Anwar ask voters to teach UMNO/BN a lesson as DAP confirms using PAS, PKR logos...

Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim called on Chinese voters not to be tricked by Prime Minister Najib Razak's  "dirty politics", accusing the ruling Umno-BN coalition of trying to cheat by making it impossible for the DAP to use its Rocket logo in coming general election.

He also advised the DAP, one of the 3 Opposition parties that make up the Pakatan Rakyat coalition, not to be demoralized but to continue to fight even it if it meant having to contest under the logos of the other 2 Pakatan parties - PKR and PAS.

"Umno-BN is not making sense.  Saturday is nomination day and today, suddenly they are saying DAP cannot use the Rocket. I told YB Lim Kit Siang not to worry.  Tuan Guru Nik Aziz has already said use the Moon (PAS logo), use Keadilan (PKR logo)," Anwar told a packed political rally at Wangsa Maju organised by PKR senior leader Tan Kee Kwong on Thursday night.

"Do you think the Chinese are afraid of using the Moon? Do you think they are afraid of Keadilan. Let’s teach them a lesson."

Using the RoS to derail the Pakatan's advance?

The 64-year-old Anwar was referring to the announcement by the Registrar of Societies that it could not recognize the current set of DAP office bearers pending a probe into the party's recent internal election, which has been disputed by disgruntled members.

The RoS snub is seen by many political pundits as a sly move to derail the Pakatan by whittling down the popularity of the Chinese-based DAP by forcing it to contest under the logos of PAS, an Islamist party, and the multiracial PKR.

Although Election Commission deputy chairman Wan Ahmad Wan Omar has said he believed the DAP could still use its logo, there are concerns that with their office bearers 'disqualified', there would be no one left in DAP who could authorize their candidates to contest under the Rocket logo.

“If our CEC (central executive committee) is not recognised, how to issue authorisation letter to our candidates?” The Malaysian Insider reported Tony Pua, the DAP national publicity secretary as saying on Friday after a 5pm deadline to the RoS expired.

KUALA LUMPUR 19 APRIL: Pengerusi DAP, Karpal Singh mengesahkan calon-calon mereka akan bertanding menggunakan logo PAS di Semenanjung Malaysia dan KEADILAN di Sabah dan Sarawak dalam Pilihan Raya Umum 5 Mei ini.

Keputusan itu dibuat selepas tamat tempoh jam 3 petang yang diberikan oleh DAP kepada Pendaftar Pertubuhan (ROS) untuk menarik balik surat mereka dua hari lalu.

Karpal berkata, tiada tanda-tanda surat itu akan tiba.

"Ekoran itu, kami akan teruskan apa yang diputuskan semalam dan bertanding bawah lambang PAS di Semenanjung dan KEADILAN di Sabah dan Sarawak," katanya dipetik Malaysiakini. 

Setiausaha Agung PAS, Datuk Mustafa Ali ketika dihubungi juga mengesahkan DAP akan menggunakan logo parti Islam itu di Semenanjung.

Karpal sebelum ini meminta ROS menarik balik surat bertarikh 17 April sebelum jam 3 petang hari ini dan tidak akan memfailkan permohonan untuk mencabar keputusan ROS itu.

Surat itu dihantar ekoran dakwaan berlaku kesilapan teknikal dalam pemilihan parti itu tahun lepas.

Tindakan itu diambil walaupun Pengerusi Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya (SPR), Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof mengesahkan bahawa DAP masih boleh untuk bertanding walaupun tanpa pengiktirafan ROS.

"Saya telah tandatangan semua watikah untuk calon DAP (bertanding di Semenanjung)," kata Mustafa dipetik.

Tony added that the RoS did not contact DAP at all today, prompting the party's top leadership to make the unprecedented decision to contest under the PAS logo in Peninsular Malaysia and PKR in Sabah and Sarawak. PKR and PAS will now sign the letters of appointment for the DAP candidates that need to be submitted to the Election Commission on nomination day.

"April 18, 2013 had been the most heart-rending day in my life, the day when the Registrar of Societies dispatched a letter to the DAP to knock out the Rocket symbol from the 13GE, with the Nomination Day less than 48 hours away, completely without any legal basis or plausible ground," DAP adviser Kit Siang wrote in a statement on Friday.

"I was not the only one to shed tears yesterday as all over the country, many DAP stalwarts and supporters who are Malaysian patriots whose home and sole object of loyalty is Malaysia and do not know or recognize another country as their motherland, also cried at the injustice, oppression and iniquity of the RoS action, clearly at the behest of the political masters in Umno-Barisan Nasional."


What type of politics is this?

The Umno-BN has long been accused of racial and religious politicking and many of its strategists still view Malaysia's fast-evolving society as being divided by communal and religious boundaries. Hence, the latest allegations that Najib was trying to push Chinese voters back into the MCA's fold by making the DAP appear subservient to its partners and unable to protect the rights of the Chinese community.

In recent years, MCA - the BN's Chinese-based component - has lost tremendous ground to the Pakatan Rakyat and faces political obsolescence in Malaysia's 13th general election which is due to be balloted on May 5. Nomination day is on Saturday April 20.

Anwar also warned Umno-BN leaders that to poke fire in such a way would only backfire.

According to the Pakatan de-facto chief, Malaysians have already risen above "narrow" politics and agenda. This phenomenon was taking place across the nation and citizens were now more concerned about justice, a level playing field and transparency rather than dwelling on racial and religious differences, he added.

"What type of politics is this? Politics is for agenda, manifesto, policies. I say to DAP, if you can use the Rocket, use the Rocket, if you have to use Keadilan, use Keadilan, if you have to use the Moon, use the Moon. But fight we must, fight we must," said Anwar to thunderous applause.- Malaysia Chronicle
