Kula: PAS pushing Chinese voters to Najib

Kula: PAS pushing Chinese voters to Najib

DAP's Ipoh Barat MP M Kulasegaran has blamed PAS for the increase in Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak's approval rating among Chinese Malaysians.

This is despite Najib's overall approval rating falling to 48 percent from 51 percent due to decline in support from Indian and Malay Malaysians.

"I believe that the increased Chinese support for Najib is due to their unhappiness with the hudud proposal made by PAS.

"PAS, being a partner of the Pakatan Rakyat coalition, must only propose and implement policies agreed to by DAP, PKR and PAS," Kulasegaran said in a statement today.

According to the survey by Merdeka Center conducted between Oct 11 and Oct 26, Najib's approval rating among Chinese voters increased to 27 percent from 22 percent in August.

Among Malay and Indian voters, Najib's support had fallen by five percent to 58 percent and by 12 percent to 52 percent respectively.

PAS had announced it aims to role out hudud in Kelantan by next year.

'Malaysians of all races yearning for change'

Kulasegaran's statement comes after DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng yesterday criticised PAS for not holding up to its promises, but Lim did so by not naming the party.

"We want to see a commitment that any agreement made is achieved will be carried out. Don't make a decision today and the next day it is overruled by the president.

"If even the president can reject the central committee, we do not know how to deal with this party," Lim had said in reference to PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang's conduct during the Selangor crisis, without naming Hadi.

Nonetheless, Kulasegaran said, he was confident Malaysians of all races were yearning for change, especially with Najib's double speak on moderation.

He said the government's inaction against Perkasa president Ibrahim Ali (left) for his threat to burn the Bible and Federal Territories Umno chief Mohd Razlan Mhammad Rafii's threat to burn the DAP headquarters were among the extremism and fanaticism under Najib's administration.

"What ought to be done are actions against the extremists, not just mere words or assurances.

"I hope Najib will know that people are already tired of his hollow talk," Kulasegaran added.
