Lim pours fuel into fire over BN’s recipe for electoral catastrophe

PUCHONG: DAP veteran Lim Kit Siang has poured fuel into the fire by jumping into the bandwagon by describing Pekan MP Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s appointment as BN advisory council chairman as a recipe for electoral catastrophe to the coalition.

“I have no objection to this phenomenon, for it is the recipe for electoral catastrophe, as it is based on the fallacy that Malaysians are fervent supporters of the toxic combination of kleptocracy and a theocracy in which lies are permissible and corruption is no sin – as the greatest supporter of Najib is none other than the PAS President Datuk Seri Hadi Awang.”

Lim was also surprised by Najib’s appointment since Najib took up the position despite being implicated in the scandal involving 1Malaysia Development Board (1MDB).

“The global 1MDB scandal has not prevented the appointment of the 1MDB global kleptocrat Najib as Barisan Nasional adviser, which has created quite a ruckus in UMNO itself but not in MCA or MIC.”

Yesterday, two Umno leaders – Padang Rengas MP Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz and Rembau MP Khairy Jamaluddin Abu Bakar openly criticised the appointment. Nazri even claimed that Najib asked for the top BN post.

Najib have since trained his guns on Nazri.

On that note, Lim shifted his attention to DAP’s traditional foe – MCA. He accused MCA’s sole MP and president, Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong of attempting to prevent discussions on 1MDB last week even though Deutsche Bank has become the latest banking institution to be implicated in the scandal.

“But in Malaysia, there are still leaders who are fighting every inch of the way to maintain the veil of secrecy over the 1MDB scandal, playing to the discredited script of the former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak until he was ignominiously ousted from power on May 9, 2018.

“One such example was the attempt last week by the Barisan Nasional, through their MCA Member of Parliament, to prevent any discussion of the 1MDB scandal in Parliament.”
