Azmin: PKR won’t cut ties with Pas despite Hadi’s ‘biawak’ remark
SHAH ALAM: PKR will stick to its stand of not severing ties with Pas even though Pas president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang has likened cooperating with other political parties to “memikul biawak hidup”, meaning to carry an unnecessary burden.
PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali said the party still believed in mutuality in the opposition pact and would respect differences of opinion.
“Keadilan (PKR) at the central, state and divisional levels has never severed ties with friends.”
He said this after attending the opening of the Fifth Session of the 13th Selangor state legislative assembly by Sultan of Selangor Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah here yesterday.
On Hadi’s remark, Azmin said: “Please do not use such terms. It’s not proper in public as we should be using better words that are nicer to hear.
“We should have mutual respect because even if we argue with our enemies, there’s no need to use such (unpleasant) terms.”
Last Saturday, Hadi was quoted as saying by social media that Pas would be taking its own approach in facing the 14th General Election. Bernama
