PH risks marring image if it fields gang of four in Melaka polls

PETALING JAYA: Political analyst Azmi Hassan has cautioned Pakatan Harapan against accepting former Melaka chief minister Idris Haron and his three colleagues into its fold and fielding them in the coming state election.

He said PH’s principles would come into question and it risked being punished by voters.

“By accepting them, I think PH will be demonstrating that it can put its principles aside as long as it can achieve its political objective,” Azmi told FMT. “It will not serve PH’s political purpose. Instead, it will backfire.”

Another analyst, Wong Chin Huat, said questions would be asked about PH’s stand on party hopping should it accept the four assemblymen, whose resignation caused the fall of the state government.
