DAP de­nies ‘Malay proxy’ claim

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

PETALING JAYA: DAP has de­nied claims by Umno that it was plant­ing Malay prox­ies in other op­po­si­tion par­ties in an at­tempt to weaken Malay dom­i­nance in pol­i­tics.

Party act­ing na­tional chair­man Tan Kok Wai said Umno was forced to frame DAP in such a way as they look to over­come their own un­der­ly­ing prob­lems.

Tan was re­spond­ing to claims by Umno in­for­ma­tion chief Tan Sri An­nuar Musa, who said DAP’s strat­egy in­volves plant­ing Malays in op­po­si­tion par­ties PKR, Amanah and Parti Pribumi Ber­satu Malaysia.

He said they would then stand as can­di­dates in the com­ing gen­eral elec­tion and should they win, will al­low DAP to rule.
