KUALA LUMPUR: PAS deputy president Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man has declined Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s invitation to cross over to Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu).

According to Tuan Ibrahim, PAS is sticking to its formal cooperation with Umno, as he described Umno as a core party for Malay-Muslim political parties in the country.

“We invite all political cooperation. But, we are consistent with Umno in the concept of unity,” he said to reporters when met at Parliament lobby on Monday (July 8).

The Kubang Kerian MP said that Malay unity can be achieved with the cooperation of Umno and PAS.

“To us, the real unity is still with PAS and Umno,” he added.

On July 5, Dr Mahathir had called for all Malays, especially Umno members, to come together under the umbrella of Bersatu for the sake of unity.

Pakatan Harapan is set to have a presidential council meeting at 4pm on Monday (July 8) to deliberate over Dr Mahathir’s remarks.
