KUALA LUMPUR, April 13 — Every vote for the DAP is akin to giving power to the Pakatan Harapan (PH) pact to eliminate the purported Malay “special rights” and the “uniqueness” of Islam, according to Umno supreme council member Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

The incumbent Bera MP said DAP’s strategy was to get Malay votes in GE14 by fielding Malay candidates in Chinese and Malay majority constituencies, Utusan Malaysia reported today.

“DAP is still being controlled by its adviser Lim Kit Siang, secretary-general Lim Guan Eng and whoever is aligned to their cause.

“Their concept of Malaysian Malaysia aims to eliminate the special rights of the Malays and bumiputera while discarding the uniqueness of Islam.

“Even though Malay candidates are contesting, the motto is still being championed by them,” he was quoted as saying.

Ismail Sabri said Malay candidates were used as a tool to confuse and cheat the race to give their votes to DAP in order for the party to secure power in the May 9 polls and urged voters not to be tricked.

The DAP has repeatedly explained that its Malaysian Malaysia concept is similar to the government’s “Bangsa Malaysia” policy, which is to strengthen nationhood, regardless of their ethnicity.
