GE14 | Kelantan’s Cempaka candidate Nik Omar Nik Abdul Aziz’s entry into Pakatan Harapan could break PAS’ iron grip on Islamic politics, said an analyst.

Political analyst Mazlan Ali said Malays who are pro-Islam or have Islamic aspirations are now faced with the question if PAS is the only party that can advance such goals.

Nik Omar, the second son of the revered late PAS spiritual leader Nik Aziz Nik Mat was immediately sacked from the Islamist party on Saturday after submitting his nomination as a Harapan candidate under Amanah.
