DAP:EGM approved constitutional amendment

The special party EGM today agreed to postpone the party congress/conference to ONE year in view of the impending general elections which was widely predicted to be held some time end of this year.

Only six delegates disageed with the move which was largely endorsed by the party delegates all over the country. The party could now focus all its energy, finances and time in peparing for the coming general elections.

Party chairman Karpal Singh, SG Lim Guan Eng and Oppositoion Leader Lim Kit Siang spoke to the delegates on issues related to general elections and cooperation with PKR and other like-minded opposition parties and NGOs.

In the lunch-talk in the afternoon, special guest of honour (PKR’s advisor )Anwar Ibrahim thanked the DAP for going all out to help PKR in Ijok. And he streesed emphatically that what Umno fear most was opposition unity. He hopes DAP and PKR could move together closely from now on to reform Malaysia. 

Anwar cetagorically denied that he would return to Umno; he even said that Umno is the real problem in Malaysian politics; to him , MIC, Gerakan and MCA were just “small boys who listen to the big brother”. 

He spoke at length on issues such as the need to challenge SPR for electoral reforms, replacing NEP with a new Malaysian economic agenda , fair treatment for mother tongue education, freedom of religion, the jurisdiction of syariah courts, Islamic State and greater cooperation and understanding among the opposition parties.

I am reproducing DAP SG Lim Guan Eng’s speech in full here. Your comments are welcome.

Speech By DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng During The DAP Special Congress On 6.5.2007 In Federal Hotel Kuala Lumpur.

Reclaiming Democracy & Restoring Bangsa
Malaysia

More than four decades ago, the DAP was formed with a singular idea of national unity through shaping a Bangsa Malaysia granting political equality and economic freedom to end social injustices. DAP believes that we can forge a great Malaysian nation by being part of Bangsa
Malaysia that  rejects racial and religious divisions. DAP’s Malaysian Malaysia resonated with Malaysians who considers themselves as Malaysian First and Malay, Chinese, Indian, Kadazan and Ibans second.
 

Our courageous struggle appeared to bear fruit when former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir adopted Bangsa Malaysia in 1991 as one the nine strategic challenges of Vision 2020 to make
Malaysia a developed nation. Mahathir defined Bangsa Malaysia as   “people being able to identify themselves with the country, speak Bahasa
Malaysia and accept the Constitution”.
 Unfortunately Bangsa
Malaysia as part of national policy lasted only 15 years when Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak rejected it last year. Najib said Bangsa
Malaysia was not part of national policy but only a general concept. At a time when we are celebrating our 50th Merdeka anniversary celebrations the country should be looking forward to the challenges of globalization and a market economy with new and current ideas of the new millennium. Instead the ruling regime continues to reach back 60 years ago to 1946 that stresses the idea of nationhood that revolves around the idea of racial dominance.
 

There is neither logic nor reason in preferring racial dominance to a Malaysian race. Self-interest to preserve the ruling party is the sole reason for such emotional appeals to the baser instincts of race.   We have a historical duty to renew our struggle for a Bangsa Malaysia. However this contest must not be seen solely from the perspective of political rights or social injustices but also from the economic perspective of wealth creation and distribution. Malaysian First is a continuation of Malaysian Malaysia with equal economic opportunity as its central core. 

Equal opportunity is not just giving everyone the right to study, the right to work, right to spend what is earned, right to own property and have the state as a servant and not as a master but also about our obligation to help the needy.  No one is fated to be poor just as no one is entitled to wealth. Social justice gives everyone the opportunity to improve their standard of living.  We must free up the potential of our greatest resource – our human resources. We must empower every Malaysian with economic freedom and equal opportunity to achieve the great Malaysian Dream of success through hard work and ability. 

If we succeed, we can transform
Malaysia into a united nation identified with a common destiny sharing values of democracy, freedom, justice, integrity and human dignity. If we fail, we have a sham democracy that can not differentiate between right and wrong.
 Last week, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said that the Ijok by-election showed that democracy was “vibrantly alive” in
Malaysia because the opposition was given every opportunity to campaign. No DAP or opposition supporter would agree that we were given every opportunity to campaign when BN can employ such dirty tactics of fear, deception, money, compulsion and violence.
 

Not only were DAP and PKR supporters beaten up in Machap and Ijok. Even a reporter and a photographer from Tamil newspapers were manhandled and threatened by BN leaders. No action was taken against the culprits and the victims were invariably blamed. In both Macap and Ijok by-elections, BN announced development projects of RM 30 million and RM 36 million or almost RM 3,000 per voter.   Democracy under BN is both flawed and fraudulent. Malaysians need to reclaim democracy from those who cheat, frighten and buy our votes. Failure to resist such perversions of democracy would be no different from surrendering our right to treat the government as our servant.  

