PETALING JAYA: Selangor DAP chairman Tony Pua (pic) has taken to social media to vent his political frustration at so-called “friends”.

“Sometimes, you wonder what type of friends you have. When they are in a crisis, you backed them to the hilt, come what may,” he said in a public post on his Facebook account on Wednesday afternoon.

“Then that at a time where we would appreciate their support, they leak everything to the media first leaving you completely naked.

“Or announce to the whole world openly before they bother talking to us,” Pua added.

The thinly-veiled comment might be in relation to Pakatan Harapan partner PKR not supporting the snap polls in Penang, stating that it had yet to be convinced of the purpose.

PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail said the party had come to the decision after a meeting that also took into account the opinions of civil society.

Amanah, the third Pakatan Harapan party, is supporting DAP’s proposal to hold snap polls in Penang.

On Wednesday, Lim stated that DAP that it was willing to give PKR a “reasonable time” to decide, but noted that the decision could not be dragged on.
