Merge with us for Malay unity, PAS told

A KELANTAN Wanita-Umno delegate has urged Umno and PAS to consider merging for the sake of Malay unity.

Datuk Zaleha Husin said the two parties whose main struggle was to defend Islam should not just sit down for a muzakarah (discussion) but “should become one”. She said this was something which the leadership of both parties should consider.

“However, we hope that PAS is sincere in wanting a muzakarah with Umno and will not change their minds if DAP pulls its nose or ears.

“If they are truly sincere, then let us extend our hands in the name of Muslim brotherhood,” she said when debating the motion on education, religion and socio-economy.

Pahang Puteri delegate Suhaya Elly Rosli urged the party to revise the membership age limit for the wing from 35 years to 40.

She said by the time a Puteri member became politically mature, she would have reached the end of her tenure.

“The question is how far can Wanita Umno accept the presence of these young women? For divisions that can’t, what will be the political direction of these young women who were supposed to keep driving the party forward?” she asked.
