The PAS central committee, which was to decide on cooperation with Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) today, failed to arrive at a decision.
However, PAS deputy president Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man said his party would continue negotiating with Bersatu.
He added that the negotiations would go on indefinitely.
"The PAS negotiation committee will continue negotiating with Bersatu and we're looking at a number of matters with regard to the possible cooperation.
"There is no fixed time frame (to conclude negotiations) and we are not tied to any time frame," he said after the PAS central committee meeting in Gombak today.
Tuan Ibrahim had previously said a decision would be made by the central committee today.
He added there were a number of principles that needed to be complied with in the negotiations.
"We would like to reiterate that even though there has yet to be an overall agreement, we do not want them (Bersatu) to stand with parties that have been attacking PAS," he said.
The stance was similar to what PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang said this morning, insisting that PAS would not work with parties that have ties with DAP and Parti Amanah Negara.
Tuan Ibrahim said the negotiation committee is only tasked to negotiate and does not have the mandate to make a decision.
He said any decision taken would be made by the central committee and syura council.
On another matter, Tuan Ibrahim said he expected PAS to meet its objectives in the Act 355 rally tomorow.
"We thank all quarters and are confident the rally will achieve our objectives," he said.
The rally seeks to support amendments to the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 1965 to allow the syariah court to mete out stiffer penalties.- Mkini
