State chief: PAS to stay put in Selangor unless instructed otherwise

PAS representatives will not leave the Selangor state government unless there are instructions to do so from the central leadership or muktamar, said Selangor PAS commissioner Iskandar Samad.
"Maybe there are some people who said PAS should leave the (Selangor) state government but actually we are waiting for instructions from the muktamar or central leadership.
"Now there is no instruction to exit the state government so we just proceed," the PAS vice-president told reporters in Shah Alam today.
In a Facebook post yesterday, Iskandar had said that he was not surprised by pro-Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah) bloggers who criticised him for saying PAS would not leave the Selangor government.
"They want to get rid of PAS' influence in the government," he had said in the post.
A large number of PAS divisions in Kedah, Terengganu and Penang have also passed resolutions at their recent annual general meetings to urge the party to cut ties with PKR.
The resolutions are slated to be discussed at next month's muktamar or PAS annual general assembly.
Though PKR was formerly the only Pakatan Harapan coalition member to enjoy a cordial relationship with PAS, their relationship appears to have soured of late.
This was exacerbated by PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang's desire to see PAS rule Selangor, besides the states of Kedah, Perak, Terengganu and Kelantan.
When asked what the implications would be if PAS were told to leave the Selangor government, Iskandar said they would cross the bridge when they got to it.
"I don't want to speculate. Better not to speculate and let us have lunch," he added when approached during the break of the Selangor state assembly sitting.
Apart from Iskandar, there are two other PAS state exco members in Selangor.- Mkini
