ARFA YUNUS


ALOR STAR: Pas Youth has accepted the motion to end the Islamic party's "tahaluf siyasi", or political cooperation, with PKR without debating it.

This was announced by Pas Youth's deputy permanent chairman, Dr Riduan Mohd Nor, during the party's 63rd general assembly, or Muktamar, today.

The motion, which was moved by Terengganu delegate Ramlan Mahmood, received unanimous support from all delegates present.

"Pas Youth now approves the motion to cut ties with PKR, without a debate," Riduan said, while the delegates cheered in agreement.

The motion will now be passed to Pas’ Central Committee for consideration, and the final decision will be made by the Syura Council.

It is believed that Pas President Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang will announce the fate of Pas-PKR ties in his speech tonight at Kompleks Pas Kedah, here.
