PAS today vowed to continue opposing wrongdoings by BN without having to be bound by any electoral pacts, said party president Abdul Hadi Awang.
In a statement today, Abdul Hadi said PAS would not entertain provocations by critics on social media or their political foes which seek to paint the Islamist party in a negative light.
This includes allegations that PAS was no longer interested in toppling the BN government, and that the party has received "dedak" (animal feed).
"PAS will continue its fight for justice for all races, combat corruption, abuse of power and misappropriation within the BN government, through a mature and peaceful approach," said Abdul Hadi.
He also said that the party was will continue to abide its Syura council's decision to avoid DAP and Amanah.
"At the same time, PAS is willing to talk to any party that respects PAS' policies," he added.
PAS has had a rocky relationship with the rest of the opposition after a quarrel with DAP led to the break-up of Pakatan Rakyat.
Scores of PAS leaders left the party to set up Amanah after a fractious internal election last year.
However, PKR and new opposition party, Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) are currently trying to convince PAS to work with them and ensure straight fights against BN in the next elections.
Umno and PAS leaders also appear to be cozying up to each other, collaborating on the amendments to Kelantan's Syariah Criminal Code (II) Enactment 1993 and the tabling of Abdul Hadi's motion to amend Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 1965.
Increasingly, Abdul Hadi and Umno president Najib Abdul Razak have been seen attending public events together, most recently during a protest against Myanmar's alleged mistreatment of the Rohingya minority.- Mkini
