KUALA LUMPUR: DAP will not budge from its stance against hudud which PAS advocates, said DAP acting chairman Tan Kok Wai.
“Our position on hudud remains unchanged. DAP is not changing its stand and it will not change,” he said at a press conference here yesterday.
He was commenting on the move by PAS to table a Private Member’s Bill when Parliament reconvenes in June to pave the way for syariah laws, which provide for hudud capital punishment, to be enforced in Kelantan.
On Monday, DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng had stated in his blog that hudud was never part of Pakatan Rakyat’s common policy framework.
On another matter, Tan said a memorial service for the late DAP stalwart Karpal Singh would be held at the Kuala Lumpur and Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall here at 8pm today.
This follows the rejection by the Education Ministry for the memorial to be held at SRJK (C) Chung Kwo here.
Meanwhile, DAP national organising secretary Anthony Loke said the late Karpal’s stance against hudud was also the party’s stand on the issue.
“There should be no issue about this or any misunderstanding that DAP’s stance is different from that of Karpal’s,” he said.
