Selangor Pas delegate wants party leadership to take a stand on PKR ties

ALOR STAR: A Selangor Pas Ulama delegate has called for the party leadership to take a stand on Pas' ties with PKR.


Nik Bakri Nik Mat said the Selangor Pas Ulama wanted to "immediately end ties" with PKR, after Selangor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Azmin Ali allegedly insulted Pas by calling out a 'lebai'.


"Offending one another in politics is normal. But when Selangor Menteri Besar insulted (us) and called out a 'lebai', we cannot accept it.


"In fact, we (Pas Ulama Selangor) wanted to end (Pas-PKR ties) immediately. We Ulama in Selangor have always advised the MB, in the future, please do not be a loose cannon and insult the Ulama," he said, during the debates at the Pas Ulama assembly here, today.


It was reported that Azmin, who is also PKR deputy president, tweeted a comment lambasting a 'Pak Lebai', who wanted to takeover Selangor.


Azmin however did not name anyone, but his tweet came after former Pas Youth chief Nik Abduh Nik Aziz said Pas may no longer give way in the next general elections to PKR to take the lead in Selangor.


Nik Bakri said, during the Sungai Besar by-elections, it was clear that PKR was siding Pas' splinter group, Parti Amanah Negara (PAN).


"It is very clear that PKR is on PAN's side, (but) we are still trying not to cut ties (with PKR).


"To us, we have already made our decision but we don't want to overstep the Ulama leaders here," he added.
