‘Stay home if you refuse to vote DAP!’

UMNO members who find it difficult to cast votes for election candidates from former rival DAP in next month’s state elections would be better off abstaining, Parti Amanah Negara’s communications director Khalid Abdul Samad said.

He said that it was a better option than voting for Perikatan Nasional (PN), Mingguan Malaysia, the Sunday edition of Utusan Malaysia, reported today.

Khalid said DAP candidates are usually fielded in non-Malay majority seats, but acknowledged that there are Umno members who find it difficult to vote for their former political rival.

“But if that is what happens, if it feels like it’s very difficult to vote for DAP candidates who are the unity government’s candidates, better not to come out and vote,” he was quoted as saying.