Give RM 5,000 To Every Family From The Bottom 40% Of The Population Who Do Not Earn A Montly Income Of RM 3,249/-

Instead of getting a government that listens to us, delivers good governance and performs its constitutional duties in accordance with the rule of law, respects press freedom and basic human rights as well as overcome social injustices; that Confucious says “a cruel government is more rapacious than a ravenous tiger” will become a reality where –1.      Corruption becoming more rampant until Transparency International ranking for, Malaysia has declined from No. 37 in 2003 to No. 44 in 2006 shown by:-1.1.  The RM 900 million commission paid by the suppliers of war submarines and Sukhoi fighter jets to Abdul Razak Baginda and a former Melaka Chief Minister;1.2.  The ACA Director-General is himself investigated for corruption and sexual crimes or the Deputy Internal Security Minister Datuk Mohamad Johari Baharom is investigated for the RM 5.5 million “freedom for sale” scandal involving the release of 3 kingpins of black society triads, one of the three allegedly the younger brother of a MCA Deputy Minister.1.3.  The refusal of Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to sue Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim for his alleged involvement in the murder of a Mongolian model by his close aide Datuk Abdul Razak Baginda;2.      Malaysians suffer the worst income inequality between the rich and poor in
South-East Asia with the share of income of the bottom 40% of the population declining from 14.5% in 1990 to 13.5% in 2004 whilst the share of the top 20% of the population increased from 50% in 1990 to 51.2% in 2004.
3.      Unfair contracts against national interest given to highway concessionaires where total amount of toll collections and government compensation paid of RM 62 billion far exceeds the RM 27 billion construction and maintenance cost.4.      The presence VIP politician godfathers involved in crime and the increase in crime by 10.7% for the first three months of the year thereby failing to ensure that Malaysian can live, work and study safely;5.      The failure to share Petronas’ profits of RM 500 billion in since 1974 with the people;6.      Poor delivery system with cracks on walls and ceiling collapsing in the new RM 270 million Kuala Lumpur court complex in Jalan Duta, following similar damage to other government buildings in Putrajaya. Yes, Bursa
Malaysia has risen to a record high of 1,363 points on Friday, but we are the last ones to do so in the region.  China, India, Hong Kong and
Singapore are all nearly 30% above their previous record highs achieved in the 1990s.  Even Thailand, Philippines and
Indonesia have broken their previous records many months ago.  In this globally competitive world, its not about whether you grow, its how fast you grow in relation to other countries.  And by this yardstick,
Malaysia is faring very very poorly.  In the early 1990s, our stock market capitalisation was significantly larger than
Singapore’s.  But today, in just a little more than a decade, the Singapore Exchange is now some 3 times larger than Bursa
Malaysia.
 

In foreign investments, while Malaysia’s foreign direct investment has fallen from US$7.2 billion to US$3.9 billion in 2006 in 10 years,
Singapore’s FDI has increased more than 3 times from US$9.1 billion to US$31 billion within the same period.
 How many Malaysians have benefited from rising share prices when they find difficulty in bearing the financial hardships of inflation, rising prices coupled with no annual bonuses nor real wage increases this year? In the face of so much wealth why can’t the government follow
Singapore and
 distribute RM 5,000 yearly to the 40% of Malaysian households that do not earn the average household monthly income of RM 3,249?
 

Winning Together for Malaysian First.The theme of this year’s DAP Special Congress ‘Winning Together for Malaysian First’ requires us to examine the extent of our efforts in preparing for the next general election, which could be held as early as the end of this year. The CEC is concerned that party elections at both the national and state levels due at the end of the year may be severely disrupted if general elections are called then. There are already clear indications of an early poll. From Election Commission Chairman Tan Sri Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman calling on new voters who wish to vote in the next general elections to do so by August 2007.  UMNO Youth President Datuk Hishamuddin Tun Hussein Onn that UMNO members must be prepared for a general election to be called any time or even the printing of election materials. 

As the party constitution does not allow for postponement of party polls for any period of time, any postponement in the event of general elections questions the legality and validity of our duly constituted CEC or state committees and organs. To avoid such an illegal eventuality, the CEC had decided to postpone party polls at the national and state levels for a period of 12 months. Only branch and Parliamentary liaison committee elections remain unaffected.  The CEC seeks the endorsement of all the delegates. Further, such a postponement would allow us to focus on preparation by all state committees and branches for the general election. Let me be frank by saying that all state committees are still not in FULL election mode. 


