Ahmad Said rubbishes Hadi’s ‘Pekan’ challenge as a political ploy

(TMI) – Terengganu BN Datuk Seri Ahmad Said claims that PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang’s decision to challenge Prime Minister and Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman Datuk Seri Najib Razak for the Pekan parliamentary seat in the upcoming general election is a political gimmick.

Ahmad, who is also Terengganu Menteri Besar, said if Hadi did not have to wait for approval from the president of PAS if he was sincere in his intent to put up a fight with Najib in Pekan.

“This is one of PAS’ gimmicks. No need to entertain this. He should just walk the talk. If he really does it he must be having a “death wish”,” he told reporters after attending a state-level Deepavali open house here last night.

Hadi is currently the MP for Marang and assemblyman for Rhu Rendang.
