PETALING JAYA: MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong has lashed out at Pakatan Harapan leaders for their remarks against the Goods and Services Tax (GST) prior to the 14th General Election (GE14) in 2018.

“If the GST is reintroduced, does this mean that Pakatan leaders admit that their previous statements while campaigning during GE14 was a lie?

“If so, are Pakatan leaders prepared to make a public apology to Malaysians?” he said on Facebook.

Dr Wee was responding to Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s announcement that the government was willing to study calls to reintroduce the GST, if that was what the people want.

He said he had suggested to the Pakatan government to lower the GST rate to 3% instead of 6% when Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng tabled a Bill to abolish GST and to reintroduce Sales and Services Tax (SST) in August last year.

“Why didn’t Pakatan accept it then while Lim had boldly rejected it?

“How about the ABCDGST song sang by Lim and Teo Nie Ching (who is now the Deputy Education Minister)?

“Will there be a 2.0 version of the song?” asked Dr Wee.
