DAP must clarify their position on Hew Kuan Yau’s “prostitute” reference for reporters

I urge DAP to clarify the reference of journalists as “Compensated Dating” made in a facebook posting by its election publicity chief Dr. Hew Kuan Yew, whereby DAP Socialist Youth chief Anthony Loke remarked it was just a political comment and was not the stand of DAP.

Todate, DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng still has not made any comment on the matter leaving it to the lower ranking leaders to play it around to confuse the people.

The DAP Disciplinary Committee head Tan Kok Wai had earlier agreed with Dr Hew’s view stating that the latter was speaking the “truth” and he would not take any action against Dr Hew.  However, now Anthony Loke speaks otherwise. Thus, who really is providing the accurate stand of DAP?

If DAP has no connection whatsoever with the Dr Hew’s statement, then action should be taken against him for misconduct, including instructing him relinquish his party positions.  Nevertheless, Tan Kok Wai says one thing and Anthony Loke says another.  DAP ought to make their stand precise once and for all.

If Dr Hew’s remark does not represent the DAP’s stand although it was supported by Tan Kok Wai, why did Anthony Loke asked Dr. Hew to be self responsible for his own words?

I wish to point out that recently, the statements by several DAP leaders have badly tarnish their party. In addition to the contradictory remarks as stated above, Lim Guan Eng’s political secretary Ng Wei Aik issued an ultimatum to ASLI, the organizer of the coming debate between Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek and Lim Guan Eng. Ng threatened ASLI that if 250 seats as requested by DAP are not provided, they would not guanrantee what will happen.  

In view of these irresponsible words uttered, why is it that nothing has so far been commented by the paramount leader of the DAP Lim Guan Eng as of to date? Is he not trying to be irresponsible?
