PKR camp is playing word games

Kapar MP S. Manikavasagam threaten to quit PKR is the ongoing internal political disputes in PKR. It reflects the political behavior of the politician which lack of political responsibility.

Ironically, the issue of the Kapar MP's threat to leave PKR reflects that the code of ethics for politicians are not only orthodoxy iconic but far more needed to uphold the political moral. It needs courage and a willingness to accept political costs.

The incident show PKR leaders in Selangor were playing word games. They are not united and cold towards each other whereas a few others were arrogant.

The voters need political parties and politicians that can hold responsible for their politics and ethics and not playing word games with them.

As the members of the loose opposition alliance, DAP too disagree with the move of S. Manikavasagam.

DAP chairman Karpal Singh said, the Kapar Member of Parliament should resign as MP and wait another five years before contesting.

He said S. Manikavasagam, who is expected to resign from Parti Keadilan Rakyat before the New Year, was elected as an MP on a PKR ticket.

"People did not elect him in his personal capacity. He has no right to leave PKR and join any other party.

Justify Full "His only other option is to resign so that the people in the constituency can decide what they want," Karpal said.
