KUALA LUMPUR — Jan. 22, 2020: PAS secretary-general Datuk Takiyuddin Hassan considers gossip about his party joining Pakatan Harapan as an indication of a crisis in the coalition.
In addition, he described the statement by PKR secretary-general Datuk Saifuddin Nasution yesterday that Pakatan did not need PAS as one full of worries, paranoia and panic.
“It also shows that Pakatan is not stable and in a crisis,” said Takiyuddin in a statement today.
He insists that PAS has no intention of joining Pakatan but is instead committed in strengthening its Muafakat Nasional cooperation with Barisan Nasional.
Talk on the possibility of PAS joining Pakatan started after a recent statement by Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad that he was prepared to work with anyone for the good of the nation.
