TEMERLOH, Jan 21 2018 : “Allah will decide who becomes prime minister post-GE14,” said Pas president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang.
Speaking at a party function here last night, he said: “We are not greedy to become leaders – but want Islam to lead, save the country, save humanity, this is the core of our cause.”
The gathering which saw a turnout of about 12,000 party faithful was to activate the party machinery for the 14th General Election, which has to be called by August this year.
Also present were Pas spiritual leader Hashim Jasin, Pas deputy president Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan and Pahang Pas commissioner, Rosli Jabar
He was referring to the challenge by Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia’s (PPBM ) chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad for Pas to state its choice for PM ahead of GE14, which must be called by August this year.
The former prime minister is now leading an opposition pact comprising his party, DAP, PKR and Amanah. Pas which is also in the opposition has decided to go it alone, which means that there will be likely a lot of three-cornered fights in GE14. – Bernama
