DAP reaffirms Pakatan's stand on hudud

PETALING JAYA: Pakatan Rakyat’s (PR) stand against hudud remains, as the DAP does not support its implementation, party secretary-general Lim Guan Eng (pic) said on Monday.

“Under PR, there must be consensus by all three parties on policy matters.

“As DAP does not support the implementation of the hudud, the issue of PR supporting the hudud does not arise,” Lim said in a statement.

He added that neither PR’s common policy platform nor it’s general election manifestos in the past two terms included the implementation of hudud or the forming of an Islamic state.

“All the component parties can adhere to their respective objectives within the democratic framework.

“However focus and priority should be on PR’s common policies that have been agreed to by all three parties such as fighting corruption, pursuing good governance establishing rule of law and justice, ensuring that economic prosperity can be shared equitably with the people and not enjoyed only by the cronies,” Lim said.

He also said that the coalition’s stand was reaffirmed by Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim when questioned about an online portal’s report claiming that the latter had said that hudud must first be understood before PR could support the Kelantan government’s plans.
