Breaking its long silence in a continuing episode of politicians jostling for power in Putrajaya, DAP today reiterated its “no Umno” rule when it comes to seeking political alliances.

The party also warned others against speaking on its behalf in the wake of recent developments signalling closer ties between PKR’s Anwar Ibrahim and several Umno leaders.

“I wish to stress that no outside party has the right to do so,” said DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng, adding that his recent statements in Sabah had already cleared the air about the party’s stand in the wake of recent attempts by Anwar to topple the Muhyiddin Yassin government.

This comes after Amanah’s Khalid Samad claimed that Anwar had enough support to do so, including from 42 DAP MPs.

Lim said any stand by DAP would only come from him, the chairman or the deputy chairman.

He also urged Muhyiddin to state clearly whether there would be changes in his Cabinet as speculated on social media, adding that battling the Covid-19 pandemic should be a priority.

“Let us focus on uniting Malaysians regardless of race and religion, instead of divisive racial and religious rhetoric, to support our heroic frontliners to win this battle against Covid-19,” he said.

Last week, MalaysiaNow reported that Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and his predecessor Najib Razak had written to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong expressing support for Anwar in the PKR leader’s plan to topple the Perikatan Nasional government, of which Umno is a part.

In their joint letter, the duo also claimed that “a number of Umno MPs” would back them, without providing specific names.
