Is GPS Playing An Active Role In The Recent ‘Frogging’ By PKR MPs?


Press Statement By Michael Kong:

Judging from the recent statements from Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah and James Masing, I start to get guarded on whether GPS had an active role to play in the recent change of allegiance by former PKR Member of Parliaments. First, when Larry Sng jumped, Abdul Karim did comment on it but I did not think too much into it. However, Abdul Karim’s recent statement in praising the actions of Dr Xavier Jayakumar makes me ponder.

By defending such actions, Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah is condoning and acknowledging the current ‘frog disease’ that many Member of Parliaments has contracted. It is sad that such a senior politician would encourage people to break people’s trust and betray the people’s mandate. To do so openly on numerous occasions only hits the nail into GPS’ coffin. If this is a party that subscribes to such acts of betrayal, then this party should be punished for thinking that it can rewrite the rules of democracy and rob the people of their vote.

Time and time again, we have seen how GPS has been poor in decision making. For over 55 years, it was part of a corrupt and useless BN coalition. Then when it had the chance to subscribe to a change in the Malaysian political landscape, it chose to be part of the Sheraton Move and orchestrate the downfall of a New Malaysia. To make things worse, GPS chose to partner with PAS which allowed PAS to helm many important ministries in the Federal Government.

It is because of GPS that we now have Takiyuddin Hassan as the de facto Minister of Law. Where has Malaysia gone since this MP from PAS came into power? We see various oppressive laws being passed on the pretext of the state of emergency. On top of that, we see the Putrajaya now appealing against the recent landmark judgment where the High Court allowed the use of ‘Allah’ by a Sarawakian Christian.

So, before GPS tries to show off its might and political strength, GPS ought to take a look in the mirror and look where our country is heading under its current leadership. This ridiculousness and mockery of the system will only stop the day that GPS stops holding any power.
