PEKAN: PAS and DAP's conflicting stands on hudud show that the Pakatan Rakyat partners have no credibility, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said.

He said PAS deputy spiritual leader Datuk Dr Haron Din had already said the party would implement hudud but DAP was still opposing it.

"The question is what will happen to our country if we place our trust in them. We cannot have an opposing stance when it comes to base policies.

"We may have difference in opinion on certain things but in Barisan Nasional, we never think different on core national policies," said Najib at Kampung Ketapang here on Thursday.

Najib also said the Opposition was in chaos and confusion when they fielded candidates to fight against each other.

"We may have members who are contesting as independents but none of our component parties are taking on each other.

"Whereas the Opposition not only have independent candidates, PAS is fighting PKR in seven seats.

"This shows they have no common understanding," he said.
