KUALA LUMPUR: PAS will not attend the Pakatan Harapan convention slated to take place this weekend because it has no political ties with DAP, confirmed Nasrudin Hasan (pic).
The PAS information chief said this in response to reports that the Opposition alliance had sent an invitation to the Islamist party.
“No, we are not involved in the convention. And it is up to them to send us an invite.
“As far as we are concerned, we will not attend the convention because we are no longer part of them,” he told reporters at Parliament lobby Thursday.
The Temerloh MP reiterated that PAS only has political ties with PKR, but not Pakatan Harapan, of which DAP is a component member.
“PAS is not cooperating with Pakatan Harapan. This is not a PKR convention,” he said.
Pakatan Harapan component parties are expected to give an indication of its leadership line-up for the 14th general election at the convention on Saturday.
Chief secretary of the Pakatan Harapan secretariat Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah said there is a possibility that parties outside the alliance might give their input on the line-up.
He also reportedly said Pakatan Harapan has always prioritised its mission to ensure straight fights against Barisan Nasional.
Meanwhile, Nasrudin also denied rumours that PAS held a meeting with Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Pribumi) on Wednesday to discuss possible political cooperation.
“No, no such thing,” he said.
