BUKIT MERTAJAM: MCA president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai has reminded the 16,000 Chinese voters here that a vote for PKR is a vote for PAS’ hudud.
“They need to know that PAS, PKR and DAP have conveniently worked together for this by-election,” he said yesterday.
“They were at odds over the hudud issue earlier. The rakyat should reject this sort of partnership.
“A vote for PKR is seen as an endorsement for the implementation of hudud,” he added.
Liow also expressed concern about Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail’s time, whether she could give her undivided attention to the constituents if she were to win the Permatang Pauh by-election.
“She’s already a Kajang assemblywoman. Since being elected as the assemblywoman, the people there have rarely seen her.
“If she wins here, how is she going to juggle her time to take care of both constituencies?” he asked.
Liow added that after winning the seat here in 2008, Dr Wan Azizah resigned halfway through to pave the way for her husband to contest.
“Don’t take the voters here for a ride, and come and go as you wish,” he said.
“The rakyat should teach her a lesson through the ballots. Do not fool the voters again,” he said after a walkabout in Taman Arowana in Permatang Pauh.
Liow said MCA would hold a house-to-house campaign and small-scale ceramah to woo the voters.
“We have started to engage our members numbering about 3,000 here,” he said.
“From there, the nucleus groups will be created to help us spread the message about the ugly side of PAS, PKR and DAP in handling the hudud issue.”
