A political critic rebuked DAP and its secretary-general Lim Guan Eng as hypocrites for calling the four elected representatives from Malacca who had left the party as “traitors and sore losers.”

Previously, noted Azizi Safar the same Guan Eng had openly welcomed Mohamad Sabu, better known as Mat Sabu, and other PAS elected representatives to severe ties with their party to form a new political entity, namely Parti Amanah Negara.

“Isn’t this hypocrisy of the highest order?

“Guan Eng openly welcomed PAS leaders and members to leave their party and to join either Amanah or PKR.

“Isn’t this was also an act of betrayal to the party and people, and the trust they had on these party hoppers?

“Guan Eng embraced Mat Sabu and his friends who left PAS and formed Amanah after losing in party election.

“Aren’t Mat Sabu and his friends sore losers too?” asked Azizi in a statement today.

Kota Melaka MP Sim Tong Him and, assemblymen Goh Leong San of Duyong, Lim Jak Wong of Bachang and Chin Choon Seong of Kesidang have all quitted DAP last Sunday.

They cited loss of confidence with party leadership, party political pact with Pribumi and its chairman Mahathir Mohamad, and obliteration of party principles merely to grab power as main reasons for their exit from the party.

Azizi said for Guan Eng – “it’s ok so long they hopped party in my favour. They are traitors, sore losers and bad characters if the jumped against my interests.”

He said Guan Eng’s statement proved the political hypocrisy and double-standards practised by DAP.

“The DAP is ever ready to trade its principles, if at all it has any, for power,” he said, adding that the DAP had now transformed from a socialism-based party to a capitalist party.
