Hadi: PAS will not join BN or Pakatan



KUALA LUMPUR, March 26 — PAS said it would not be a part of Barisan Nasional (BN) or Pakatan Harapan due to differences in beliefs.

The Islamist party's president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang was reported claiming that PAS would not join either the ruling or federal Opposition coalitions as it contradicted the party's principles.

"PAS will not be together with Pakatan Harapan as there is a clash in policies and concepts, moreover there are leaders and parties in it that continue to oppose Islam openly," he was quoted saying by local daily Sinar Harian in Marang, Terengganu.

Hadi also compared BN and Pakatan to "live monitor lizards", which brought problems and "diseases" to the country.

"To join Pakatan, the monitor lizard is bigger and the disease is even more deadly," the Marang MP cryptically said.

PAS exited Pakatan last year after it refused to work with the DAP and severed ties with the party. This has led the party to seek new allies ahead of the next general elections.

Several PAS divisions have also recently conflicted with PKR, with ties between both parties up for review at the PAS muktamar next month.

PKR, DAP and PAS remain part of the Selangor state government headed by PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Azmin Ali.

Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM), led by former deputy prime minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, officially joined Pakatan Harapan Monday.

Muhyiddin: PPBM championing ‘Malay-led’ government



KUALA LUMPUR, March 26 — Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) said it would propose a Malay-led coalition, after the Bumiputera-centric party recently joined Pakatan Harapan.

News portal Malaysiakini reported PPBM president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin as saying in Padang Rengas, Perak, last night that the rights of both Malays and non-Malays would be protected.

"It must be a Malay-led government. I am mentioning this here not because I want to favour anyone, but because I know the majority of the rakyat are Malays," Muhyiddin was quoted saying.

"That's why we have to determine a new political coalition that is sustainable, not something that is only for today but for the long-term," he added.

Muhyiddin reportedly allayed concerns about the new coalition being "Malay-led" and said the DAP and PKR would be "part of the family."

The PPBM president also reportedly suggested that Pakatan Harapan be renamed "Barisan Rakyat" in the federal Opposition pact's fight against the ruling Barisan Nasional.

PPBM officially joined Pakatan Harapan, comprising PKR, DAP and Parti Amanah Negara, on Monday.

The party, whose chairman is former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, restricts non-Bumiputera to associate membership. They cannot vote or contest for party positions, although they may be appointed.

Kit Siang Pertimbang Bertanding Di Kerusi Lain Pada PRU-14



JOHOR BAHRU, 25 Mac (Bernama) -- Anggota Parlimen Gelang Patah Lim Kit Siang tidak menolak kemungkinan bertanding di kerusi parlimen lain pada pilihan raya umum ke-14 (PRU-14) sebagai strategi politik.

Pada masa sama Penasihat DAP itu berkata beliau juga mempertimbangkan kemungkinan bersara daripada dunia politik selepas lebih 51 tahun dalam arena tersebut.

"Semalam saya berada di Alor Star, Kedah dan pemimpin di sana ada mencadangkan supaya saya bertanding di Kedah.

"Kalau saya bertanding pada PRU-14, pilihan pertama saya ialah Gelang Patah tetapi sebab strategi parti cadangkan saya bertanding di kawasan lain, saya rela untuk timbangkannya," katanya kepada pemberita di sini Sabtui.

Ditanya mengenai ada aduan beliau tidak pulang melawat kawasan parlimennya, Lim berkata beliau tidak pernah lari daripada tanggungjawabnya di kawasan Gelang Patah.

Pada PRU-13, Lim menewaskan bekas Menteri Besar Johor Tan Sri Abdul Ghani Othman di kerusi Parlimen Gelang Patah dengan majoriti 14,762 undi.

Sebelum bertanding di Gelang Patah, Lim merupakan Anggota Parlimen Ipoh Timur sejak 2004.
