IPOH: Dec 27, 2008
Chinese voters in Kuala Terengganu will not be swayed by the hudud issue in the upcoming by-election, DAP vice-chairman M. Kulasegaran said.
The Chinese voters were mature enough to see that the issue was being played up by the Barisan Nasional, he said.
“The matter has been debated many times over. There is nothing new to it,” he said on Thursday after opening the DAP service centre of Jelapang assemblyman Hee Yit Foong.
He said he respected PAS for wanting to implement the hudud laws as setting up Islamic government was the party’s aspiration.
But Kulasegaran, who is also Ipoh Barat MP, said that PAS would not be able to get the two-thirds majority to amend the Federal Constitution.
