PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang's stance not to cooperate with any parties that have relations with DAP and Parti Amanah Negara has by default voided cooperation with PKR, said Pokok Sena MP Mahfuz Omar.
As such, the PAS lawmaker said his party now needs to consider quitting the PKR-led Selangor government.
"It is clear that PKR, like Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu), are already having political cooperation with DAP and Amanah.
"Therefore, in principle, the cooperation between PAS and PKR is void based on the position taken by the PAS president," he said in a statement today.
Mahfuz said PAS no longer needed to wait until the party's muktamar in April to decide its position in relation to PKR.
Last Sunday, Hadi slammed the door on cooperating with Bersatu despite ongoing negotiations between his lieutenants and Bersatu leaders.
He insisted that PAS will have nothing to do with parties cooperating with DAP and PAS splinter Amanah.
Mahfuz said the wider implication also meant that PAS need to consider resigning from exco positions in Selangor as well as other positions in village committees and government-linked companies.
"It would be best for PAS to avoid the perception that the party is clinging to material and power derived from its positions in the Selangor government.
"It is time for (Selangor PAS chief) Iskandar Abdul Samad, who is also PAS vice-president and his exco colleagues from PAS, to resign from their politically appointed positions," he said.
Mahfuz also lamented Hadi's position at a time when the people were hoping for a grand opposition coalition to take on BN, which he claimed was plagued by corruption.
"Based on the decision by PAS (not to work with parties cooperating with DAP and Amanah), all opposition parties can conclude that the 14th general election will see three-cornered fights.
"There is no need for any more efforts to convince PAS to join the opposition coalition," he said.
He added that all parties, including PAS, will need to figure out how to topple BN in the context of multi-cornered fights.- Mkini
