KOTA KINABALU – PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang admitted he did not know for sure who among its party members protested against Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) president Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, who is Pakatan Rakyat’s candidate for the Permatang Pauh by-election.
He said that they may be those who often resorted to provocative acts whenever elections take place in the constituency .
“We hope that these people are not from PAS. We hope so because there has already been a made by the PAS Youth.
“The statement says we will work together (with our partners DAP and PKR) in Permatang Pauh. PAS’s central leadership had made a statement earlier that we were still with Pakatan Rakyat,” he said.
Abdul Hadi was speaking to reporters after officiating the Sabah PAS’s annual convention here today.
When asked why he did not go to campaign in Permatang Pauh, Abdul Hadi said he was busy with his party’s programmes that had been set up earlier, besides having to make frequent trips to the hospital to receive treatment.
On PAS stand regarding Pakatan Rakyat (PR) members in Sabah, especially DAP, which has rejected PAS’s involvement in PR Sabah, Abdul Hadi said it was up to each state’s PR to decide but PAS at the central level was still a member of PR.
Abdul Hadi also asserted that PAS was standing by its decision on implementing hudud in Kelantan and sticking to the agreement reached among the leaders of PR leaders earlier to respect each others differences. – BERNAMA
