After dithering on GE15 partners, Hadi Awang said PAS

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 8 — The central PAS leadership did not make a decision on which party will be its ally for the upcoming general election today, after weeks of swinging between Umno and Bersatu. Its president Tan Sri Abdul Hadi Awang said PAS will continue its efforts to unite the ummah, which requires “commitment” from the country’s three core Malay Muslim parties to ensure the country’s stability after the 15th general election.


PAS is of the view that there needs to be ‘flexibility’ in negotiating with Umno and Bersatu, including ongoing discussions on the terms that have been presented and seat negotiations,” he said in a statement this afternoon. The Marang Member of Parliament did not explain in detail the terms and seat negotiations.

The central PAS leadership was closed in a meeting at its national headquarters here this morning and is expected to decide whether to stay with Perikatan Nasional Bersatu, which was founded in early 2020, or go with Umno, the division it has formed. the National Consensus pact with in September 2019. PAS finds itself caught between the two as Umno and Bersatu fight each other and refuse to put aside their differences ahead of the national election.

In a statement today, Abdul Hadi confirmed that the three PAS-led states – Kedah, Kelantan, and Terengganu – will not dissolve their state assemblies in the near future if Parliament is dissolved to make way for new elections. He gave the reason to enable the state government to focus on disaster relief efforts for the flood forecast that will occur in the monsoon season between mid-November to March 2023, in addition to post-Covid economic recovery efforts and measures.
