God’s peace be with you. Malaysiakini reports today that you have called upon DAP to merge with PKR and Amanah, with a view to “creating a more representative and bigger multi-racial party”. “All three should dissolve and merge into one pluralistic party with a progressive outlook. I really hope that one day Pakatan Harapan will […]
