KOTA BARU: PAS Youth chief Nasrudin Hassan is the first to declare his assets as the wing makes it compulsory for all potential election candidates to do so.
Nasrudin said his executive council members would follow suit soon.
“We will later ask other grassroots leaders to fill up the asset declaration form which is similar to the one issued by the Public Service Department,” he said.
Nasrudin said the forms would be submitted to the party president once the candidates were short-listed.
He said young candidates would make up 40% of PAS' list of candidates.
“After a candidacy is confirmed, we will display the filled-up forms on the wing's website,” he said.
Nasrudin declared that he is earning RM2,500 in allowance as a full time politician, while his wife, a school teacher, draws a RM4,000 monthly salary.
“I am earning another RM300 from house rental,” said the father of six children aged between seven and 17.
His expenses include servicing a housing loan at RM530 for a house worth RM130,000 and car loan at RM1,400 a month.
“My wife is servicing a monthly housing loan at RM1,300,” he said.
He has a savings of RM9,000.
Meanwhile, Wanita chief Siti Zailah Mohd Yusoff said the wing hoped to contest 30 seats in the next election.
Previously, the wing contested only 11 seats.
