in Politics/Top News

KUALA LUMPUR – PAS secretary-general Datuk Takiyuddin Hassan today clarified that the son of former PAS spiritual leader, Nik Omar Nik Abdul Aziz, is still a member of the party.

“I never heard him declaring that he is joining other party. According to PAS constitution, once you declared that you have joined any other party, you are automatically out, there is no need for the party to sack you,” he told a press conference here today.

Takiyuddin said this in response to the status of Nik Omar after he was reported as saying that he would contest the 14th General Election (GE14) on Parti Amanah Negara’s ticket.

Nik Omar was also quoted as saying that Pakatan Harapan had a chance to take over the Kelantan state administration from PAS.

Meanwhile, Takiyuddin confirmed that he would defend his Kota Bharu seat in the GE14 after winning it in 2013. – BERNAMA
