PETALING JAYA: The PAS leadership is against proposing Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail as mentri besar as it feels the Sultan of Selangor is not in favour of her leading the state.

A top PAS leader said this was the crux of the problem and tomorrow’s central committee meeting was held “to find a way through”.

“The most important factor for any­one who wants to be the MB is that he or she must have the consent of Tuanku.

“If the person that some quarters want is someone we believe Tuanku is not in favour of, why must they insist? We have told them (PKR) about this problem but they still insist, so how?’’ asked the official, who did not want to be named.

He, however, insisted that there was no question of PAS pulling out of Pakatan Rakyat.

“We will still be together. This is not going to be such a difficult matter to resolve,” he stressed.

The official said the PAS central committee meeting usually reached a consensus when deciding on issues, although there had been times when it had to resort to a vote to settle a dispute.
