PETALING JAYA: Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia has taken Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah to task for using "inappropriate language" to describe PAS.

Party information chief Wan Saiful Wan Jan said that Tengku Razaleigh's statements in calling PAS a "prostitute" lacks manners and would not go down well with most people.

"This is not a matter of which party. No matter which party, one should be mindful of their manners and etiquette.

"The language used by Tengku Razaleigh is too much. Even if you differ in your opinions, what need is there for someone who is as veteran as Tengku Razaleigh to call PAS a prostitute?

"This is ill-mannered. This will definitely not sit well with many. The politics that we should uphold are healthy and civilised politics. The label of ‘prostitute' should never be used," said Wan Saiful in his statement.

In an interview with a news portal, Tengku Razaleigh said that Umno should not trust PAS and fight it in the next general election.

“We have always fought PAS. The party has been a pain since inception in 1951.

“PAS has been troubling Umno since. Even today, they are troubling Umno. It’s nothing new, ” said Tengku Razaleigh, who is Gua Musang MP, in the interview.

He was also reported to have said that said PAS cannot be trusted to help Umno in GE15 as it is part of Perikatan Nasional.

He said that PAS was insincere although PAS and Umno signed the Muafakat Nasional pact two years ago.

“Even in Tg Piai, when they were already with us, they did not vote for us.

“PAS has about 3,000 members in Tg Piai but not even 1,000 of them voted for us. They are not trustworthy allies. Not even in Semenyih, ” he said.
