PAS has always been receptive to cooperating with other Opposition parties and ensuring straight fights with BN, granted they do not interfere with the Islamist party’s internal affairs.
In stating so, PAS President Abdul Hadi Awang stressed that the party had never “closed the door” to such possibilities.
“But when you enter, don’t disturb the house,” the Marang lawmaker told reporters at the Dewan Rakyat lobby, alluding to DAP.
He was asked to comment on PAS Spiritual Adviser Hashim Jasin’s statement yesterday that the party was open to negotiations with other Opposition parties to fight the ruling coalition in the 14th General Election.
DAP and PAS had severed political ties last year following their long-standing spat over implementing hudud in Kelantan.
Hadi’s statement today however offers some hope that Opposition parties can set aside their differences.
Last month, Hashim had stressed that the party would never cooperate with DAP again.
