I pose to Antony Loke: If there really is such a consensus on education, how come neither PAS nor PKR has released any statement to that effect? Particularly, why has not PKR ketua umum Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim who is trying to curry Chinese votes released any statement regarding Pakatan opening up any new Chinese independent schools? Doubts linger as to where Antony Loke’s comment is none other than a personal opinion.
Strangely, when MCA leaders urged Pakatan to clarify whether or not the Chinese School policy is listed in theBuku Jingga, Anwar replied that MCA should ask PM on this issue. Anwar was obviously avoiding the question and finding a way to re-direct the conversation to another topic. TheBuku Jingga does not insert any clause to guarantee that funding will be allocated to Chinese primary schools nor recognize the Unified Examinations Certificate.
