SHAH ALAM, Nov 15, 2015:
PAS will ensure that DAP does not dominate any one city to prevent their former political allies from making “halal” (allowed) what is “haram” (prohibited) for Muslims.
According to PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang, the same concept was applied during the local election crisis in Penang earlier this year.
Abdul Hadi said this while commenting on a statement by DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng who insisted this morning that DAP remain in Selangor to ensure that PAS was unable to get up to any mischief there.
“We (also) prevented DAP from holding local elections in order to prevent the Chinese to dominate the city.
“We’ll not allow the city to be dominated by DAP, legalising alcohol and gambling for Muslims. That’s the answer. Simple,” said Abdul Hadi during a Press conference at a Jelas bersama Presiden event today.
Previously, there was tension between the DAP and PAS in Penang over local elections with the latter party seeing it as not part of normal practice.
Subsequently, Abdul Hadi said there needed to be “checks and balance” in each city to ensure that it was represented by all races without the domination of any party.
Earlier today, during the Wanita DAP National Congress 2015, Lim said DAP should remain in the Selangor state government to ensure that PAS was unable to get into mischief in the state.
Lim claimed that Kelantan, under the administration of PAS, was in bad condition, referring to scandals such as those disclosed by Salor assemblyman and former PAS vice-president Datuk Husam Musa.
