DAP not in talks with PN for GE15, says Loke

DAP had not been involved in discussions with non-Pakatan Harapan parties as to its focus now was on consolidating itself for the 15th general election, party secretary-general Anthony Loke said.

He said scenarios such as the possibility of working with Perikatan Nasional (PN) under a ‘big tent’ approach to ensure straight fights with BN in the next polls had never been raised.

“No talks with Bersatu and PN. What’s important is for us to strengthen our parties (DAP and Harapan). It is also not the right time for seat allocation discussions with non-Harapan parties,” Loke told reporters in a joint press conference with party vice-chairman Chow Kon Yeow in George Town today.

He said DAP and Harapan’s focus was to defend their seats and states under Harapan rule, namely Penang, Selangor and Negeri Sembilan, adding also that DAP relies on its coalition partners to ensure comfortable majority wins.

Separately, Loke said that in-depth discussions and discourse were key to addressing the issue of rising food prices, and believes that the government’s move to do away with approved permits to import food was not a solution.

Loke said he will instruct his policy adviser Tony Pua to draft a policy paper on inflation and the rising prices of goods.
