Now Sarawak DAP wants to leave Pakatan over hudud

Sarawak DAP sees no other option but to quit Pakatan Rakyat after the passing of hudud amendments by Kelantan PAS.

Chairman Chong Chieng Jen said the party had no choice but to consider taking the final step to leave the opposition coalition.

"I see no other option but the break-up of Sarawak Pakatan.

"However, as this is the most important decision to be made since I took the helm of the state committee in June 2013, I shall convene a state DAP committee meeting and get endorsement from the full committee," he said in a statement.

Chong, who is Bandar Kuching MP, reiterated that DAP had taken a strong stand against the implementation of hudud law in Malaysia.

Noting that the Kelantan hudud amendment bill was fully supported by Umno, Chong urged Barisan Nasional component parties to make their stand not only to PAS but also to Umno.

He called on all political parties in Sarawak to condemn the passing of Kelantan's Syariah Criminal Code II 1993 and any attempt by any party to undermine the nation's secular status.
