Pas has no clear di­rec­tion, says Guan Eng

New Straits Times - - News -

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.
