Pakatan Rakyat should be careful about accepting Huan Cheng Guan

Malaysiakini reported that Gerakan vice-president Huan Cheng Guan intends to quit Gerakan to join Pakatan Rakyat in three weeks time together with thousands of supporters. I hope Pakatan Rakyat will be cautious about accepting Huan Cheng Guan and his supporters. This is because the stated reason for the move is Teng Hock Nan (Gerakan Penang Chief) and several state leaders who overlooked Huan's supporters for positions in the constituency committees of the implementation coordination unit (ICU).

My opinion is, it is OK to be a political frog to shift your political allegiance if the reasons are because one support what Pakatan Rakyat are fighting for (no racism, no corruption, etc.), but to change party because one is denied positions in the old party means one is in the political game because of positions and not to serve. We have to be very careful with such politicians because if such frogs don't get positions in Pakatan Rakyat, they may just jump back to their old party.
