Media statement (2) by Lim Guan Eng in Kuala Lumpur on Wednesday, 12th October 2011:
DAP confirms that a PR meeting comprising of DAP, PKR and PAS top leaders were held in DAP Headquarters in the evening of 10 October 2011
The PR meeting reaffirmed the common policy stand of the three parties as contained in the PR Common Policy Framework 2009, Buku Jingga 2010 and PR Joint Statement 28th September 2011 that hudud is not the common agenda of PR for the forthcoming general election, which will also be the policy basis of PR after the next general election. Any change of policy can only be reached by common consensus with the agreement of all the three parties.
The Enakmen Kanun Jenayah Syariah II Negeri Kelantan (1993) was discussed at the meeting. At the meeting, DAP stressed the party's consistent stand in not agreeing with the hudud law and explained that the hudud law is not in line with the Federal Constitution. The meeting concluded with both DAP and PAS agreeing to disagree on the hudud law.
As the hudud law is not mentioned in the PR Common Policy Framework or in Buku Jingga, it is therefore not PR policy. Only policies mentioned in the Common Policy Framework, Buku Jingga or agreed to by all 3 parties will be implemented in a PR government.
Amongst DAP leaders present were National Chair Karpal Singh, Lim Kit Siang and myself; PAS leaders present included PAS Deputy President Mat Sabu, Secretary-General Mustafa Ali and Kelantan EXCO members whilst Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim, PKR Deputy President Azmin Ali and Perak PKR Chair Dr Mohd Nur Manuty represented PKR.
