KUALA LUMPUR: PAS says there will be no more negotiations with other Opposition parties and will go ahead with its decision to contest both the Sungai Besar and Kuala Kangsar Parliamentary constituency by-elections.

Speaking to reporters at the parliament lobby, PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang (pic) said they had already identified its candidates.

"The negotiations are over. PAS has made a decision to contest," he said.

Asked if he had met with PKR's Azmin Ali on the by-election, he replied that he had not.

When asked if PKR was pleased with the outcome of negotiations he said; "ask PKR if they are satisfied or not".

He said that PAS would field local candidates, adding that PAS had won in Arau with a majority of 1,000 before.

PAS was said to be in talks with PKR to prevent a three-cornered fight against Barisan Nasional during the two by-elections on June 18.
