Dr Chua: Pakatan's fickleness over hudud law shows leadership friction
PETALING JAYA: Pakatan Rakyat's fickleness and indecisive stand on the hudud law has once again revealed friction in the pact's leadership, MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek said Friday.
He said Opposition leader adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's show of open support Thursday for hudud law to be implemented in Kelantan showed that the Opposition coalition could not agree on even a basic issue.
He also reiterated MCA's strong objection against the hudud law, saying the party would withdraw from Barisan Nasional if its ally Umno were to ever consider implementing an Islamic state.
"We can forget about driving the nation into a high-income economy status if hudud law is implemented (as it affects) investors' confidence," Dr Chua told reporters after the opening ceremony of the Making A High Income Nation A Reality national conference here Friday.
Meawhile, Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said it was not time for hudud to be implemented yet, and that Dr Chua's statement that MCA would retract from Barisan should hudud be implemented was merely based his own assumption.
Speaking after prayers with Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia students in Bangi, Muhyiddin said Umno's stand was not the same as PAS.
tunku : MCA can leave BN even now if they want, don't have to wait if Umno agrees or not with hudud implementation. we do not need a party that like to threat or blackmail. Umno is considering of implementing it and only waiting for the right time and the time is not now.so when chua said that if Umno ever consider to implement it they will withdraw, so please ,GO.don't worry chua, you won't be punished with 100 strokes of cane for your act in your porn video because first,you are not a muslim and second video evidence is not used by syariah laws.
