Stop making statements on behalf of Pakatan, Karpal tells Hadi


(Bernama) – DAP national chairman Karpal Singh has called upon PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang to stop making further statements on behalf of Pakatan Rakyat.

Karpal Singh said Abdul Hadi did not have the right to speak on behalf of Pakatan Rakyat especially when saying that the coalition would implement hudud laws if it comes to power.

The Bukit Gelugor MP said Abdul Hadi’s statement was purely rhetoric and devoid of any justification.

“It is regretted of late (Abdul) Hadi has been making statements with the sole purpose of withdrawing them later. I have said it before and I say it again, that hudud cannot be implemented in Malaysia as it would be clearly unconstitutional,” he said in a statement here, today.

Meanwhile, Karpal also thanked Tunku Abdul Aziz Tunku Ibrahim for his contributions as the DAP vice-chairman and it’s senator.

“He is a man of principle and integrity. His credentials are flawless and worthy of emulation,” said Karpal.

The DAP did not extend the tenure of Tunku Abdul Aziz Tunku Ibrahim as a member of the Senate following his statements which deplored street demonstrations in the city.
