Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General and MP for Bagan Lim Guan Eng, on 19th February 2013 in Kuala Lumpur.

I have communicated with PKR head Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and both of us agree that PKR Johor Chair Datuk Seri Chua Jui Meng and DAP Johor State Committee Chairman Sdr. Dr. Boo Cheng Hau shall refrain from making further public comments on the relationship between the Johor state leaderships of DAP and PKR, especially on the contentious issue of seat negotiations.

Both state leaders shall also consult first with the respective top party leadership before making any public statements on seat allocations between both parties for the coming general elections.

The very visible public discord between both the Johor state leaderships of Parti Keadilan Rakyat and DAP have been exploited by all mainstream media, especially those controlled by BN. Such negative publicity is not desirable in the lead up to the general election and will only delight BN and disappoint PR supporters hoping for a real breakthrough in this BN fortress state.

The DAP central leadership appreciates the contribution of Sdr. Dr. Boo and acknowledges his frustrations on being dictated to, in the relationship between DAP and PKR in Johor. However such matters, no matter how unjust and frustrating, should not be expressed in the public domain unless all avenues for discussion internally between PKR and DAP have been exhausted.

As such discussions are still continuing, leaders, members and supporters of DAP, PKR and Pakatan Rakyat are advised to express their views through internal channels in order not to provide ammunition for our political opponents.

The party central leadership shall actively convey the sentiments and justification of DAP Johor in the final seat negotiations which will be ultimately decided by top leaders between PKR and DAP. The national seat negotiations among Pakatan Rakyat component parties are still ongoing and DAP is represented by a team led by National Deputy Chairman and Election Committee Chairman Sdr. Tan Kok Wai. Any disputed seats shall be addressed by top 3 leaders of PR.