Malaysia is at a political crossroads the crossroad and to make DAP the choice of Malaysians we must present ourselves as “electable’ and fulfill high public expectations. 马来西亚处在向上提升或者继续往下沉轮的十字路口 To do so, let us all be crystal clear about this: that elections must be won by conscious effort!
 Contesting 54 Parliamentary and 115 state Seats Nation-wide In the Next PollsDAP state committees have proposed contesting 54 Parliamentary seats and 115 state seats nation-wide, including Sabah and
Sarawak. While at times individual candidates may have won elections by default or due to massive protests against Barisan Nasional, there is no way the entire party is going to win by just depending on BN’s misrule and maladministration.
 

In the first chapter of the much treasured Sun Zi’s treatise on war(《孙子兵法》), Sun Zi said “The art of war, then, is governed by five constant factors, to be taken into account in one’s deliberations, when seeking to determine the conditions obtaining in the field. These are: (1) Principles; (2) Heaven (climate); (3) Earth (local factors); (4) The Commander; (5) Method and discipline.” (道、将、  Guided by these principles, let us ask ourselves how well are we prepared in face of the coming elections?  

First, it is our belief that the principles of Malaysian First to reclaim democracy, restore Bangsa Malaysia, fair distribution of wealth and equal opportunity is the way forward for
Malaysia. Second, the political climate appears to favour the opposition but this situation may change with the short memory of the electorate, especially when the government distributes political goodies.
 Third, have we measured local factors in elections? Have we done enough in tilting local factors into our favour? Fourth, are our ‘commanders’, central, state and branch leaders, prepared? Are we prepared to lead our comrades and supporters to fight a good fight?   Fifth, do we have disciplined machinery to do the job?  

While we are well ahead of our opponents in terms of upholding the principles cherished by Malaysians and there may be a swing amongst Chinese voters in our favour, we are lagging behind in terms of the last three factors. The three factors are local factors, preparedness of all level of leadership and, finally, our machinery as evidenced by the recent Machap by-election.  I urge you to take a hard look at the four bare minimum ‘Rs’ that are urgently needed to generate electoral victories. These should be our KPIs, or key performance indices, for the remainder of the year in preparation for the general elections.   1.      Registration of new voters;2.      Recruitment of volunteers and members trained not only as polling and counting agents but also as future party activists and leaders;3.      Retailing The Rocket to overcome increasing press restrictions and media ban where Freedom House ranked press freedom in Malaysia as “Not Free” deteriorating from to 141 in 2006 from 150 in 2007; and4.      Rapport with local constituents, associations and press media. 

These are the 4 areas where we have to work hard together to survive. I am always hopeful and optimistic about DAP’s election prospects but the Ijok and Machap by-elections have injected a healthy dose of realism. Unless we have our machinery in place, BN will cheat, use money to buy and frighten voters to gain their dishonourable victories. For the first time in party history, state-wide meetings shall be held in place of state conventions solely to discuss election preparation. I urge the members to remember that when you face those who assure you of glorious victories by DAP do not be too over-confident and get carried away. Be humble and gently remind everyone of the dirty tactics employed by BN to win. When facing those who dismiss and unfairly criticize the party be patient, restrained and respond by “using constructive conduct to face destructive acts”.  

6 Key Principles for Co-operationIn the coming general elections, the DAP does not walk alone.  Apart from PKR’s Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, we are willing to co-operate with all public organizations or political parties that share the common platform of respecting basic human rights. Six key principles are crucial namely:-a)      Acceptance of Bangsa
Malaysia,
b)     Respecting Bahasa
Malaysia as the official language as well as promotion and fair treatment of mother-tongue education;
c)     Acceptance of 1957 social contract as set out in the Merdeka Constitution that
Malaysia is not an Islamic state;
d)     Replacing the corrupt New Economic Policy with a policy that combines efficiency with needs and wealth creation with wealth distribution.e)     Pursuit of excellence in education based on merit and equal opportunity; andf)      Placing environmental protection equal in importance with development.  This contest between Bangsa
Malaysia on the one hand and racial dominance on the other will decide not only the rights of all Malaysians but the destiny of our nation. Malaysians must choose between the two opposite principles of right and wrong. Racial dominance has not benefited the Malays who remain poor whilst the few BN leaders amassed huge wealth. We either prosper together as part of humanity or submit to common fears of prejudice that discriminates many to enrich the few?
 A million talented Malaysians have voted with their feet against BN  by emigrating overseas for the last 35 years. The time has come for a change to stop the rot. DAP comrades, Let us stand together and united to reclaim democracy and restore Bangsa
Malaysia!

