Media statement by Steven Sim, MP for Bukit Mertajam

Gerakan is clearly still taking Malaysians and Penangites as fools when its Penang chief, Teng Chang Yeow asked DAP Secretary General, Saudara Lim Guan Eng to cut ties with Nazri Abdul Aziz over the latter’s rude remark against Robert Kuok. (Source: https://www.malaysiakini.com/news/414150)
Let me remind Gerakan that they are the ones working very hard to help UMNO stay in power, ensuring people like Nazri becomes Minister.
On the other hand, DAP and Pakatan Harapan aim to topple not only Nazri but also the entire UMNO and Barisan Nasional to save Malaysia.
What kind of logic is Gerakan and Teng employing?
Even after their major defeats in 2008 and 2013, Gerakan is still underestimating Malaysians and Penangites.
They have shown to be unwilling to cut ties with the biggest kleptocrat in the world because Gerakan cannot bear to give up their lucrative positions as ministers, in government-linked corporations (GLs) and other federal government appointments.
Now Gerakan is asking DAP to cut ties with an UMNO minister whom Gerakan worked very hard to put in place. What a joke!
