Joint Statement by 30 DAP Members of Parliament in Parliament on Tuesday, 2nd March 2010:
DAP Members of Parliament declares our whole-hearted support for Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as the Parliamentary Opposition Leader and the Prime Minister designate for Pakatan Rakyat
The Members of Parliament (MPs) of DAP would like to declare our unflinching support for Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as the Parliamentary Opposition Leader and the Prime Minister designate for Pakatan Rakyat.
We view the recent spate of resignations by a handful of MPs from PKR as a short term anomaly which does not in anyway reflect the overwhelming support which the rakyat has given, and has continued to provide to PKR and Pakatan Rakyat.
These resignations are the works of unscrupulous politicians who have betrayed the trust of their voters due to their inability to circumvent Pakatan Rakyat's policies of competency, accountability and transparency for their own self-interest.
They have been baited by a mischievous Barisan Nasional whose intent is to destroy Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and PKR in conjunction with his political persecution in the Malaysian courts for sodomy.
Hence as comrade-in-arms in Pakatan Rakyat, DAP will provide Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and PKR with our fullest cooperation and support to ensure that we will emerge from this episode together stronger and better positioned to take over Putrajaya in the 13th General Elections.
