KUALA LUMPUR: DAP’s constant change in allies reflects a questionable political approach and untrustworthiness.
MCA president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said such examples could be seen through DAP’s former partnership with Pas president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang, and current ties with PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and even Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
Liow said such a loose grip on principles, as displayed by DAP, revealed a self-serving mission for power.
“We know that DAP constantly and easily changes its political partners from Hadi to (now) Anwar and Dr Mahathir.
“This is a party without principles. They traded in the people’s trust for power,” Liow said during MCA’s 69th-anniversary gathering today at Wisma MCA.
Speaking before some 2,500 delegates, Liow also said DAP’s struggles were made to serve party secretary-general Lim Guan Eng and his father party adviser Lim Kit Siang’s vested interests, and not the Chinese community.
“The Chinese community cannot depend on DAP champion their issues. The party will do whatever it takes to grab on power, not to save the country but for Kit Siang and Guan Eng’s personal agenda.”
Liow said on the other side, MCA had successfully reinvented itself as a solid party which helped to strengthen unity in the country.
“We play an important role not only for the Chinese community but harmony, stability and unity among races in the country.”
Also present were Liow’s deputy Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong and party secretary-general Datuk Seri Ong Ka Chuan.
