PH in S’wak to use PKR or DAP logo for GE14 after meeting next week

Image result for PKR or DAP logo for GE14Parti Amanah Negara and Democratic Action Party (DAP) branches in Sarawak will only know by next week after a meeting of Sarawak Pakatan Harapan (PH) on whether they will be using a PKR or DAP logo as a common symbol for the upcoming general election.

According to state Amanah chief Fizuan Zaidi, the state PH would be calling for a meeting next week to decide on the logo issue.

When contacted yesterday, state DAP chairman Chong Chieng Jen said: “Sarawak DAP to decide. That’s the autonomy we have”.

However, DAP headquarters in Peninsular Malaysia has decided that their candidates there would be using PKR (Parti Keadilan Rakyat) logo as the Pakatan Harapan common symbol, ‘because PH is still not registered as a political party’.

DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng told the press yesterday that election candidates of the PH coalition would be using PKR logo in the forthcoming general election in Peninsular Malaysia.

This mean that the DAP logo bearing the rocket will not be used for the first time since 1969 in Peninsular Malaysia.

Lim said the DAP, was however, letting the DAP in Sarawak decide for themselves which logo they want to use, a Malaysiakini news portal reported yesterday.

“For the first time since 1969, no ‘rocket’ in the Peninsular. The rocket is one of the most recognisable political logos in Malaysia. It has made an appearance in every general election since 1969,” Malaysiakini reported.

Lim was quoted as saying that DAP agreed to use a common logo for the 14th national polls, but the decision would not affect Sarawak and Sabah DAP ‘due to their autonomy’.

Lim, the Penang Chief Minister conceded that the move might have an impact on its long-time supporters.

“We cannot deny the impact, but it is important for us not only to have one-to-one fights with BN, but also to have one logo against BN since they have undemocratically and unjustly refused to register PH – both the party and the logo. We have no choice,” he said.

Lim said this was a difficult decision and would be the first time DAP is contesting in an election without using its own logo.

  1. After 60 years in power, Umno is still playing the race and religious card.

    First, they keep working at DAP that it was a Chinese chauvinist party. When that didn’t work too well because more and more Malays are joining the party, they now say it is the Christians who want to dominate.

    Come on, have some originality in your approach when appealing for votes. These two subjects are so overplayed, they sound worse than broken records.

  2. Looks like Najib is throwing “dedak” wherever he goes or to whichever group of audience he is talking to, as though there is no tomorrow. With Najib, there is no long term and sustainable solution to deal with issues except to win hearts with his “cash is king” and “I scratch your back and you scratch mine” approach. Seriously, every right-minded should ask “if this is kind of leader that we ought to vote for”.

  3. We are probably one of the few countries in the world where scandal-tainted politicians who can’t explain the money trail leading to them or their kin can be continuously put up as leading candidates in recurring elections.

    Basically, it is a message to the people saying they simply don’t care what you think of them because they (the politicians) always think the people are fools that can be cheated continuously.

    Wake up people, don’t remain fools for the rest of your lives.

  4. Dr Tan Seng Kiaw , a veteran of DAP and good MP until he gave up his credibility, integrity and righteousness by clearing Najib of any wrongdoing and involvement in 1MDB. Even idiots would know where he was leaning after he made that unbelievable statement. So it was no surprise that DAP chose to sideline him in GE14. It was no surprise too that this disgraceful ex MP chose to side with Najib and bashed DAP for forgoing its Rocket logo in GE14. It reminds me of another hypocrite, Tengku Aziz. Sadly these two respected men before had chosen the path of greeds and dirty money to retire by betraying all right thinking Malaysians who once trusted them to fight corruptions in Najib administration.

  7. I feel it is time that DAP, PKR, Amanah and PPBM prove to all Malaysians that PH the government in waiting can unite and work for the common good and future of all Malaysians by sacrificing the Rocket and Amanah logos in view that PPBM was suspended by the ROS and because the ROS has followed the instruction of Najib not to allow PH to register a common logo. Malaysians salute the bold and wise move of PH leadership to agree to use PKR logo to fight UMNO Baru controlled BN and I pray that the PH leaders in Sarawak and Sabah shall adopt the wisdom of their central leadership. Lets remove the highly corrupted and kleptocrat Najib and UMNO Baru controlled BN in GE14.
