According to Buletin TV3, Mahdzir (above) told reporters in Kuala Nerang, Kedah yesterday that DAP was fielding Malay candidates in seats where it would be tough for them to win. "It is part of their tactic to show that they are multi-ethnic. However, everyone knows party decisions are made by a small group who are Chinese-centric.
"They can say they nominated Malay candidates. If the candidates lose, it will still show that (DAP) have done something to be fair to all ethnic groups," he said.
So far, DAP has announced six Malays as MP candidates - Syahredzan Johan (Bangi), Tengku Zulpuri Shah Raja Puji (Lipis), Sheikh Umar Bagharib Ali (Ayer Hitam), Young Syefura Othman (Bentong), Zulhazmi Shariff (Jerai), Fatin Zulaikha Zaidi (Mersing) and Syerleena Abdul Rashid (Bukit Bendera).
Of the six, three were fielded for seats where Harapan are the incumbent (Bangi, Bentong and Bukit Bendera).
Purple Occa 8200 : Mahadzir do you know what's a puppet? You have one now as the caretaker PM. To see if the DAP malay candidates are real puppet, why not you organise a debate between your caretaker PM with this 6 so called puppet you claim, individually. Let the whole Malaysia know what puppet means. Would you or your caretaker PM dares.?
Koel : Yakah? You should know. Just like your component parties. People living in glass houses should not throw stones.
ScallopJilatDedak : Better than your ultra racist party that don't even have any NM candidate, no NM member. Malu lah..
