DAP chairman Karpal Singh reiterated that PAS president Hadi Awang and DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang would be the deputy prime ministers of Malaysia when the Pakatan Rakyat wrests control of the federal government. “Both of them are capable of bringing progressive development to the country,” Karpal told reporters on Saturday. His comments are not new but the BN media has been keen to stir up trouble among the 3 coalition members – PKR, PAS and DAP. Recently, DAP sec-gen Lim Guan Eng nipped in the bud further such talk by reiterating that Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim would still be prime minister even if the BN jailed him on manifestly fabricated sodomy and sex video charges.
The BN then turned its attention on the No. 2 post, hoping to create envy among PAS members and suspicion among the Malay voters with the news that Kit Siang – an ethnic Chinese – would get to sit in such a high post. Racist Umno unable to accept a non-Malay DPM The BN is notoriously racist in its conduct. Led by Malay nationalist party Umno, it has been accused of driving the economy to the ground with massive and widespread corruption at all levels, and using racial and religious politicking and bigotry to mask its financial moves. Despite talk of power-sharing, none of the non-Umno components have any say in the BN decision-making. A recent example is Gerakan president Koh Tsu Koon, who was forced to announce that he would not contest in the next general election, widely expected to be held soon. However, even that was not enough to appease Umno and former premier Mahathir Mohamad has already led the Umno call for Tsu Koon to give up the Gerakan presidency. It is believed that plans are afoot for Tsu Koon’s predecessor Lim Keng Yaik to make a return to national politics. However, Keng Yaik is widely known to be battling a serious illness.

Yes. Theres a problem. These 2, (less so Hadi though) will keep the system in place to cynically take advantage (also deny freedom) of all Malaysians (Malays) at worst with the nepotism in DAP as bad as UMNO, or stagnate in a manner on issues as below mentioned.
Solution? Let ALL members of Pakatan political parties vote enmasse at a quorum of 66.6%. You’ll find Kit Siang and Hadi possibly at the bottom of the list (much like PKR’s 8% quorum in which Nurul and Azmin got to bve committee members in absence of a 66.6% quorum – can you say ‘kelam kabut’ – means slipshod . . .), simply because they might be too old and irrelevant to the majority younger members who want issues that old folk can never reconcile to, and I am not merely referring to LGBT or Apostasy for Muslims alone which these 2 probably will not be able to handle much less END APARTHEID.
Any politician who cannot honestly address and grant the below 3 items :
1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy.
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution.
;does not deserve to be DPM, much less an MP. All things considered, if the winning coalition has the guts and sense of ethics, one DPM should be from the losing coalition or any other coalition as well. BN did not have this confidence and sportsmanship, Pakatan sure looks like it doesn’t have confidence or ethics either.

And we all know what that means for the Malay demographic in DAP constituencies, looks like there will be nary a Malay vote for DAP . . . as of late December 2011, comments were allowed again . . . a corrected lapse is better than no correction at all.
