It is not impossible that DAP has something that they need to hide regarding BERSIH 3.0. (Graphic by Dayang Norazhar/The Mole)
BERSIH 3.0 is really causing trouble to the opposition. Not just that they have lost quite a number of support, they also failed to twist facts to prove that the riot was cause by the police and not rioters. From their failure, they had to accuse rioters who caused chaos were undercover police officers. For that, bloggers and news portals who support them became tired of having to justify the chaos that they have caused. To reduce the tension, the government has announced independent panel to investigate BERSIH 3.0 which later received sarcastic response from the opposition.
In May 12, DAP announced a boycott on the independent panel in investigating BERSIH 3.0. It seems natural for DAP where after making various accusations to their enemies, they would push and demand for investigation. But when things have been investigated, they would make various lies to object or boycott the panel and the result if thing s do not go their way. Previously, they made the same move in the issue of the death of Teoh Beng Hock. If we are to see this closely, BERSIH issue went the same way where they accuse the EC for not being transparent, and then denied all EC's efforts to improve election system.
DAP's excuse this time around is that they would not accept the appointment of Mohammad Hanif Omar as the chief panel for the investigation, on the excuse that he took a partisan stance on BERSIH when he claimed that pro-communists were involved and that he supported claim made by Prime Minister, Najib Abdul Razak that BERSIH 3.0 Assembly was a try to bring down the government. However, in accusing Tun Hanif as a partisan, DAP suggested that the government should appoint those who are less partisan such as Suhakam.
