KOTA BHARU: PAS has said the organisers of Bersih 5 have deviated from their original struggle, hence why the party decided against joining the rally.

Its secretary-general Takiyuddin Hassan said PAS also frowned on Bersih 4 participants’ action to stomp on images of the country’s top leader.

“Other than deviating from the original focus, the participants at the Bersih 4 rally also stomped on photographs of the country’s top leader, that we cannot accept,” he said last night.

He was met by reporters after a discourse entitled “26 Tahun Pentadbiran PAS Kelantan – Membangun Bersama Islam”.

Takiyuddin said PAS was invited to the meeting on Bersih 5, but the party, through its representative, informed the organisers that it did not want to be part of it.

Meanwhile, he said PAS did not meet or contact officially the newly formed Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) to work together.
