KUALA LUMPUR: DAP secretary-general Loke Siew Fook has disagreed with Nurul Izzah Anwar’s view that Pakatan Harapan will need at least 10 more years or two general elections before it can retake the federal government.
Loke said PH component parties needed to have a greater desire to win the next general election (GE15) rather than “conceding defeat before even entering the arena”.
“I disagree with the view that we have to wait 10 years. If that’s the case, we might as well just make way for Barisan Nasional (to form the next government).
“So PH must have the aim of winning though the challenges ahead might be difficult, instead of saying we won’t win when we haven’t entered the arena. Or else, our party members won’t have the spirit,” he said in a press conference tonight.
