KUALA LUMPUR: Mohamad Sabu has dismissed an allegation that there are certain factions within PAS attempting to sabotage Pakatan Rakyat following its refusal to disclose the preview of Kelantanâ€™s hudud proposal to the partyâ€™s allies.
â€œThat is mere speculation,â€ said the PAS deputy president at the party’s headquarters on Friday, appearing to downplay the accusation made by the Islamist partyâ€™s ally, DAP, ahead of the highly-anticipated Pakatan leadership council meeting this Sunday.
An online news portal had earlier reported that there were certain factions within the Islamist party attempting to sabotage the alliance for refusing to provide a preview of Kelantanâ€™s hudud proposal to DAP and PKR in the meeting.
DAP national organising secretary Anthony Loke was quoted as saying that there was a â€œclear attempt, a clear agenda to destablise Pakatan by certain quarters within PASâ€.
â€œOur position remains clear. Hudud is not part of Pakatanâ€™s agenda and any attempts to introduce it will be to oppose that agenda,â€ he was quoted as saying.
It was reported that PAS would have the Syariah Criminal Code II Enactment 1993 approved in the state assembly sitting in March before presenting it to PKR and DAP.
When pressed further, Mohamad said PAS leaders would decide whether to disclose it to their allies during the partyâ€™s central committee meeting that will be held on Sunday morning ahead of the Pakatan leadership council meeting.-The Star
