Explain the about-turn 'vote for BN to stop hudud'

COMMENT How do you explain the conundrum when MCA president Liow Tiong Lai said that voters in the two by-elections should vote BN to stop the implementation of the amendments to the Syariah Court (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act, 1965?

In lighter vein, Gerakan president Mah Siew Kong said that the party would support the BN candidates as an obligation. Similarly, MIC president Dr S Subramaniam gave an assurance that the party would not bring up its objection to the Hudud Bill in the by-elections.

In the immediate aftermath of the tabling of the amendments to the Syariah Court (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act, all three leaders took a tough stand by threatening to resign from their posts if the amendments are passed in Parliament.
