PAS whose president wields a little or lesser power is dictated by a spiritual leader who often mistook himself for the Prophets.
The unelected spiritual leader is the actual leader, not the elected President. Democracy has to be redefined to accommodate Pas... maybe.
DAP on the other hand has democracy etched in its name but in actual practice, as being continuously exposed by its former members and leaders, democracy appears like a corpse in DAP backyard.
The father and son political tyranny in DAP is an open secret. What is not so secret any longer is the way the Lim dynasty chokes dissent in DAP, even while screaming for a CAT administration here and there.
By right the much disputed Dec 2012 DAP CEC election, where vote rigging and manipulation is suspected and alleged, ought to be held again.
By right, by democratic norms, the party should call for a re-election of the CEC which appoints top party leaders including the powerful secretary general.
DAP members claim 750-odd eligible delegates were barred/not allowed to vote during the disputed CEC elections. They have also claimed that more than 500 phantom delegates could have voted to elect the 20 DAP CEC members in Dec 2012.
They suspect the 'inclusion' of Zairil Khir Johari was a fraudulent act, an afterthought engineered to please/hoodwink the Malays in DAP and those at large with blind hatred against the Government.
