KOTA BARU: Kelantan Umno has decided to sever ties with PAS in the state effective immediately.

Kelantan Umno liaison committee chairman Datuk Ahmad Jazlan Yaakub said the decision was made after the Kelantan Umno political bureau and the Kelantan PAS dewan harian failed to come to an understanding on cooperation under Muafakat Nasional.

He said at a meeting on Saturday (Jan 22) afternoon, Kelantan PAS wanted to maintain relations with Bersatu and remain in Perikatan Nasional. The party also reiterated its stand to continue to maintain relations with Umno in Muafakat.

“In the context of Kelantan, we have decided that any party that stays with Bersatu will not be our friends or partners to face the 15th General Election (GE15),” he said during a press conference held at the Kelantan Umno Building here Saturday.

Ahmad Jazlan said Kelantan Umno would contest in GE15 under the Barisan Nasional banner.

“That is our decision – we are moving on our own. If there is any decision from the party leadership, then we will abide by the decision of the Umno supreme council,” he said.

Ahmad Jazlan said despite severing ties with PAS in Kelantan, all seven Umno state assemblymen would continue to support the state administration as long as PAS supports Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

“If there are matters related to religious interests that are the basis of our struggle, or the interests of the people, we can sit together,” he said. – Bernama
