KUALA SELANGOR: Ousted PAS deputy president Mohamad Sabu (pic) will resign next week as a member of Penang's Water Board, which is led by the DAP administration.

This is in view of the Dewan Ulama's resolution to cut ties with DAP.

Mohamad Sabu, popularly known as Mat Sabu, said he would tender his resignation to adhere by the resolution.

“I do not want to be seen going against the norm of the party. I hope others in Selangor will follow suit.

“We will only continue to be stronger since we are alone,” he said, during his winding-up speech at PAS’ 61st Muktamar here, Saturday.

PAS earlier approved a motion by the Dewan Ulama to sever ties with its partner DAP, but remain in Pakatan Rakyat.

The motion, which was approved without debate, stated four resolutions, among others, to urge the party not to compromise its Islamic policies.

The Dewan Ulama, on Wednesday, unanimously approved the motion brought by newly-elected PAS central committee member Mokhtar Senik.

It was reported that the motion would only be discussed by the new committee line-up and brought to the Syura council for decision.
