DAP did not boycott Batu Talam by-election, Liow Tiong Lai should not mix up!
Liow should be concise and accurate in his statement as he should not treat all Opposition parties as the same. DAP has since Batu Talam by-election clarified that it is not the decision of DAP to boycott any by-election or General Election. DAP did not contest in the Batu Talam by-election simply because the state seat is not our traditional seat and we did not even contest during the 2004 General Election. To say that DAP’s stand is inconsistent is something extremely malicious.
Furthermore, the DAP has clarified that if a by-election were to be held in a seat that the DAP had previously contested, then naturally the DAP will not boycott but to contest in the by-election. This is also why we contested in the Machap by-election this time.
As for Batu Talam, the seat was previously contested by UMNO and PAS, therefore the DAP did not contest in the by-election. Liow Tiong Lai shall not issue such malicious statement prior to the Machap by-election.
If Liow Tiong Lai does not know how to differentiate between “not contest” and “boycott”, or he chooses to mix up between DAP and KeADILan, then he should immediately sign up for History of Local Politics class with MCA Party School so that he can have a quick catch-up before making more mistakes in his statement.
