Pakatan Rakyat today said they agreed to disagree on the thorny issue of the implementation of the hudud law when its top leaders failed to come to a consensus. Speaking after a meeting lasting about three hours ending at midnight, PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim said that the decision was to respect both PAS and DAP’s divergent stand on the matter. “It’s quite clear that DAP opposes it and PAS and PKR respect this… We acknowledge the differences in ideology in Pakatan, as a democratic coalition and this involves PAS’ stand on syariah law,” he said.
