Exco posts: Selangor PAS will abide by any party decision

Delegate Zaidy Abdul Talib says PAS is not power crazy but wants to take power from those who are crazy by ensuring victory in GE14.

ALOR SETAR: Selangor PAS has pledged to comply with any decision the central leadership makes on the party’s involvement in the state government following strained relations with PKR.
A delegate from the state, Zaidy Abdul Talib, said the political situation there had come under the spotlight following calls by the ulama and youth wings to sever ties with PKR.
“I ask all Selangor delegates to affirm that we will abide by any decision made by the party’s leadership,” he said at PAS’ 63rd muktamar (general assembly) today.
“If we are to charge forward, we will. If we are told to retreat, we will.”
On April 28, PKR secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution called on PAS’ three executive councillors to give up their posts if the party decides to cut ties with PKR.
Several PAS leaders responded by saying the party would not quit from the state government, whose menteri besar is PKR deputy president Azmin Ali.
PAS has been a member of the Selangor government since the 2008 general election when it was part of a united opposition, that also included PKR and DAP, that wrested the state from BN.
The three opposition parties then formed the Pakatan Rakyat coalition which retained hold over the state in the 2013 general election.
Zaidy said PAS had participated in the administration of Selangor despite being given limited powers. He said the party would not give any excuses in serving the people.
“A leader’s every action is geared towards resolving issues faced by the people.
“We are not power crazy, but we want to take power from those who are crazy,” said Zaidy.
On April 27, PAS deputy president Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man had said Selangor was one of five states the party was eyeing to rule after the upcoming 14th general election (GE14), alongside Kelantan, Pahang, Terengganu and Kedah. -FMT
