PAS today expressed confidence that the dispute between Umno and Bersatu will be amicably resolved.
“There is still light at the end of the tunnel,” PAS deputy president Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man told reporters in Pasir Mas when asked if the party was worried about the tussle between Umno and Bersatu.
On the PAS-Umno meeting last week, he said the topics of discussion included strengthening the cooperation in Muafakat Nasional.
“We have indeed been having meetings twice a week. In our meetings we do touch on the general election but only indirectly,” he added.
On talk that Kuala Langat MP Xavier Jayakumar had quit PKR because he was involved in a corruption case and wants to avoid prosecution, Tuan Ibrahim said the matter should be left to the authorities for further investigation.
“Leave the investigations to the authorities. We (PAS) must make it clear, there will be no compromise and every allegation must be proven. The court must investigate if it is true that he was involved.
“However, don’t make such an accusation each time someone switches party, because several Amanah members had also jumped ship (left PAS),” he said.
Last Saturday, Xavier the former water, land and natural resources minister and PKR vice-president, announced his immediate resignation from his post citing frustration with the current political situation.
He said he had decided to become an independent MP who would support the government bloc under the leadership of Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin.
