DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang said loud and clear that DAP will not work with kleptocrats but would remain open to fostering cooperation with those of integrity regardless of political affiliation.
Commenting on the recent Perak Menteri Besar (MB) crisis, which saw the third swearing-in of a new MB post GE14, and the possibility of DAP working with UMNO at the time, Lim Kit Siang said, “We will not cooperate with kleptocrats and those who abused their powers for personal gain, but we must be open-minded and flexible to cooperate with Malaysians of integrity.”
According to Lim Kit Siang, DAP was founded 54 years ago to make Malaysia succeed as a world-class nation in various fields, not against any race, language, religion, or culture.
“DAP is determined to make the mission a success, remain true and steadfast on our principles, so we always remain a principled political party.”
Lim Kit Siang spoke to reporters who came hours after UMNO assemblyman Datuk Saarani Mohamad was sworn in as Perak’s 14th Menteri Besar, which ended a six-day turmoil that almost saw DAP working with UMNO to form a new government.
