Hadi: PAS will not join new opposition pact

PAS will not be joining the new opposition coalition, its president Abdul Hadi Awang reportedly said.

The official mouthpiece of the NGO Isma, Ismaweb , quoted him as saying that this is because the new pact which is being formed has a hidden agenda.

“We cannot be adrift. The new Pakatan merely wants to win elections. They have no plans to uphold Islam,” he was quoted as saying.

He said PAS’ agenda is to uphold Islam, because the majority of Malaysians are Muslims.

Previously, PKR deputy president Mohd Azmin Ali ( photo ) had said that the party is of the opinion that PAS should be a part of a new opposition coalition.

However, the two other potential members of the new coalition are rejecting the idea.

DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng had said that a coalition with both DAP and PAS on board would be untenable.

PAS and DAP had parted ways in June, after the latter objected to Hadi’s move to table a private member’s bill in Parliament that would pave way for the implementation of hudud law.

Meanwhile, founding member of the PAS splinter party Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah) Mohamed Hanipa Maidin had said that the Islamist party had no sincere appreciation for the political cooperation with both the DAP and PKR.
