GEORGE TOWN: Parti Cinta Malaysia (PCM) today criticised Pakatan Harapan leaders for once again claiming that the 14th general election will be the dirtiest election in Malaysian history.
PCM deputy president Datuk Huan Cheng Guan said the opposition, particularly DAP, had without fail since 1990, said every single election was the dirtiest in the nation's history.
He said it was their normal recycled story and propaganda with the approach of every general election in a bid to win voters' sympathy.
"Pakatan, especially DAP leaders, can manipulate everything. They have been repeating that from one election to another.
"If it is true that every election is the dirtiest, then how did they manage to capture Selangor and Penang? They had also captured Perak, Kedah and Terengganu in the past.
"If every election is the dirtiest, then there would be no (Datuk Seri) Azmin Ali and Lim Guan Eng as the Selangor Menteri Besar and Penang Chief Minister respectively.
"Only if Pakatan or DAP wins, then the election will be considered clean," he said.
Huan also went on to say that certain leaders from Pakatan and DAP were serial liars.
"They don't have principles and dignity...they are the worst political animals."
Huan said Barisan Nasional needed more leaders to counter and expose the lies and falsehoods of Pakatan and DAP.
"If you don't counter and expose their lies, when they keep repeating the lies, then the rakyat will take it as somethign that is true," he said, noting that the problem now is many leaders with positions in BN, including the Cabinet, are just playing safe.
DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang had in his past blog posting claimed the 14th general election was going to be dirtiest in the nation’s history.
Even PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar, during a visit to Penanti, Penang, gave a mandate to all party members to prepare themselves for what she called "the dirtiest general election in Malaysian history".
And most recently, Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin had said that Pakatan Harapan had reasons to be worried that the 14th general election would be the dirtiest election in Malaysia’s history.
