JOHOR BARU: There is still time for Umno and PAS to work together in the upcoming state election, says Johor PAS commissioner Abdullah Husin.

Abdullah said that Johor PAS has requested to have a meeting with Johor Umno liaison committee chairman Datuk Hasni Mohammad that was expected to take place in the near future.

"The meeting (with Hasni) has not taken place as he has been busy in the past few days.

"There is a response coming from his side but there has yet to be an exact date or time for the meeting.

"We hope that the meeting could be carried out soon as possible," he said when contacted here on Tuesday (Jan 25).

Asked if Umno's plan to fly solo in the state election with Barisan Nasional would be a deterrent for further cooperation, he said that it would not be a problem.

"Yes, there have been statements made by Umno but a decision has yet to be made.

"There is still room and time for discussion as the Election Commission (EC) would only be having a meeting to discuss the date of the election on Feb 9.

"There is still time for us to talk to them," he said.

He also said that PAS would also be having a meeting with Johor Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) on Jan 27 to discuss preparations for the coming election.

"We hope that PAS, Bersatu and Umno could have an understanding to work together in this election.

"If we could work together to form a government, why couldn't we do the same for this election?," he said.
