Malaysia – Following the state election in Johor, DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng said that the party would continue to combat policies that affect people’s lives.
The Bagan MP said that the party would do everything possible to serve the ten seats that they recently won.
“The DAP acknowledges the people’s decision and congratulates the winners.” DAP is hoping that the promises made would be kept. DAP and Pakatan Harapan (PH) will continue to safeguard people’s livelihoods by battling increasing prices, rejecting foreign-source income taxes, and resisting the disproportionate rise in compound penalties for Covid-19 SOPs breaches to RM10,000 for individuals and RM1 million for businesses.
“For the 10 seats won by DAP, DAP will guarantee that our elected members serve the people to the best of their abilities in order to honor the rakyat’s confidence.” “We will do a post-mortem on the four seats DAP lost,” he added.
Lim also said that the previous elected members’ service performance had an impact on the four seats that were lost in the state elections.
“I’ve talked with all four defeated candidates, and they’re all dedicated to serving in their respective areas despite their defeat.”
“Under PH’s “big tent” strategy, DAP and PH must fix our deficiencies, particularly in expressing to the public a unified Opposition to BN,” he said.
Under the Malaysian First principle, Lim said that the party is devoted to protecting, assisting, and defending the rights of all Malaysians, regardless of race or religion.
The BN’s promise of political stability surged throughout Johor as the alliance secured 40 of the 56 seats needed to form the state government.
PH, which includes the PKR, received just 12 seats, while its partner, the Malaysian United Democratic Alliance (Muda), received one seat, and Perikatan Nasional received three seats.
Meanwhile, three new parties, Parti Pejuang Tanah Air (Pejuang), Parti Warisan, and Parti Bangsa Malaysia (PBM), have lost all of their deposits in the 42 seats that were contested.
