Instead of PAS joining Pakatan Harapan, why not Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Pribumi) and PKR leave the coalition?
This was mooted by PAS vice president Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah in providing alternative solutions for a cooperation.
Yesterday, PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang shut the door on working together with Pribumi. This was due to the fact that PAS would not work with parties which have working relationships with DAP and Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah).
Following that, Mohd Amar was quoted as saying by the New Straits Times that PKR and Pribumi should join PAS in the third bloc ‘Gagasan Sejahtera’ and leave Pakatan Harapan.
“If they want to have tahaluf siyasi (political cooperation), it is better for them to leave Pakatan Harapan, as it is difficult to cooperate with them when they are in the same group,” Mohd Amar who is also Kelantan Deputy Menteri Besar said.
On Abdul Hadi’s decision not to join Pakatan Harapan, Mohd Amar said the decision was ‘final and irreversible’, simply because of the presence of DAP and Amanah.
‘Gagasan Sejahtera’ was a pact that was formed last year between PAS and Parti Ikatan.
