PUTRAJAYA: PAS is fine despite being given a “small share” in the Perikatan Nasional Cabinet line-up, says Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man.

The PAS deputy president, who is the new Environment Minister, said what was more important is that Perikatan Nasional can prove itself as a government to the people.

“We work together as a team in Perikatan. Whether we get small or big posts, we are all part of one component that will form a government that can deliver to the people’s aspirations, Insyallah.

“We have no problems. Most importantly, we can prove our abilities and the people can experience the presence of the Perikatan government, ” said Tuan Ibrahim, at a press conference after chairing his first post-Cabinet meeting here.

Also present was his deputy minister Datuk Dr Ahmad Masrizal Muhammad.

Tuan Ibrahim is one of the three PAS MPs who have been appointed as ministers.

The party has 18 MPs.

PAS secretary-general Datuk Takiyuddin Hassan is Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Law) while PAS central committee member Datuk Dr Khairuddin Aman Razali is Plantation Industries and Commodities Minister.

Bersatu has 11 ministers in the Cabinet, including Prime Minsiter Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, while Umno has nine.

Gabungan Parti Sarawak, which, like PAS, has 18MPs, has four ministers, including Works Minister Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof, who is one of the four senior ministers.

On another matter, Tuan Ibrahim said PAS will heed the prime minister's call for all ministers to declare their assets.

“I give my guarantee that all 18 PAS MPs will declare their assets, ” he said.

Earlier, Muhyiddin said as part of proving its commitment to fight corruption, ministers will be asked to declare their assets within a month’s time.
