‘DAP will get ver­i­fi­ca­tion of Muhyid­din’s state­ment’

New Straits Times - - News -

GE­ORGE TOWN: DAP will get ver­i­fi­ca­tion be­fore com­ment­ing on re­ports that Parti Pribumi Ber­satu Malaysia (PPBM) pres­i­dent Tan Sri Muhyid­din Yassin had pro­posed that a Malay-based party should take charge of Pakatan Hara­pan.

DAP sec­re­tary-gen­eral Lim Guan Eng yes­ter­day said he would seek ver­i­fi­ca­tion first be­fore com­ment­ing on news re­ports on the mat­ter as some re­ports could be in­ac­cu­rate.

Muhyid­din had re­port­edly said this dur­ing a ce­ramah (talk) in Kota Kiri, Padang Ren­gas in Perak on Satur­day night.

The Pe­nang chief min­is­ter said Pakatan Hara­pan had just had a meet­ing last week, and had, in a joint state­ment signed by lead­ers of DAP, PKR and Parti Amanah Ne­gara (PAN), agreed to ac­cept PPBM as a new com­po­nent mem­ber.

“Since then, we have not had any meet­ings yet. I need to ver­ify if the news re­ports are true or not.

“After all, they (PPBM) had just been ac­cepted. We need to ver­ify that the re­ports were true and not Barisan Na­sional-me­dia’s game to pit us against one an­other,” he said when asked to com­ment on the mat­ter.

Lim stressed that Pakatan Hara­pan’s leader is Datuk Seri Dr Wan Az­izah Wan Is­mail and there has been no change to that.

“What had been de­cided pre­vi­ously stays,” he added.
