[Politik] Small Cabinet presence a bitter pill for DAP to swallow, say analysts

IPOH, Dec 10 — DAP members will understand the reality that their party must concede some Cabinet spots despite having the most seats in the national unity government, according to political analysts.

After the 15th general election, DAP emerged with 40 MPs, ahead of PKR with 31, Amanah’s eight, Barisan Nasional’s 30 (including 26 from Umno), Gabungan Parti Sarawak’s 23, and Gabungan Rakyat Sabah’s six.

Compared to DAP’s four ministers, PKR has eight, Umno has six, GPS has five, Amanah has two, and GRS has one minister in Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s Cabinet.

However, the analysts said DAP’s members and supporters have accepted prioritising the formation of Anwar’s unity government, even if it meant less influence for the single largest party in the administration.

University of Malaya Centre for Democracy and Elections (UMcedel) socio-political analyst Associate Professor Dr Awang Azman Awang Pawi said DAP members could see that apparent dominance by their party could become political ammunition for the Opposition.

PAS and Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) have frequently used DAP as a conduit to criticise and reject the government, he pointed out.

“During the formation of the unity government, many DAP members wanted harmony and unity and they did not want people to think DAP wanting to dominate the government.

“Therefore, the DAP members understand this sentiment; in fact, they are big-hearted and willing to sacrifice to ensure the harmony and unity preserved in the country,” he told Malay Mail.

The move should deflect some of the claims that Anwar’s government was controlled by the DAP, he said.

According to senior fellow at the Nusantara Academy for Strategic Research (NASR) Azmi Hassan, however, DAP members have been quiet and accepting of their party’s relatively low presence in the Cabinet to avoid alienating BN.

He also said it was the reality of the zero-sum game that was politics.

“If BN were pushed to a corner, then the race and religion card will crop again in this government and this will force BN to think whether they should continue their support for the leadership of Anwar.

“If Pakatan Harapan falls, then PAS will come up, so I guess even though DAP did not get or only get non-important portfolios beside the Transport Ministry, I think this is part of DAP strategies to make sure Anwar receive the support from BN,” he explained.

Azmi suggested that DAP and its members accepted the strategic thinking necessary to give the Anwar administration a chance to last at least for half a term, and possibly for a full one.

In the Cabinet line-up Anwar announced last Friday, only four DAP representatives were named among the 28 members.

They were Anthony Loke (Transport), Nga Kor Ming (Local Government Development), Hannah Yeoh (Youth and Sports) and V. Sivakumar (Human Resources).

Aside from the 11 portfolios that Umno and GPS received, a deputy prime minister was also appointed from the each.

Senior fellow at the Singapore Institute of International Affairs Oh Ei Sun said the DAP under-representation in the Cabinet has already been noted by some in the party.

Among them was Penang DAP chairman Chow Kon Yeow who expressed his disappointment that none of his state’s federal lawmakers made it to the Cabinet. Sarawak DAP MPs were also expressly omitted as part of the compromise with GPS.

According to Oh, DAP secretary-general Loke will need to address this unhappiness before it causes resentment within the party and its grassroots.

“Already Penang’s Chow is grumbling, so Loke has to assuage its supporters,” he said.

Yesterday, Anwar appeared to salve DAP’s sensibilities by naming six of the party’s lawmakers as deputy ministers, including Steven Sim to the powerful Finance Ministry.

The PM also named Lim Hui Ying, the sister of DAP national chairman Lim Guan Eng and the daughter of party stalwart Lim Kit Siang, as the deputy minister for education.

Not even a single DAP Malay MPs are ministers or deputy ministers.
They are in the party to be dressed as mannequins to line the windows of the party.
Syahredzan, Young Shefura, Syerleena, wake up!

There are good Malay DAP members who are more senior and have been working with the government. They could do a much better job than many of those ministers and deputy ministers. Why didn't DAP nominate them to the PM? What did Guan Eng's sister do to deserve being nominated as Deputy Minister? She was not even a good Senator. Has she enough experience when compared to Syahredzan, etc.? This is what makes the Malays turn away from DAP and brand them as anti-Malay and anti-Islam. If this carries on, DAP will soon lose all its Malay members.

Has Lim Hui Ying proven and established herself as first-time MP? Obviously No. So why should she be appointed a deputy minister?

Doesn’t DAP have any other candidates for kementerian pedidikan and kementerian komunikasi.
What about the young energetic intelligent malay MPs from DAP? Bangi should take over the pendidikan portfolio, as he is one of the few politicians who dare to think out of the box.

Syabas Anwar. Appointing 6 deputy ministers from DAP have in a way compensate the 4 ministers appointed to the cabinet. Our of 10, DAP have 7 Chinese 2 Indians from Peninsular and 1 Chinese from Sabah. 7 men 3 women. A good mix.

Ibarat di telan mati mak, di luah mati bapak antara PN dan PH ni.

PN penuh ngan pak lobai yang credibility dr segi keje agak was2... tak sanggup nk tgk muka hadi awang dan baca komen2 dia menunggang agama demi politik.

Kalo PH, penuh dgn cina2 dap yg knowing masih lagi ade sentimen kecinaan... cth keluar statement termasuk dlm bahasa cina. Reporter cina tanya soalan dlm bahasa cina, jwb dlm cina walau pun psl kementerian. Belum lagi demand mcm2 org2 cina ni.

Wait and see je la kerajaan skrg. BN mmg org ramai tolak. So expected la muka2 annoying jadi menteri.
