He stressed that his party’s political style was the way to build a prosperous nation, saying the politics of multi-racialism is the only path to a united and successful Malaysia. “The continuation of the politics of mono-ethnicity can never unite a plural Malaysia,” he explained. Lim also mentioned how leaders from DAP were dedicated to rebuilding the nation and to serving the people. “DAP leaders are in government because we can play an important role to build a New Malaysia and save Malaysia from becoming a sham democracy, a kakistocracy, a failed state and a global kleptocracy,” he said in reference to the previous government supposedly practicing cronyism. “DAP leaders, whether in government or outside, will have no hesitation in leaving the coalition government if the objective of a New Malaysia is abandoned and will never be as spineless as MCA leaders,” he said. The other four reasons are as below: 1) DAP is a multi-racial party dedicated to the wellbeing and welfare of all races to be found in Malaysia, and not mono-ethnic as in the case of MCA. We represent all Malaysians, whether Chinese, Malays, Indians, Kadazans, Ibans or Orang Asli while the MCA represents or claims to represent only the Chinese in Malaysia. 2) DAP leaders fight for the rights and interests of all racial groups so long as they are Malaysians, while MCA fights or claims to fight for the rights and interests of only the Chinese in Malaysia. This is why DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng sacrificed his political rights in the defence of the rights and dignity of an underaged Malay girl in the 90s when he was disqualified as a MP and jailed in Kajang prison for a year and disenfranchised of his right to vote and to hold elective for five years. Guan Eng is the only case of a Malaysian political leader who had crossed racial and religious lines to sacrifice himself. 3) DAP wants its leaders and members to be in politics to serve the nation and not to serve themselves, whether for wealth, titles or position. 4) DAP politics of multi-racialism is the only way to build a united and successful Malaysia, for the continuation of the politics of mono-ethnicity can never unite a plural Malaysia.
