PETALING JAYA: Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng should dismiss all PAS members from Penang government positions since the Islamist party has decided to cut ties with the DAP, says MCA.

Penang MCA deputy chairman Tan Teik Cheng said Lim should not wait for PAS representatives in the state government to resign but act decisively instead.

"Why does he have to wait for PAS reps to put forward their resignation letters? He can easily dismiss all PAS-appointed office bearers from the state government posts," said Tan in a statement, Wednesday.

Tan said Lim's actions in dealing with PAS diplomatically, even after PAS had clearly shown it will not work with the DAP, made the DAP seem "weak and passive".

He said the alliance of both parties, which was merely for the establishment of the Pakatan Rakyat framework, had been doomed from the start.

"The most outrageous thing is that, since PAS resolved to cut ties with DAP, now more than 1,000 PAS members in Penang stand to lose their state government-appointed posts.

"The state government’s administration will be affected, and likewise, future relations within Selangor Pakatan will also deteriorate. Ultimately, the ballots cast for Pakatan will cause the rakyat to suffer," he said.
