KUALA LUMPUR – The Ministers in Pakatan Harapan (PH) should reach a consensus on not attending conferences based on race and religion, said the Deputy Secretary-General of DAP, Nga Kor Ming.
He said, PKR has endorsed that the leadership of Pakatan Harapan should not attend the conference solely based on race and religion when Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim chose not to attend the Malay Dignity Congress on 6 October.
“It was clear that the Malay Dignity Congress was a fully ‘racial’ political stage with political agenda.
“It will not benefit the development of the nation,” he said in an interview with the China Press when asked if DAP is concerned about the appearance of Prime Minister and Ministers in the Malay Dignity Congress.
“I believe that the elites and those moderate and open minded people will agree with my statement.
”I will also not attend the congress if anyone wishes to organise a Chinese Dignity Congress to challenge the other races. To me, this is a backward movement and is unsuitable for the vision of a New Malaysia,” said Kor Ming.
On another note, Kor Ming, the Deputy Speaker of Dewan Rakyat said, the recognition of the Unified Examination Certificate (UEC) is more important that the meeting between United Chinese School Committees’ Association of Malaysia (Dong Zong) and the Prime Minister.
“Meeting the Prime Minister or not is the secondary issue. Sometimes, meetings are merely to meet the media’s needs,” he said.
Kor Ming said, he would prefer to see a more practical result, including, the allocation of RM15 million to Chinese private schools in Budget 2020, compared to organising a meeting.
He also slammed UMNO for trying to poison the minds of the public by alleging that the UEC is based on the Taiwanese education model and is centralised on China.
“UEC is recognised by 600 universities worldwide. The graduates of UEC are sourced by the universities in Singapore.
“UEC is a local product and is the pride of Malaysia,” he said.
Kor Ming also took the chance to criticise MCA as the party which has disappointed the people and now, all they could do is finding small faults of others. -MalaysiaGazette
