DAP denies ‘Malay proxy’ claim
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.