来届大选出战54国115州
行动党修改党章展延党选
郭史光庆
07年5月6日 下午3:25
Malaysiakini
行动党秘书长林冠英(左图)今日表示,该党有意在来届大选中攻打54个国会议席和115个州议席,并把选战主力集中在槟城、霹雳以及森美兰州。惟他强调,此事依然有待与人民公正党协商后,再做出最后决定,以确保反对党能够一对一与国阵直接对垒。不过,他重申该党与回教党毫无合作关系,若面对出战选区重叠一事,行动党将不惜展开三角战。林冠英也强调,该党领导层与公正党顾问安华的合作关系成熟。事缘该党成功在依约补选中为公正党争取更多华人票,安华也因此而公开致谢行动党,相信两党的关系,并不会因为竞相争取华人票而发生冲突。林冠英拒绝透露何处上阵

林冠英今日在吉隆坡一家酒店为行动党特别党员代表大会发表政策演词时表示,该党各州委员会已经建议,要在来届大选中竞选54个国会议席和115个州议席,包括沙巴与砂拉越(惟不包括去年刚进行选举的砂拉越州议席)。

林冠英较后在记者会上表示,上述建议来自该党的各州委员会,不过目前还未获得中委会的通过。

“如果可以,我们希望能够通过他们的建议,但是我们必须先与公正党进行商讨,确保反对党与国阵一对一竞选。”

针对会否与回教党进行议席谈判的询问,林冠英表示,行动党要竞选的议席,大多是该党曾经参选过的传统选区,与回教党选区重叠的可能性非常低。

“不过若被迫与回教党展开三角战,那么也只好进行三角战,我们与回教党没有任何合作关系。”

不过,林冠英拒绝透露与公正党议席谈判的进展,以及自己将在什么选区上阵的问题,“我只能说自己肯定会参选”。

行动党在上届大选攻打44个国会议席和104个州议席,分别赢得12个国会议席和15个州议席,在加上在去年砂拉越州选举中拿下的6个州议席。不过在马口州议员林辉明跳槽马华后,目前行动党共有12个国会议席和20个州议席。

指公正党靠民行争取华裔选票

针对公正党在依约补选声称获得多达六成的华裔选民支持,以及一些政论家看好公正党有望在下届大选赢得更多华裔选票一事,是否会导致两党在争取华裔选民方面出现竞争时,林冠英强调,其实是行动党在依约补选中为公正党争取华人票。

“安华已经向行动党致谢,因为行动党在依约补选中为公正党争取华人票……我想我们应该建设性地看待此事,安华了解我们的长处,不然他不会这么说(致谢),我们不应该让这项课题影响两党的关系。”

“当然一些人以为可以利用这些所谓的问题(来达到自己的目的),但是我认为行动党领导层与安华的关系已达成熟阶段。”

安华:反对党先搁置回教国课题

另一方面,行动党今日也邀请了安华(左图)前来与特大代表进行交流。而安华在交流之前也召开记者会,针对反对党之间的合作关系侃侃而谈。

“我们已经看到反对党之间拥有更好的合作关系 我们看到行动党在依约补选期间全体动员大力助选,以确保我们的候选人胜出,我们可以从这点出发,有关政党的领袖将针对各项课题的细节进行谈判与讨论。”

受询及行动党与回教党因理念相冲,尤其是回教国的课题而不咬弦,他要如何拉近这两个政党的关系时,安华对此保持乐观,表示反对党会先搁置回教国课题。

“行动党已清楚表达(针对回教国的)立场,我也传达让回教党知道,这不是一项新课题,我们也不是在这个基础上推动(反对党之间的合作)。”

“我们的工作建立在公正党和行动党紧密合作的基础上,我们也开始和回教党展开更强的联系,确保有关课题不会剥削其他族群的权利,或让其他人士感到不安。”

“这也包括回教国的课题,不过我们先将之搁置在一旁。目前反对党之间的关系正在向好的一方面发展,只要国营电视台RTM、第三电视和巫统的报章不要刻意炒作(回教国课题)就行。”

拒回应展延党选不当批评

行动党今日所召开的特别党员代表大会,是为了修改党章以授权中委会展延,原本预定在今年9月开始举行的党选。

不过,在今年1月遭罢免的行动党前雪州主席王志坚却不认同展延党选,并形容此举是当权派欲巩固权力的手段。

新海峡时报》记者Chow Kum Hor今日在一篇评论中,引述行动党内部消息认为林冠英可能是因为担心在本届大选前举行的党选中得票不高,本身领导威信受打击,重演在2004年中委会选举中排名过低(在20获选中委排名第12名)的历史,所以才决定展延党选。

受询及展延党选的批评,林冠英却不愿公开回应,“我想我们不须要公开讨论此事,党内设有讨论管道,为何不在特大里提出讨论,却要从外面来丑化行动党?”

