PM to Pakatan: Why didn't you form shadow cabinet?

KUALA LUMPUR: Pakatan Rakyat should not talk about taking over the government when it has not even form its own shadow cabinet, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak. He said having a shadow cabinet is fundamental in being in the opposition which Pakatan failed to do. “Why didn't they do it? Are they afraid that they do not know what posts to give to (DAP parliamentary leader) Lim Kit Siang, (PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul) Hadi Awang or (PAS deputy president) Mohamad Sabu? “Don't talk about forming the government, form the shadow cabinet first,” he said when addressing the Gerakan national delegates conference on Sunday. Citing an example, Najib said PR could not even agree on the implementation of hudud, resulting in the open squabble between PAS and DAP chairman Karpal Singh. "If you don't have a common position or policy on something so fundamental, how are you going to administer the country? You don't have the credibility to run the government,” he said. On PR's common policy framework Buku Jingga, Najib said it is “not worth the paper it is printed on.” He said PR's plan to restructure subsidies and abolish tolls would spell the end of Bursa Malaysia. “That is why Buku Jingga is not worth the paper is printed on,” he added.

tunku : just imagine if pakatan wins and forms the new goverment, they will fight each other for the cabinet posts. it is very important for pakatan if they are really serious to capture the federal government to form a shadow cabinet. it will be easy for them and easy for rakyat to judge their cabinet too. the problem is they can't, they just don't know who to put where and from which party.this clearly shows that they are not capable to be the government. they are best as opposition and we hope the remain a strong opposition side.
