GE14: PAS will only allow PKR to contest in Kelantan


KOTA BARU: PAS will only allow PKR to contest seats in Kelantan in the coming general election (GE14), said Vice-President and Kelantan Deputy Menteri Besar Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah.

Mohd Amar said that if the Opposition parties wanted one-on-one fights against the Barisan Nasional (BN) in GE14, they must give way to PAS and PKR to do so.

“Other parties should stay away,” he told reporters here today.

He was responding to threats by Amanah, a splinter of PAS, that it might contest in Kelantan in GE14.

He added that for now, Amanah did not pose any threat to PAS in Kelantan.

Opposition parties DAP, PKR and Amanah have formed a pact called Pakatan Harapan which came about after DAP and PAS had fallout.
