‘With co­op­er­a­tion, maybe Pas will go to Pu­tra­jaya af­ter GE15’

New Straits Times - - NEWS / NATION -

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.
