There will be no political cooperation between DAP and Umno in gearing up for the 15th general election (GE15), DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng said today.

Lim said the party’s stand had been consistent and that DAP was only willing to cooperate where it would benefit the people.

“As long as it is for the benefit of the people, we are willing to support… it is on an ad hoc basis, on issues related to the people. There is no cooperation on a party-to-party basis with Umno,” he told a press conference today.

He said during the last parliamentary sitting, DAP had not opposed the PAS government’s measures on Covid-19.

“Taking an ad hoc approach is not tantamount to working with Umno, that is still not the case… we are willing to cooperate where it benefits the rakyat, like convening Parliament,” he said.

Lim, who is also MP for Bagan, added that the party would not support the practice of party hopping even if this did not contradict the Federal Constitution, in line with its principle of clean governance.
