MARANG: PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang has defended Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim and stated that he wants the latter to remain as Selangor Mentri Besar.
"That is my stand and I hope all PAS leaders are with me," he said, adding that the decision was made after considering the views of PAS members.
Hadi said a majority of the PAS grassroots agreed that Khalid should remain as Menteri Besar.
However, this would depend on the Sultan of Selangor, he told reporters when met at his house in Rusila on Friday.
Hadi said Khalid's track record, in helming Selangor, and retaining the state in the 13th general election could not be denied, despite problems in the Pakatan Rakyat.
He said he could not accept the grounds given by some quarters in wanting Khalid to step down.
"If he is involved in a scandal, breach of trust, misappropriation of government funds, then we can change, but if it is because of other reasons, it is not by changing the Mentri Besar.
"Let him complete his term," he added.
When asked about the possibility of PAS inviting Khalid to join the party, Hadi said PAS had no intention of doing so.
"That is not our way and since the beginning, although we have 15 seats, which is more than PKR, we gave PKR the Mentri Besar seat because we already have the (Mentri Besar) seat in Kelantan.
