PKR Believes Pakatan Will Rise From The Ashes While PAS And DAP Think Otherwise

Just like a phoenix, Pakatan Rakyat will rise from the ashes, said a PKR leader in response to DAP’s declaration that the coalition is dead.

PKR’s strategic director Sim Tze Tzin said the coalition will be having a meeting either tonight or tomorrow to look for a solution to the problems they’ve been having.

“We saw it coming but Pakatan will rise again.”

However, DAP lawmaker Charles Santiago said that there is no recovering from the move taken by PAS, which during its Muktamar earlier this month had approved for a motion to cut ties with the secular based party to be discussed by its central committee and Syura Council.

“This is best move for us as PAS has made its decision so there is no point in us lingering around.

“PAS left us with no choice but to declare Pakatan Rakyat dead.”

PAS’ former central working committee member Khalid Samad said the next step for the pact, if there was to be one, is to come up with a new name.

This is because “Pakatan Rakyat” is a coalition consisting of three component parties and should any party leave, the pact cannot go on the same way it always has.

“Without either one of the component parties, there is no Pakatan Rakyat. So the next step has to be decided by the leadership.

“Will we form a new coalition comprising of only two parties or will we go our separate ways and be individual parties the way we were before.

“But either way, Pakatan Rakyat is dead,” he said to The Rakyat Post.

DAP leaders, party supremo Lim Kit Siang and secretary-general Lim Guan Eng, have said that Pakatan Rakyat is dead and done with, blaming PAS as having killed the opposition coalition.
