Gerakan urges Nga Kor Ming to mind his own business PCA Amendments: Nga should look into the mirror, says Gerakan Press statement by Gerakan Secretary General Dato’ Mah Siew Keong

Gerakan Secretary General Dato’ Mah Siew Keong took a dig at Taiping MP Nga Kor Ming for being ignorant to the fact that 23 Pakatan Rakyat (PR) MPs had controversially gone AWOL during the last Tuesday’s debate on the Prevention of Crime (Amendment and Extension) Bill 2013 as a result the opposition could only muster 66 votes to Barisan Nasional’s 115. Clearly the opposition representatives had failed the people.

“PR especially the questionable Taiping MP should clean up his own backyard before he speaks. Instead of meddling in the internal affairs of other parties, Nga should question the PR representatives who were absent. Those absent included the opposition leader himself, "said Mah.

Mah added that Gerakan will continue to look into the position of its sole representation in the parliament as well as to moot over the next course of action with necessary collective decision be made in the near future in order to represent the people at its best.

Mah said there also have been discussions within BN on the amendments and welcomed the Home Minister's statement that he is willing to engage the Bar council and other stake holders on possible amendments to the act.

"In principle, we agree with Datuk Seri Dr Zahid Hamidi that there is a need for a more comprehensive and stringent law to deal with organised crime. Provisions that affect human rights can always be re-examined and are not cast in stone. Gerakan will moot a sunset clause for the more controversial provisions like the new sections 15A and 19A of the amended PCA. We will continue to work within the BN framework and not seek cheap publicity and compromise public safety. I hope Nga will do the same," Mah asserted.
