PAS’ move to use the logo of Perikatan Nasional (PN) in the Melaka election on Nov 20 will not affect its ties with Umno in Muafakat Nasional, the state Umno says.
Melaka Umno deputy chairman Mohamad Ali Mohamad said Umno would continue finding ways and means to collaborate with PAS for the benefit of Muslims in the country.
“Umno will not sever its ties with PAS. We may not know why they decided to take that move but we believe all members of PAS were also hoping to find a good meeting point between PAS and Umno in ensuring the well-being of Muslims, especially the Malays in the country,” he said when met after an event yesterday.
PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang had announced that his party would use the PN logo in the Melaka polls after the matter was approved during the PAS central working committee’s meeting.
