fluence is no small matter. Without them, it can be certain that chances of Malacca DAP losing votes are high.”
It said following the mass resignation of the 182, some DAP members continue to express on Facebook that they had lost faith in the party and wished to quit.
“This shows that the wave of mass resignation is brewing,” the commentary added.
“As DAP secretary-general, Lim Guan Eng does not have the quality of a leader. He even joked that based on newspaper pictures, only 20 people were involved.”
He accused Barisan Nasional’s media unit of making up the number of DAP members who resigned.
“This has angered party members and voters.”
The commentary said the arrogant and dismissive attitude of top DAP leaders could be seen by looking at the suspension of membership of DAP veteran Sim Tong Him and party leader Goh Leong San, and the resignation of 182 members.
“It shows that the spirit of democracy is fading in the party as it veers towards autocracy.”
“Obviously, they don’t understand the real meaning of democracy.
“They have exposed that their only concern is they are the ‘masters’ while others are only the ‘people’,” it said.
The commentary added that voters might cast spoil votes as a way for them to teach opposition parties “a lesson”, citing the public’s loss of confidence in the opposition, especially DAP.
