Press Statement: The Vicious Attack On Betty Chew At #Malacca Assembly |
Parti Keadilan Rakyat President Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah expresses her outrage and regrets over the continuous gutter politics employed by the Barisan Nasional.
The latest episode of vicious attack on YB Betty Chew showed a clear pattern of persistent character assassination against political opponents. It appeared that BN leaders are totally bankrupt in ideas and unable to offer sound policy agenda to the people of Malaysia.
Datuk Seri Wan Azizah today extended her sympathy to YB Betty Chew. She believe that all women, being mother and wife, can fully empathise with the predicament YB Betty suffered.
Wan Azizah said:
“The attack on Betty Chew is a cowardly act aiming to humiliate a woman and her family. I pray for her to remain strong and continue to stand firm in the midst of these unethical and irresponsible attacks.”
Datuk Seri Wan Azizah appeals to all politicians to uphold and respect the dignity of women. Thus she also calls on women leaders from Barisan Nasional to voice out in defending a clean and healthy political space for women.
"All of us, regardless of our political affiliation must take a firm stand, we must put an immediate stop to this dirty political culture."
