DAP wants clarity from plethora of contradiction and not game of numbers

Media Statement
by Lim Kit Siang

(Petaling Jaya,  Friday): I refer to the Malaysiakini report last night under the heading “Keadilan can win Chinese support without DAP’s help: Azmin” and the various strong terms used by Parti Keadilan Nasional (PKN) leaders.

DAP is not interested in the exchange of  epithets or to indulge in the game of numbers.

What Malaysians want is  clarity from the plethora of conflicting and contradictory claims by different PKN leaders and sources about the voting trends in the Indera Kayangan by-election last Saturday, namely

As PKN leaders are unable to throw light to give clarify to the plethora of conflicting and contradictory claims, which are important not just to DAP but to the Malaysian public, in devising an effective strategy to the two-pronged “killer” election ploy of the Barisan Nasional - the 911 terror card and the Taliban card - we can  let the matter rest there.

Insinuations that I have become “more BN than BN itself” and that I have endorsed the MCA’s  performance or the “dirty tactics” used by the Barisan Nasional in the by-election are not worth attention - especially as it is public knowledge that the DAP had strongly denounced and made even louder protests than PKN against the unfair nightly broadcast of the 90-second BN propaganda footage camouflaged as prime-time news over national television for  three weeks  to manipulate and influence the thinking of the Indera Kayangan voters.
