IPOH: No party is the leader in Pakatan Harapan, says Nga Kor Ming (pic).
The Perak DAP chairman was responding to a remark made by Puteri Umno chief Datuk Zahida Zarik Khan, who claimed that DAP was the true power in the coalition.
"In Pakatan, there are no parties that lead. Instead, we practice collective responsibility and leadership.
"We hold to the agenda of reformation strongly and make decisions together," he told reporters after attending a Christmas street celebration near Octagon Tower here Sunday (Dec 8)
It was reported on Thursday (Dec 5) that during the 2019 Umno General Assembly, Zahida claimed that Malay political leaders in the coalition were khadam (servants) to DAP and it was more important for them to please their "masters".
Nda said Umno was playing the racist card.
On a separate matter, Nga said a Perak exco member had told him not to worry about the possibility of rare earth mining in the state.
"The state exco told me that no discussions were made regarding earth mining in Perak. This is just another issue raised by the opposition," he said.
