We’re Not Abdul Hadi’s ‘Yes Men’, Says Tuan Ibrahim

in Latest/Politics

KUALA LUMPUR – PAS has dispelled the notion that decision-making would be easier now without the non-ulama faction.

“In fact, this is kind of a strength to the president. (Having a pro-ulama faction) does not mean they are ‘yes men’ to the president,” said newly elected deputy president Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man (pix) at a recent interview here.

He admitted that some of the new central committee members have different views from Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang, and the president took it positively.

“All their opinions are taken into account in the meetings, and the president could make a decision based on these different views,” he said.

Tuan Ibrahim also dismissed the perception that the new team is predominantly ulama, saying that the “majority” of the leaders come from professional backgrounds.

“Majority of the leaders in the Youth wing are professionals,” he stressed.

Tuan Ibrahim, who replaced Mohamad Sabu with a landslide victory at the 61st muktamar, also said that it was his duty to reunite the party.

“My main focus now is to unite all members and strengthen the party. Winning or losing is part of any election,” he added. – The Star Online
