Pas has no clear direction, says Guan Eng
GEORGE TOWN: DAP secretarygeneral Lim Guan Eng sees no sense in working with Pas now that the two parties have severed ties in Permatang Pauh and Bayan Baru.
Lim yesterday said Pas had no clear direction on whether it was working with Pakatan Harapan and believed it would abandon PKR in a “matter of time”.
In commenting on the decision by the two Pas divisions recently, Lim said he believed PAS would eventually work with Umno and Barisan Nasional.
“I think there must be a clearcut direction since Pas has indicated that they want to work with Umno. I think let them be with BN,” he said.
Lim said people would be confused because Pas still maintained ties with DAP and PKR with the Selangor government.
In Shah Alam, Selangor Pas Youth does not feel left behind or threatened by the fact that the Pakatan Harapan and Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM)
Youth wings in the state have begun preparations to face the next general election.
Its chief, Syarhan Humaizi Halim, said they were unfazed by the bigger force of DAP, Parti Amanah Negara (PAN) and PKR, as well as PPBM wings, which had recently announced their series of pre-election work.
Syarhan said the movements by the Pakatan Harapan Youth wings did not affect his wing at all and felt they were on the advantageous side.
“It is their right to unite and work together to gear for the 14th General Election.
“But I am surprised that only now PAN and Pakatan Harapan are coming together and working towards victory and the chance to rule.
“So, it is obvious that their preparations are only to win votes and not truly based on the responsibility to serve the people.
“We do not sit around and wait for Parliament to be dissolved, then only start our work. We do it at all times. That is the difference between Pas and them,” Syarhan told the New Straits Times yesterday.
