Eyeing the PM's post by 2050, PAS to focus on bagging 40 seats in GE15

ALOR SETAR: PAS will focus its 15th General Election (GE15) strategy and resources on 80 chosen seats, hoping to win at least 40 and start it down the path to having a prime minister from the party by 2050.

Its election director Datuk Seri Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor (pic) said this would be a better strategy than GE14, when it stood in 155 parliamentary seats but won only 18.

"This (focus) will help us maximise our resources, especially efficient use of finances, with a winning chance in 40 seats," he said in his winding-up speech at the party's 68th Muktamar here on Sunday (Sept 4).

"The 30-year plan is to have a PAS prime minister in 2050.

"At present, with 18 seats we have three ministers and eight deputy ministers, and with 40 seats we will be able to realise our plan," he added.

Sanusi said the party's GE15 candidates will be the cream of the crop.

"There will be no boycott of candidates by those not selected, as there is a need for political maturity," he noted.

During a visit to the media camp, he reiterated that rather than spending money on contesting seats, it would be better utilised buying new media equipment for members.

"We want to equip all members and branches with cameras and other gear to disseminate the good deeds of the party.

"The party is not made up of billionaires ... the money is from members, so it's better (if we use it to concentrate) on 80 seats," he added.
