Wan Az­izah: I will wait for Syura Coun­cil’s fi­nal de­ci­sion

New Straits Times - - News -

PETALING JAYA: PKR is ready to con­test against Pas in the 14th Gen­eral Elec­tion, said PKR pres­i­dent Datuk Seri Dr Wan Az­izah Wan Is­mail yes­ter­day.

“If they want to con­test against us, they may pro­ceed.

“What can we do if they choose to do so?

“If the mis­sion is to bring down the ‘klep­to­cratic’ gov­ern­ment, we think that it is the only ra­tio­nal way be­tween par­ties,” she said af­ter at­tend­ing a Pakatan Hara­pan pres­i­den­tial coun­cil meet­ing here yes­ter­day.

She said this af­ter Pa s a pproved a mo­tion to sever ties with PKR dur­ing its 63rd muk­ta­mar in Kedah yes­ter­day.

Dr Wan Az­izah said she would wait for the Pas Syura Coun­cil to make the fi­nal de­ci­sion.

Pas’s mo­tion to cut ties with PKR is sub­ject to ap­proval from the Syura Coun­cil, Pas’s high­est de­ci­sion-mak­ing body.

Parti Pribumi Ber­satu Malaysia (PPBM) pres­i­dent Tan Sri Muhyid­din Yassin said Pas pres­i­dent Datuk Seri Ab­dul Hadi Awang was “con­fused” when the lat­ter de­cided against form­ing a part­ner­ship with PPBM.

He said Hadi was un­aware of PPBM’s sit­u­a­tion and the sys­tem that was used to run the party.

This fol­lowed Hadi’s re­cent state­ment in which he said Pas would not work with PPBM as the new party “lacked di­rec­tion”.

“His as­sump­tion is base­less. We have our own party agenda, which we have dis­cussed at the grass­roots and na­tional level.

“We have no prob­lem with Pas’s de­ci­sion.

“We have the voter’s sup­port, which is sat­is­fy­ing and will bring us vic­tory in the gen­eral elec­tion,” he said af­ter the Pakatan Hara­pan pres­i­den­tial coun­cil meet­ing yes­ter­day.
