KUALA LUMPUR (Feb 27): DAP veteran Lim Kit Siang (pictured) said today that he agreed that the idea of a national unity government is good but it cannot be established based on “treachery, deceit, corruption, betrayal of the people’s mandate or by promoting national disunity”.
He said that it is “foolish and short-sighted to purportedly establish a national unity government by destroying the Pakatan Harapan Government”.
“The ideal way to establish a national unity government is to build on the Pakatan Harapan coalition and convince other political parties and entities to come together in the larger interest of the nation to build a New Malaysia – based on the Pakatan Harapan mandate in the 14th General Election for a New Malaysia,” Lim explained in a statement.
The law maker for Iskandar Puteri added that “Nobody rejects the idea of a national unity government” but the “first task is to restore the Pakatan Harapan government”.
“This is the immediate challenge for Malaysia.”
