KLANG - A former state exco member is attacking his own party over the Selangor DAP’s continued co-existence with PAS in the state administration under the leadership of Mentri Besar Azmin Ali from PKR.

The matter has been further aggravated by PKR’s apparent support of the controversial amendment to the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act (RUU355) tabled as a Private Member’s Bill by PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang.

The harshest criticism comes from state DAP committee member Ronnie Liu, who is openly airing his unhappiness at the cooperation of PKR and DAP with PAS in the state government.

In a Facebook posting on Wednesday, Liu uploaded a newspaper clipping with news of Selangor PKR information chief Shuhaimi Shafiei voicing apparent support for RUU355.

Shuhaimi was quoted as saying that Selangor PKR called for Muslims to support the Bill and that it did not involve non-Muslims.

“What is this? It is difficult when you have friends like this.

“MCA, Gerakan, MIC and SUPP must hit out at PKR.

“DAP, Amanah and PPBM (Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia) will be shot as well,” said Liu in the Facebook posting.

When contacted, a state leader said the state DAP

GEORGE TOWN - Penang Umno will table a motion against Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng at the state assembly sitting on May 19 urging him to step down.

BENTONG - The Malays and Bumiputra will be sidelined if the people support the opposition at the 14th General Election (GE14) as it is akin to picking DAP to become the next government led by Lim Kit Siang.

"Picking the opposition means selecting DAP to become the government...if
