PETALING JAYA: The only political parties worth their salt are Parti Amanah Rakyat (Amanah) and DAP because all the others, opposition and ruling parties alike, are merely interested in obtaining votes in the next general election, said former minister Zaid Ibrahim.
Taking to social media sites Twitter and Facebook to vent his frustrations over the calibre of political parties in the country, Zaid said, “Let’s eat drink and be merry; don’t waste time trying to understand what Umno/ PAS/ PKR leaders are saying.
“The coherent ones are Amanah and DAP. Others are just counting numbers.”
He said Amanah members were “the only sensible Malays” in the country who were concerned about nipping “hate and fascist politics” in the bud and noted that Umno, PAS and PKR were only interested in becoming the ruling government and enjoying the “perks” that came with the status.
He also slammed Umno for “peddling apartheid and hatred” and said the party should be cleansed of radicals dwelling within it, after which the radical approaches of the country’s muftis and Jakim should be addressed.
“Government should never be led by radicals of all types.
“Government must be led by liberals, democrats; those who want to live in peace; who live and let live,” he said. – FMT
