Proposal for PAS to work with unity govt was my own view, says Kit Siang

PETALING JAYA: The proposal for PAS to cooperate with Anwar's unity government is an unofficial and personal view, says Lim Kit Siang.

He stressed that the proposal was not an official invite.

The DAP stalwart was responding to PAS information chief Khairil Nizam Khirudin's claim saying it was Lim - as a DAP advisor - who made the suggestion that the Islamist party join Anwar's unity government.

"Khairil is wrong. I am not the DAP adviser," Lim said in a statement on Wednesday (May 31).

Lim pointed back to a response he had made to PAS deputy president Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man on May 18 where he explained that the proposal for the party to cooperate with Anwar's government was his idea alone and not that of DAP.

"(It was) my idea and not that of DAP as I have not discussed it with the DAP secretary-general Anthony Loke or any other DAP leaders," he said in the response.

"This is why I declined Loke's proposal to appoint me as a DAP mentor. I want to give my views and ideas on the current national and international political situation without committing to the DAP.

"I think my efforts of more than a year have proved this point, and this clarification should put it beyond a shadow of doubt."