至于为何在野党之中只有行动党展延党选,林冠英解释说,有别于其他只须在中央领导层进行改选的在野党,该党是唯一须要进行州级改选的在野党,因此较长的党选期很容易与大选撞期,届时将严重影响党选的程序和大选的备战。

他解释,过去该党也曾经违章展延党选,所幸当时的社团注册局没有追究,因此此次修改党章将能够一劳永逸解决这项问题。

合作关系必须符合6大原则

另外,林冠英较早前在发表政策演词时,列出6项与其他政党和组织合作的主导原则:

(一)接受马来西亚国族这个概念;
(二)尊重马来语为官方语文,同时公平对待和提升母语教育;
(三)接纳1957年独立宪法的社会契约,即马来西亚不是一个回教国;
(四)以一个综合绩效、需求、制造财富和公平分配财富的政策来取代腐败的新经济政策;
(五)追求卓越与平等机会的教育制度;
(六)环境保护与发展并重。

林冠英较后在记者会上表示,“我们只与符合这6项原则的政党合作,至于那些不符合的政党,我看要合作非常困难”。

当记者询问这是否意味着回教党遭排除在合作对象之外时,他笑笑表示,“我想我们的立场已经非常清楚,不必再进一步说明吧!”

坦诚竞选机关落后,备战工作不足

此外,林冠英也在政策演词中,直指该党领袖尚未做好迎战大选的准备,“让我坦白地说,所有的州委会还没有全面备战”。

他引用《孙子兵法》的道(原则理念)、天(政治气候)、地(地方因素)、将(领袖)、法(方法和纪律)5种战略因素来分析行动党的形势。

“虽然我们在倡导马来西亚人所认同的价值观遥遥领先,以及华裔选票可能会回流给行动党,但是我们在后面三个因素落后他人。这三个因素就是地方因素、各阶层领导的准备程度和竞选机关,最近的马接补选就是最好的证明。”

因此,他提出4项备战大选的主要指标,并称之为“四广工作”或“4R工作”,即广泛登记(Registration)新选民、广泛招揽(Recruitment)自愿人士和党员、广泛销售(Retailing)《火箭报》突破新闻封锁,以及广泛推动(Rapport)与地方上的选民、社团和媒体的互动。

“虽然我对于行动党的选举展望保持希望和乐观,但是依约和马接补选却敲醒我们必须面对现实。除非我们准备齐全,要不然,国阵依然能够通过欺诈、买票和恐吓选民的方式来取胜。”

    行动党修改党章展延党选
    来届大选攻打54国115州

    ■日期/May 06, 2007 ■时间/11:30:49 pm
    ■新闻/家国风云 ■作者/本刊记者

    【本刊记者撰述】民主行动党今日举办党员代表特别大会以222票对6票,通过修改党章,以允许该党在党选碰到全国大选时,将全国和州级党选展延12个月。

    该党秘书长林冠英(左图)在致词时表示:“由于党章不允许我们在任何时候展延党选,任何因为大选而将党选展延的决定,将令中央委员会、州委会及全党领导架构的合法性和有效性受到质疑。为了避免上述非法的情况出现,中委决定将全国、州级党选展延12个月。只有支部及国会联委会选举不受影响。”

    他补充:“另外,展延党选,能让各州委员会及至不集中精力筹备全国大选。让我坦白说,所有的州委会还没有全面备战。”

    林冠英说,该党意识到全国大选的脚步逐渐逼近,由于民主行动党是马来西亚唯一有举行全国和州级选举的政党,若该党在全国和13个州级选举期间碰上大选,民主行动党担心选举机关无法有效运作,而作出上述建议。在党章修改之前,该党中委无权将党选展延。

