The Pakatan Rakyat leadership council meeting set for Sunday will not be able to proceed if PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang fails to attend, DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng said.
Lim, who is also Penang Chief Minister, added that the decision had not been made by him, but by DAPâ€™s Central Executive Committee (CEC).
On Tuesday, DAPâ€™s national organising secretary Anthony Loke said that the CEC had approved a resolution that party leaders would only attend the meeting if PAS representatives were present.
â€œThis is to avoid a situation where any decision reached in Pakatan is not sanctioned by PAS,â€ Loke had said.
Lim said DAP had received the assurance of the Pakatan secretariat that Hadi would be present at the meeting at the PAS headquarters in Jalan Raja Laut.
â€œThe leadership meeting is long overdue. When we talk about the Pakatan leadership council meeting, the leaders must attend.
â€œFor an extended period of time, that has not happened,â€ Lim told a press conference Thursday at Komtar Walk.
Lim said he did not want to â€œspeculateâ€ which issues were to be discussed in the meeting.-The Star
