Zahid’s conditions not Umno’s decision, says PAS No. 2

Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man says Umno should prioritise common interests over individual views.

(MalaysiaNow) – PAS says the conditions set by Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi for political cooperation ahead of the 15th general election (GE15) are “unsuitable” and do not reflect the official stand of the Barisan Nasional (BN) lynchpin.

PAS deputy president Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man said Umno should prioritise common interests over the views of individuals who might cause trouble in the days to come.

Speaking to MalaysiaNow, he said any talks between the parties should refer to the same issues.

“For now, PAS has its own rights,” he said when asked about PAS’ view of the conditions for strengthening the political understanding with Umno forged under the Muafakat Nasional (MN) pact as part of preparations for GE15.

“We welcome Umno’s desire to unite the ummah but for us, the conditions are not very suitable.”
