PETALING JAYA: Parti Amanah Negara president Mohamad Sabu has dismissed claims of a fallout between him and Datuk Husam Musa after the latter quit his post as party vice president.

Mohamad Sabu said that the party leadership, after being told of Husam's intention to relinquish his post, proposed Husam as adviser to three important bureaus to face the next general election.

"These are the responsibilities given to Husam, which suit his experience and capabilities," said Mohamad in a statement on Tuesday (Sept 15).

Husam has also denied a report in an online portal that claimed he resigned from his vice president post, as well as Kelantan Pakatan Harapan chairman, in protest against Mohamad.

The report, quoting sources, claimed that Husam submitted his resignation letter two weeks ago.

According to the sources, Husam was not satisfied with Mohamad's leadership, particularly for not providing clear direction whether to support former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad or PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Mohamad, in the statement, said he had known Husam since their youth when they joined PAS.

"We continued to exchange views, give ceramah and draft strategies for PAS until we were together again in Amanah.

"Husam and I will continue to work together to improve Amanah and create stronger relations with Pakatan Harapan and to lead the local political scene with the Islamic concept of rahmatan lil alamin (compassion for all)," he said.

Husam joined Amanah following his sacking from PAS in 2016 and was appointed party vice-president.
