KUALA LUMPUR: MCA has urged the Chinese voters in Sungai Besar and Kuala Kangsar to reject PAS and Parti Amanah Negara in the parliamentary by-elections on June 18.

MCA central committee member Datuk Chew Kok Woh (pix) said PAS should be rejected for obvious reasons.

“The party's very existence is to turn Malaysia into an Islamic state and impose hudud.

“The MCA will remind the Chinese voters there to demand that the DAP explain why it asked the Chinese to support PAS in the 2013 general election," he said.

Chew said the DAP would now tell the Chinese to back Amanah, the breakaway group of former PAS leaders.

He said the DAP would portray Amanah leaders as being moderate but the Chinese should not be duped again.

Chew said Amanah leader, Khalid Samad, was among the first to declare his support for PAS president Datuk Seri Hadi Awang's Private Member’s Bill on Syariah court amendments.

On the other hand, he said, DAP and PKR had refused to commit themselves citing that it was too early to make a stand.

“I don't think the Chinese can afford to believe in these parties."

Chew hoped the Chinese had learnt the lesson of the last elections and reiterated that PAS and Amanah must be rejected as they were of the same mould.
