The re-election of the DAP’s CEC on the 29th of September, it shows that the DAP did not accomplish anything at all. With those who have won in the earlier election, retaining their spot and the absence of more people is reported. Thus making the DAP grass root feel cheated again. Many DAP state leaders are disappointed with the iron fist style of governance by the DAP central committee.
The animosity is also felt by the Kedah DAP, where the leaders are of the state division are dissolving the state DAP committee that was elected democratically and forming a new interim committee without any good reason.
This is why the DAP state Chairman Lee Guan Aik has to let go of his position to Christopher Zairil Lim.
The appointment of Christopher Zairil as DAP Chairman in Kedah means that the DAP is ignoring their grassroots and do not respect or try to understand the feeling of their committee and ordinary members in Kedah. It is also an act of fraud by calling Christopher Zairil as Malay. The fact is, Christopher is 100% pure Chinese and he is the step-son of Tan Sri Khir Johari who married his mother when Christopher already in his teens. Christopher tells reporters that he and his family, including his father are not comfortable in mixing with the Malays or practising the Malay culture.
But today, Christopher is trying his hard to become a Malay man, to ensure that he will gain votes for Pakatan Rakyat in the upcoming by-election in Sungai Limau.
What interesting is that how PAS members accept Christopher in Sungai Limau. Are they going to let DAP lie just because the DAP are helping PAS.
Sg. Limau has only 3% of Chinese voters, and Christopher as a Chinese will not help much, but Zairil is. Christopher will go to Sg Limau and introduce himself as “Zairil Khir Johari” just to gain more votes.
Basically, the Chinese in Kedah is different from the Chinese in Penang. Almost all of the Chinese in Kedah fluent in the Kedahan slang and lives with the Malays in harmony. The racial unity in Kedah is so strong as Kedahan is known for their pleasant and friendly nature.
Lately the spirit “harmony” among Kedahan (and Malaysia too) was disturbed, as the DAP is growing stronger in Malaysia. However, we believe that the Kedahan Chinese can evaluate the character of the DAP who are willing to sacrifice their grassroot and clearly abusing their power in the party. They are willing to lie, cheat and steal to ensure that their political survival will not be disturbed. The appointment of Christopher Zairil is the proof that all of this matter were practiced by the DAP.
Thus, will the people of Sungai Limau is willing to give power to PAS who are currently best buddies with the DAP?
We believe that the voters of Sungai Limau, even the people of Kedah as whole, that comes from many political parties are smarter to understand the values of Pakatan Rakyat and Barisan Nasional. Kedah does not need the DAP but they need BN to continue their peace loving ways.
DAP is a part of PAS, giving a win for PAS in Sg Limau meaning it is victories for the DAP as they are connected through the Pakatan Rakyat.
