SEREMBAN: PAS will field 11 non-Muslim candidates in urban areas for the general election.

State PAS commissioner Mustafa Daharun said these candidates had been shortlisted to contest in Chinese-majority seats.

“We will field candidates in all eight parliamentary and 36 state seats in Negri Sembilan.

“Mat Sabu can say what he wants. He may not know what we have done in the state,” he said.

Mustafa was commenting on statements by former PAS deputy president Mohamad Sabu that the Islamist party wields no influence in Negri Sembilan, citing four of its previous state commissioners had left the party.

On Sunday, Mat Sabu, who is now Parti Amanah Negara president, said Pakatan Harapan would be able to capture the state from Barisan Nasional, and that PAS would not do well on its own.

Mustafa said PAS would have no problems contesting on its own.

“The majority of our candidates are new faces, including three for parliamentary seats,” he said, adding that PAS would be fielding at least four women candidates.
