Hadi should totally blame himself for causing PR’s demise, instead of unfairly blaming and attacking the DAP

Hadi should totally blame himself for causing PR’s demise, instead of unfairly blaming and attacking the DAP

PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang’s insistence that Pakatan Rakyat ( PR) still exists is only an attempt by him to avoid more self inflicted embarrassment to PAS. 

After so much has been said by PAS leaders that the party’s 61 st Muktamar ( General Assembly ) decision to sever ties with DAP is not final, PAS Syura Council will have to  meet to do the “academic exercise” of accepting the Muktamar decision; hence it will be a great embarrassment if Hadi were to admit that PR no longer exists.

But the fact is crystal clear—PAS Muktakmar motion has killed off PR that came into being on April 21, 2008 after voters had given their strong support to the opposition parties in the nation’s 12 the general election.

Many supporters have found it strange that after having made the decision to sever ties with DAP and killed off PR, PAS has kept insisting that PR still exists and that business can go on as usual.
This is self deception by PAS and Hadi has to accept that PR no longer exists. 

It is baffling that Hadi has said that PR continues to exist because DAP had no right to make the announcement on PR’s dissolution and that DAP did not understand the meaning of the pact.

Why has he not defended that PAS Muktamar decision to sever ties with DAP is not final because the Muktamar is not the highest decision making body in the party? 

Hadi knows very well that on the issue of severing ties with DAP, the Muktamar is the highest decision making body in PAS. 

As such, instead of giving laughable explanations, Hadi who has also violated the decisions of the PR leadership council prior to the Muktamar motion, should be bold enough to admit that PAS has killed off PR.

While Hadi is so powerful in his party that he could instruct that the motion to sever ties with DAP to be tabled and passed without debate at the Muktamar, he still has much to learn about joining and the meaning of a pact.

When a party joins a pact, it has to abide by the agreements and decisions made by the coalition.
Yet Hadi has been guilty of serious violations of the PR Common Policy Framework and the PR consensus operational principle.

Hadi should therefore totally blame himself for causing PR’s demise, instead of unfairly blaming and attacking the DAP.
