Mat Sabu says Amanah ready to take over Kelantan from PAS


(Bernama) – Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah) is ready to take over the Kelantan government’s administration from PAS in the coming 14th general election, its president, Mohamad Sabu said today.

He said it was necessary to “save” the Islamic government formed by the late PAS spiritual leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat.

However, Mohamad, popularly known as Mat Sabu, said it would depend on the people’s support for Amanah.

“If the support is good, we will discuss (to contest in Kelantan),” he told reporters after a ceramah in Kampung Padang Embun, Pasir Mas, last night.

For the time being, he said, Amanah would focus on increasing its membership nationwide and the party had not discussed with its allies, DAP and PKR, on contesting in the next general election.

“We have not discussed on the 14th general election, except for the Sarawak state election. We will try to get some seats to contest there,” he added.
