... the future of PKR’s partnership with DAP in Sarawak now also looks to be in jeopardy.
DAP’s Sarawak chapter had previously said that it is withdrawing from talks with PKR over seat distribution for the state polls due to the latter party’s ambiguous stand on hudud.
also in the same report:
According to PKR’s elections co-director Nurul Izzah Anwar, her party will focus on 28 state seats in Sarawak for the polls.
[Hope none of the 28 are currently held by DAP, wakakaka]
PKR has also finalised its list of potential candidates, she confirmed, although the state’s opposition parties are still negotiating the seats. [...]
“For Sarawak, we want to champion the ideals of the party to prove that it’s a truly Malaysian party.
“We have also been pushing a narrative to the Sarawak people, that Islam is against racism, that Islam supports a civil state.... and this idea has been well-accepted by our Sarawak leadership,” she said.
It appears that Nurul is promoting the idea of an Islamic State given her emphasis on the support of Islam for a civil state and that the religion is against racism, true or otherwise, depending on our personal experience and perception.
So, has PKR now become an Islamic party like PAS, which may explain why DAP Sarawak has refused to talk with PKR due to the latter's "ambiguous stand on hudud".
What do N Surendran, Sivarasa, Xavier Jayakumar, Tian Chua and my dearest Eli Wong have to say?
