MARANG, Feb 22 2019 : PAS today vowed to support the leadership of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad should there be a vote of no-confidence against the prime minister.

Its president, Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang, said despite PAS being an opposition party, it supported Dr Mahathir for the latter to continue with the Islamic leadership in government.

“We have information (on the vote of no-confidence against the prime minister) and that’s why we are expressing our support … there’s no smoke without fire. We provide the support for the sake of Islamic leadership,” he told reporters at his residence after delivering a Friday morning lecture here.

Hadi, who is the MP for Marang, was asked to comment on the statement yesterday in Kuala Lumpur by Dr Mahathir who said he wanted to see whether PAS would keep its pledge to support him if there was an attempt to oust him from the prime minister post.

The vote of no-confidence issue emerged after PAS secretary-general Datuk  Takiyuddin Hassan alleged there was a plot within the ruling Pakatan Harapan coalition to oust Dr Mahathir. – Bernama
