GE15: PAS members who campaign for other parties can be subject to disciplinary measures, says Takiyuddin

KOTA BARU: Any PAS member who campaigns for candidates from Opposition parties can be subject to disciplinary action and even dismissal, says secretary-general Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan (pic).

He said it was written in the constitution that helping other political parties was considered a breach of discipline.

"This matter is written in our constitution which states that a PAS member is considered to be breaching the discipline if he does any wrongful act and anything that harms the party.

"Of course, if a member helps campaign for another party it will harm PAS and action will be taken including dismissal," he said.

However, Takiyuddin said in a press conference, here, they had yet to receive any complaints from the ground.

On another matter, the incumbent MP and PAS's candidate for the Kota Baru parliamentary seat in the 15th General Election (GE15), said PAS members could step down via three ways including dismissal, willingly resigning and participating in other political parties including contesting under another party's banner.

In the matter of Che Abdullah Mat Nawi who was announced to contest in Tumpat under Barisan Nasional after he was dropped from PAS, he said that Che Abdullah was automatically dismissed.

He said that no disciplinary action would be taken, adding that they would issue a notice saying that he was no longer a party member.

"Any member who is dismissed can rejoin the party through the normal application process.

"If it's (the application) is accepted so be it and if it's rejected then so be it," he said.
