PETALING JAYA: PAS' offer of a state seat to former Selangor mentri besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim (pic) indicates that the party is willing to form a coalition government with Barisan Nasional, says Pokok Sena MP Datuk Mahfuz Omar.
He said state PAS commissioner Sallehen Mukhyi's offer to Khalid to contest a state seat in the coming general election with no conditions attached, had thrust the political developments in Selangor into the limelight.
“It seems like PAS does not have to wait until after the general election to be the deciding authority as it already has a mentri besar candidate.
“The commissioner's statement has indirectly shown that Selangor PAS has obtained the green light from the party's central committee to accept Khalid as mentri besar,” Mahfuz, who recently left PAS after 34 years with the party, said in a statement Wednesday.
Khalid, who was sacked from PKR for refusing to vacate the Selangor mentri besar post in 2014, declared in December that he will help Barisan and Umno wrest Selangor from the Opposition in the general election – just a month after declaring he would campaign for PAS.
