Pakatan formed for power, says Khairy

The opposition pact, Pakatan Harapan was formed not for the truth but instead for only one goal, namely, for the sake of getting power, Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin said.

He said for the sake of power, the two top leaders of the pact, namely, chairman Tun Mahathir Mohamad and de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim, who is also a former Umno member, are willing to betray the party of which they were members previously.

“The principle of Pakatan Harapan is not for the future of the country but to work together for the sake of their respective powers. Mahathir and Anwar Ibrahim were former Umno leaders and now they are seeking to break up Umno and the Malays.

“We cannot have a government established on the basis and principle of wanting power, because it is not the foundation of any party that establishes the government,” he said when opening the Kepala Batas Umno Division delegates meeting.

Recently, Pakatan Harapan launched a new logo with their presidential council chaired by Mahathir, and Anwar as the de facto leader, Wan Azizah Wan Ismail as the president and three deputy presidents, Lim Guan Eng, Mohamad Sabu and Muhyiddin Yassin.

Khairy said all the progress, harmony and goodness that the Barisan National (BN) government had built for 60 years governing the country would be destroyed if the country was ruled by a party or coalition based on the crave for power.

Describing the coming general election as a ‘father’ of all elections, he urged the Malays to unite and work together to support BN’s candidates to ensure the sustainability of the progress they have enjoyed.

The Barisan Nasional (BN) is not afraid to face anyone in the upcoming general election, he said.

In this regard, he said, the perception that the problem between the DAP and the Registrar of Societies (ROS) was a ploy by the BN to declare the party illegal was totally incorrect.

“BN does not need to disqualify or deregister anyone in order to win. This is nothing to do with BN,”

“This is the problem that arose from the early election by the DAP. To say that this is an effort to disqualify the DAP because we don’t want to face the party is a misperception,” he said.

He said all parties must comply with the regulations and directives of the ROS and, in fact, Umno, although it is the ruling party, had undergone a similar situation and was declared illegal.

“I feel we too do not want the DAP to be deregistered , we don’t indulge in such politics. If they are deregistered, then there will be sympathy for the DAP,” he said.

Last Friday, DAP national vice-president, Teresa Kok announced that the party was prepared to hold a re-election for the Central Executive Committee (CEC) but it would be held ‘under protest’ and will not affect the party’s efforts to take legal action against the ROS if necessary.

Khairy, who is also Youth and Sports Minister, said the DAP should respect the decision of the ROS and not to turn it into a controversial issue.

He said the move by the DAP to call for fresh elections for the CEC under protest was unreasonable and appeared as though it was disputing the directive of the ROS.

Last Monday, the DAP was reported to have received a letter from the ROS instructing the party to hold fresh elections for the CEC and the party was given 14 days to inform the ROS officially on its decision.-24/7/2017
