Azmin upset over PAS’ stance on Sungai Besar
According to a PKR source, the PAS top leadership was uncompromising despite Azmin explaining in depth that the Islamist party won’t be short changed and its interests would be well protected.
“PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang is insisting that PAS must contest in spite of being informed that PKR has a better chance of winning the seat,” said the source.
He added that Selangor PAS commissioner Datuk Iskandar Abdul Samad, who was in negotiations with Azmin, was also unable to convince his party boss and had been pushed against the wall by the stalemate.

KUALA LUMPUR: PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Azmin Ali is reportedly disappointed over PAS’s announcement of wanting Meru assemblyman Dr Abdul Rani Osman to contest in the Sungai Besar by-election.
It was reported that Azmin intends to use his power as Chief Minister to withdraw all the facilities and privileges acquired over the years including media support from Selangorkini and TV Selangor, among others to PAS leaders.
According to sources, the Selangor MB will resort to more extreme actions after his threat to fire three PAS members from the Selangor exco to prevent them from fielding a candidate in the Sungai Besar by-election did not deter the Islamist party from doing so.
Quoting a PKR source, the PAS top leadership was reportedly uncompromising despite Azmin explaining in depth that the Islamist party won’t be short changed and its interests would be well protected if they refrain from contesting in Selangor.
