Opposition parties told to admit their mistakes

Date:

KUCHING: Oppositions have to admit their faults instead of putting the blame on Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) as Pakatan Harapan (PH) has caused political instability since last year until now.

Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) Backbencher Club deputy chairman Aidel Lariwoo, in saying this, said that it was PH who had created chaos and instability; thus Umno came back to power because of PH’s failure.

He said most importantly what Sarawak wants is political stability and focus on fighting Covid-19 pandemic.

“When PH was in power, what did they do? Cut and cancel budget allocations for Sarawak.

“And Parti Sarawak Bersatu (PSB) was asking GPS to back PH’s choice for prime minister when PH had treated GPS so badly last time?

“Does that really portray PSB’s intention of wanting good for Sarawak?” he questioned in a statement today (Aug 21).

Aidel also asked, with 42 seats from Democratic Action Party (DAP) and two seats from PSB having failed and unable to affect the outcome of the prime minister appointment, are they admitting that even though they have so many seats, they still fail to have any say?

“The decision (prime minister’s appointment) had been made by Yang di-Pertuan Agong and should be respected by all parties.

“By putting the blame on GPS, does that mean PSB is dissatisfied and does not respect the Agong’s decision?” he further asked.

PH leaders, he said, have several times openly mentioned that they are willing to accept the cooperation with Umno.

“But when Umno abandoned DAP, PH started to criticise the prime minister is from Umno. That would be a double standard of PH,” said Aidel.
