THE women wings of PAS, DAP and PKR have vowed to be the stabilising factor in Pakatan Rakyat in light of the Kedah DAP’s pullout from the state coalition.

Central committee member Dr Lo’Lo Mohamad Ghazali said the women wings had urged the central committee for the leadership to have more consultations and communication, and for each party to be more sacrificial for one another.

She said they had agreed to it.

“We have also sent the same message to the states,” she said at the Parliament lobby yesterday.

The Kedah DAP pulled out from the state coalition after accusing the PAS-led state government of not giving equal treatment to Kedahans. It apparently made the decision after the state government demolished an illegal pig slaughterhouse on Wednesday.

Asked if the women wings would go to the ground to help out in the Kedah issue, Dr Lo’Lo said they would focus on the Manek Urai by-election first as it was around the corner.

She refuted talk that the Kedah episode showed that there were cracks in the pact.

“We are the stabilising factor and we will ensure that Pakatan will continue to be strong. These are common problems and I believe it would help Pakatan to mature,” she said.

DAP women chief Chong Eng said: “Our problem is not big. We agree that we will be the stabilising factor in Pakatan.”
