The self-exiled blogger, who is also MCLM chairman, told the New Straits Times in an interview published yesterday that the civil society movement would not contest the next general election.
Raja Petra was also reported by the Umno-controlled daily as saying “the Egypt-style people’s revolution was not an answer for Malaysia due to the delicate racial balance. (Chinese voters) don’t want Tahrir Square.”
Today, Haris said Raja Petra unilaterally made the decision to stay away from the general election.
“I can confirm now that no such decision has been made after due consultation. In the circumstances, I find it impossible to continue to serve MCLM as its president,” Haris wrote on his blog.
He said Raja Petra’s comments “greatly undermine efforts I am making, albeit through MLCM, in the ‘Anything But Umno (ABU)’ initiative.
“It also saddens me that even as... many others continue daily to undo the ill-effects of Umno/BN’s 40-over years of race-based, divide-and-rule, my friend should continue to see us as Malays, Chinese, Indians,” he said.
The political activist said he informed Raja Petra, better known as RPK, of his resignation via email.
