PAS’ Sanusi rejects nominations to contest veep post

ALOR SETAR: PAS election director Datuk Seri Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor has rejected nominations to contest the party’s vice-president post at its 69th Muktamar next month.

Muhammad Sanusi, who is also Kedah Mentri Besar, said he is not yet ready for the vice-presidency’s post and would rather be a PAS Central Committee member.

“I know my level and quality. Different qualifications are needed for different roles.

“That is why I’m the Mentri Besar but the state PAS commissioner post is held by another person,” he told reporters after chairing the state exco meeting here yesterday, Bernama reported.

Muhammad Sanusi said this when asked to comment on nominations for him to contest the vice-president post.

On another matter, he said PAS respects the Election Court’s decision to annul the victory of Perikatan Nasional candidate Che Alias Hamid in the Kemaman parliamentary seat in the 15th General Election (GE15).

He said the PAS leadership is discussing with its lawyers whether to make an appeal or to just go for a by-election.

The court recently made the ruling following a petition filed by Terengganu Umno on Jan 3 alleging that PAS had bribed voters by distributing cash aid given by the state government several days before GE15 was held.
