PAS are One with UMNO

The DAP on Sunday called on Malaysian voters NOT to consider PAS as an opposition party, but as an ally of the ruling BN (read, UMNO) in the upcoming 14th General Election.
 
Their FT chairmperson Tan Kok Wai said people should not be misled into believing there would be a three-cornered fight if a constituency sees a race between candidates from PAS, BN and a Pakatan Harapan party.
 
He explained that PAS are not a real opposition party because the party had already allied themselves with Najib Razak and UMNO.
 
His take on this relationship was different: “If there is a PAS candidate, an UMNO candidate and a candidate from Pakatan Harapan, then that’s still a one-on-one race, not a three-cornered fight”.
 
Meaning, PAS + UMNO vs PH = 1 vs 1.
 
On Monday, 1MDB declared at the London Stock Exchange that Abu Dhabi-based International Petroleum Investment Company are to receive $602,725,000 by July 31 and a further $602,725,000 by December 31 – as their debt settlement with Abu Dhabi-based International Petroleum Investment Company (IPIC).
 
1MDB and Malaysia’s MoF Inc (Minister of Finance Incorporated) also undertook to assume responsibility for all future interest and principal payments on the two bonds issued by 1MDB that were guaranteed by both 1MDB and IPIC, the announcement added.
 
On the same day too, 1MDB confirmed the proposed payments as part of arbitration proceedings between the two parties before the London Court of International Arbitration.
 
Najib Razak must clarify – where is the money coming from? Are taxpayers’ money being used to pay off IPIC?
 
Malaysians need to know. We want to know. We demand an answer!
