PETALING JAYA: DAP is to be blamed for the tabling of the Private Member’s Bill by PAS and should apologise to the voters, says MCA central committee member Datuk Chew Kok Woh.
Chew said because of the DAP, the number of MPs from the Islamist party increased and many moderate Barisan Nasional leaders lost or had their majority reduced.
“Thanks to the DAP; it was DAP who convinced Chinese voters to support PAS. They had dismissed our earlier warnings of the hudud agenda as scare tactics,” he said.
Chew, who is one of the Sabah MCA leaders, demanded that DAP apologise to the voters for helping PAS at the last general election.
He said the aim of PAS to form an Islamic state showed that DAP had lied to the people.
“DAP claims it has severed ties with PAS but (Penang Chief Minister) Lim Guan Eng still keeps PAS representatives in the state executive council,” Chew said. “This is pure hypocrisy.
“It is the same with the Selangor government, they are bluffing the people,” he said.
Chew said the DAP had lied to the Chinese in 2013 even though PAS has never said it would put aside its Islamic state ambitions.
“The MCA has consistently warned the Chinese voters of the dangers of voting for PAS.”
