PETALING JAYA: The PAS Syura council that convened Wednesday night has unanimously decided that Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim should be retained as Selangor Mentri Besar as he had not been convicted for any breach of trust.
The party said the decision was made based on Islamic laws contained under the party’s constitution and the interests of the people, which should take precedence over individual and party agendas.
“In regard to the position of Selangor Mentri Besar, it was collectively agreed upon by all three component parties in Pakatan Rakyat following the 13th general election that Khalid would be retained for a second term.
“As long as he has not been convicted for any violation of trust, the Syura council takes the stand that Khalid should continue as MB based on that agreement,” a statement on the party’s news organ, Harakahdaily, said.
The statement, signed by PAS spiritual adviser Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat and deputy spiritual adviser Datuk Dr Haron Din, also said the party would reconsider their decision in the event that Khalid is found guilty of the allegations thrown at him by PKR.
