly condemns the heinous allegations that say ‘after being satisfied riding on PAS’ back, DAP is now riding on Amanah’s’ in the Sungai Besar and Kuala Kangsar by-elections,” he told reporters here today.

He said the two by-elections proved that none of the parties dominated PH. In fact, it proves that the three parties are ready to talk and negotiate openly and honestly to reach a consensus.

“Everyone knows that from the outset Amanah has wanted to compete in these two by-elections.

“However, with the approval of PH, attempts to negotiate with PAS were being done by several PKR leaders. In this situation, Amanah abided by the decision.

“After trying for so long, it was proven that PAS is no longer willing to negotiate.

“So the decision was made to discontinue efforts in coming to an agreement with them.
“PKR leaders agreed to this and decided to field Amanah as the representative for PH.”

The Shah Alam MP pointed out that disagreements were a common thing in PH.

“But it is handled through a mature discussion process.

“The question of domination and being the boss is not PH’s culture, but it is obviously the culture of Umno and BN.”