    在这项主题为“马来西亚人优先,开创新赢面”特大中,通过修改的党章为第8章第1条款之规定,并建议在其后加上:“不管章程其他条款所作的决定,若召开全国党员代表大会、党员代表会议、州党员代表大会及州常年代表大会的日期,落在距离国会根据联邦宪法第55(3)条文必须解散不到两年的期限内,中央执行委员会有权展延有关会议不得超过12个月的期限。”

    党章修改后,该党中央委员会有权展延党选,不过,若党选没有碰上全国大选,党选将会照常进行。今年年底,该党需要举行全国和州级选举,一般上,全国党员代表大会每三年选举一次,而州党员代表大会则是每两年举行一次。

    有资格出席这次特大的党代表人数为602人,惟出席者只有228人,不过也超过法定人数,即25%的代表或152人。

    在特大表决后,民主行动党正式进入备战状态,以便能够在下一届大选迎战国阵。

    虽然如此,根据《东方日报》周六的报道,民主行动党前雪州主席王志坚质疑这次特大的动机,指这是某些领袖为了巩固自身地位而举办。

    林冠英在记者招待会,对王志坚的说法不愿置评。他说:“党给管道和机会党员发表意见,为什么不在党内讲,而在党外讲?”

    竞选54个国席和115个州席

    民主行动党各州委员会已建议在来届大选在全国各地竞选54个国会议席,包括沙巴和砂拉越,以及115个州议席,不包括砂拉越州,并且把主力集中在槟城、霹雳、雪兰莪、吉隆坡、及森美兰州。

    由于该党将在来届大选跟人民公正党合作,因此,到时两党竞选的国、州议席会如何分配,还要两党商讨过后才能够定夺。

    他说:“我们希望可以跟国阵来个一对一正面交锋,而且,我相信两党所攻打的选区应该不会重叠,除非是回教党也攻打同样选区,否则不大会出现三角战的情况。”

    不过,林冠英却不愿透露两党议席分配的,同时也不透露他会上阵哪个国、州议席,只表示本身肯定会上阵。

    可以肯定的是,民主行动党在来届应该会继续攻打该党一般上攻打的议席,另外,可能会在沙巴和砂拉越竞选一些新选区。

    林冠英在致词时也列出了六大合作的主导原则,准备与尊重基本人权的所有团体或政党合作。这六大原则分别是:

    一、接受马来西亚国族的概念;

    二、尊重马来语为官方玉文,同时公平对待和提升母语教育;

    三、接纳1957年独立宪法的社会契约,即马来西亚不是一个回教国;

    四、以一个综合绩效、需求、制造财富和公平分配财富的政策来取代腐败的新经济政策;

    五、追求卓越与平等机会的教育制度;

    六、环境保护与发展并重。

    林冠英说,回教党的斗争一直以来都希望成立回教国。很明显的,这项议程似乎违反了这六大原则中的第三项。而林冠英也表示,民主行动党在来届大选不会跟回教党合作。

    安华:搁置回教国议题

    人民公正党顾问安华依布拉欣(Anwar Ibrahim),当天也受邀发表闭门演讲,跟行动党代表进行交流。

    安华(左图左)在接受记者提问时表示:“我们看到两党之间有更良好的合作关系,我们会进一步讨论有关政策、语言、教育、新经济政策等课题。”

    在依约州议席补选中,安华感激民主行动党倾力协助人民公正党的候选人获得胜利,并认为,两党能够以依约的合作为起点。他更把两党的合作看成是“非比寻常的开始”。

    他说:“人民公正党现在是以跟行动党有密切合作关系为基础,同时公正党也会跟回教党寻求合作,但是我们会搁置任何引发他人焦虑的课题,譬如说,回教国的课题。”

    安华说:“我们的正在建立一个更正面的合作关系,只要国营电视台(RTM)、第三电视和巫统报章不要刻意歪曲事实就行。”

    备战工作尚不足

    另一方面,林冠英坦承,该党州委会的备战工作尚未展开,而且该党在地方因素、各阶层领导的准备程度和竞选机关方面落后他人。

    他说:“虽然现有的政治气候有利于在野党,但是当政府在大选分发政治糖果时,这个情况会因为选民短暂的失忆而改变,因为人民是善忘的。”

    而且,若该党要让行动党成为选民的选择,必须展现出他们是值得被选、能够满足公众的期望。而不是因为选民不满国阵的施政,而投选在野党。

    因此,他提出了四“广”工作,以成为该党在来届大选的主要指标:

    一、广泛登记新选民;

    二、广泛招揽自愿人士和党员;

    三、广泛销售《火箭报》,以突破媒体封锁;

    四、广泛推动与地方上的选民、社团和媒体的互动。
