No talks yet on PAS merger with other par­ties

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

KOTA BARU: PAS has not held any dis­cus­sions to merge with other par­ties in prepa­ra­tion for the 14th gen­eral elec­tion, said its vice-pres­i­dent Datuk Mohd Amar Nik Ab­dul­lah.

Mohd Amar said al­though the party had given an op­por­tu­nity to Parti Pribumi Ber­satu Malaysia (PPBM) pres­i­dent Tan Sri Muhyid­din Yassin to speak dur­ing a re­cent talk PAS hosted in Kemaman, Terengganu, it was not a sign that PAS and PPBM would merge.

“There is no dis­cus­sion (to unite with PPBM). We just shared the same stage,” he told re­porters af­ter launch­ing the Ke­lan­tan Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Con­fer­ence here yes­ter­day.

Muhyid­din had said in his speech that there should be co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the newly-formed party and Pakatan Hara­pan, es­pe­cially PAS, to cre­ate a wave of ma­jor changes to­wards form­ing a new gov­ern­ment.

In an­other de­vel­op­ment, Mohd Amar re­it­er­ated the party’s stand that it had closed the door to ne­go­ti­a­tions with DAP and Parti Amanah Ne­gara (Amanah).

“We will not ne­go­ti­ate or dis­cuss any­thing (with DAP and Amanah). We are open to oth­ers but (there have been) no for­mal dis­cus­sions with any­body yet,” he said.

Amanah was formed af­ter sev­eral PAS lead­ers left the Is­lamist party due to dif­fer­ences with the lead­er­ship. – Ber­nama
