BUKIT MERTAJAM: Penang PAS will table a motion to sever political co-operation with PKR at the party’s 63rd ge­­neral assembly in Kota Sarang Se­­mut, Kedah, from April 27 to May 1.

State PAS commissioner Fauzi Mohd Yusof said 13 Penang PAS divisions had agreed to the motion since PKR was “disrespectful to PAS” as its associate.

“The 13 PAS divisions have met and unanimously agreed to end the political co-operation with PKR.

“This shows that Penang PAS is serious about the co-operation with PKR,” he told reporters after the 37th Penang PAS Youth assembly in Mengkuang Titi here yesterday.

Fauzi said the motion would be sent to the PAS central committee and the motion vetting committee, with the hope that it would be accepted and debated at the assembly.

In Sungai Siput, PAS Youth chief Nik Mohamad Abduh Nik Abdul Aziz said no decision could be made on the motion as 10 states have yet to hold their divisional meetings.

“Only four states have completed their meetings while the rest will do so before the general assembly at the end of this month,” he said at a press conference after opening the 34th Perak PAS Youth assembly.

The Pasir Mas MP said PAS never considered Umno as its enemy, even though both parties had different political ideologies.

“Compared to Amanah, which always considers Umno its enemy till death, PAS is willing to work with Umno in matters relating to Islam. This makes Amanah angry.

“I want PAS members to think about the Islamic struggle, not just for PAS and Umno, but how we can make society accept it,” said Nik Mohamad Abduh. — Bernama
