GE13: Muhammad Taib to join us, says PAS leader

(The Star) – Former Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Muhammad Muhammad Taib (pic) is expected to join PAS this week, according to a senior PAS leader.

“Yes, Muhammad is joining us.

“This is pretty significant for us, a shot-in-the-arm despite his past sins of omission and commission,” he told news portal The Malaysian Insider.

“He just wants to see changes in the elections,” said the leader, who declined to be named.

He added that he was made to understand that Muhammad had filled up the nomination form and an announcement was expected soon.

Muhammad, a former minister, could not be reach for comment.

However, PAS vice-president Salahuddin Ayub told party organHarakahDaily that it was a former mentri besar from a northern state who was expected to quit Umno and join PAS.

Salahuddin said the former mentri besar was tired of the internal bickering within Umno.

The prospect of Muhammad joining the opposition met with much criticism in cyberspace.
