MM Online - Why are you even still with BN? Just leave already, Nazri tells MCA (extracts):
KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 25 — MCA should just leave Barisan Nasional (BN) like other former component parties, Datuk Seri Nazri Abdul Aziz said today.
Nazri, who is also BN secretary-general, said MCA should follow the footsteps of previous BN component parties like Parti Gerakan Rakyat Malaysia and several Sarawak-based parties if they did not like BN.
“MCA in our coalition? I thought they wanted to dissolve BN and in the previous by-election, they contested in Balakong under their own party banner.
“Constructively they are not part of BN because they do not agree with us,” he told reporters during a press conference in Menara Dato Onn, PWTC here.
“Honestly I do not understand what they are up to. I do not know. I think they need to explain to us,” he said.
Nazri Aziz has had a long running war of words with MCA, wakakaka. He sneered (obviously still does) at the MCA for not being able to pull its weight in BN as long as several years back, when the DAP started growing stronger and stronger in attracting the majority of the Chinese Malaysian voters away.
Nazri was pretty blunt and open about his views, declaring it'd be better for UMNO to "do business" with a muscular-growing DAP than with an enervated MCA.
Politically-usefulness-wise Nazri has been right in his assessment though coalition-wise very undiplomatic to a BN member, wakakaka. And everyone in politics knew and knows Nazri Aziz favours the DAP especially his matey Lim GE.
Nazri is now rubbing it in, in responding to MCA and Gerakan for calling him a racist in a Semenyih campaign speech - for more, see FMT's I wasn’t being racist, says Nazri over controversial speech in Semenyih.
