PAS is planning to contest in seats held by DAP in the next general election to counter Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah), which has expressed keenness in contesting the seats held by PAS.
PAS plans to field non-Malay members of its Supporters Congress (DHPP) in non-Malay dominated seats, its president Abdul Hadi Awang said.
"The party will not hesitate to look deeply into non-Muslim candidates representing the party in the coming general election. PAS central is studying the matter," Hadi was quoted as saying by Mingguan Utusan yesterday.
He added that the candidates should be hardcore supporters of PAS.
According to the Malay daily today, the move is seen as an counter attack against the PAS splinter party Amanah, which expressed its view to contest in all seats, included those won by PAS.
Hadi also described the act of stomping the on the portrait of Prime Minister Najib Razak and him during the Bersih 4 rally as "childish".
The ‘progressives’ from PAS have taken over the Malaysian Workers Party and renamed it Parti Amanah Negara after their bid to form Parti Progesif Islam was rejected by the Registrar of Societies.
