PAS deputy president Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man need not wait for the Selangor sultan to consent to the resignation of the party's three Selangor executive councillors, said a party leader.
Pokok Sena MP Mahfuz Omar said this is since PAS was the one who had decided to sever political ties to PKR, which heads the Selangor government.
The PAS lawmaker in a statement today pointed out PAS had finalised cutting ties with PKR and DAP claiming its former allies had "betrayed PAS and opposed PAS' agenda".
"This means PAS no longer has any connection with the two parties, and this would include any government that is headed by the two parties," said Mahfuz.
"From a moral political standpoint, PAS ought to separate itself from being involved or from rubbing shoulders in any capacity, with PKR and DAP who are accused to have betrayed PAS," he said.
"In such a situation, PAS' excos should immediately resign from their posts the moment the syura council affirms the decision at the muktamar [to sever ties …] without needing to be forced by anyone," he said.
He was responding to Tuan Ibrahim, who on Saturday told mStar Online PAS may be "forced to accept" Selangor Mentri Besar Azmin Ali's alleged decision asking the PAS excos to resign.
"We accept it (the exco posts) because the exco appointments come under the jurisdiction of the Selangor Sultan Sharafudin Idris Shah.
"PAS accepts it if (it is true) that this move has the consent of tuanku Sultan," he was reported telling mStar Online on Saturday.
Since finally cutting ties with PKR at the party's recent muktamar, all eyes have been on the three Selangor excos Iskandar Samad, Ahmad Yunus Hairi and Zaidy Abdul Talib, who have remained in the cabinet of their former ally PKR, which the party had maligned at their general meeting.
