PKR’s Rafizi says Pakatan must abandon the ‘big tent’ approach, go solo for GE15
Former PKR MP Rafizi Ramli today said that Pakatan Harapan (PH) must disregard the “big tent” approach and go solo.
(MMO) – Rafizi who recently announced that he will fight for the PKR vice-president post said there is no need for the party to join hands with Parti Pejuang Tanah Air (Pejuang), Parti Warisan Sabah (Warisan), or even Malaysian United Democratic Alliance (Muda) for the 15th general election.
“I don’t see any data from four previous state elections results that (cooperation with other opposition parties) will bring more votes. What is there is a scramble to the existing PH and PKR base voters.
“Just on this basis let’s say 20 per cent are dissatisfied with PKR and PH, then they run to the other Opposition parties, while for us to win, we need to win the hearts of 15, 20 and 30 per cent of voters on the fence who are not hardcore voters of PKR, Umno and PH,” Rafizi told Malay daily Utusan Malaysia.
