‘With cooperation, maybe Pas will go to Putrajaya after GE15’
KUALA NERUS: Successful cooperation between Pas and other opposition parties could see the next Pas Muktamar being held in Putrajaya after the 15th General Election.
Pas Youth secretary Afnan Hamimi Taib Azamudden, in his speech at the 64th Pas Muktamar on Pas’ role in the opposition, urged delegates to support the motion to allow the Ulama Syura Council to forge cooperation with other opposition parties.
“If the cooperation is successful, we may have our next Muktamar in Putrajaya,” he said in jest.
Afnan, who is Penang Pas Youth chief, said members could face the wrath of Allah should anyone among “their friends” or from the party abuse the space being created for peace and friendliness.
Pas president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang, in his policy speech on Saturday, had said Pas would cooperate with any political party under the Taawun (helping one another) approach in Islam, which was suitable for a multi-cultural and multi-religious society.
“We will cooperate with our friends, so long as they hold on to Islamic principles. Do not betray this trust because history shows that those who went astray are no longer among us on this stage.”
On Sept 16, 2015, Pas splinter group Parti Amanah Negara was formed. Many Pas leaders left for Amanah, including former deputy president Mohamad Sabu and former information chief Khalid Samad.
