Takiyuddin: PAS will fare better in GE14 standing alone

Takiyuddin-Hassan1

KOTA BHARU: PAS stands a better chance at contesting more seats in the upcoming 14th General Election (GE14) as it is no longer tied to any (political) party or pact except for Gagasan Sejahtera, says PAS secretary-general Takiyuddin Hassan.

He said he was now confident the party stood a better chance contesting in urban areas due to the growing acceptance by city folks.

“We might be contesting in more than 100 parliamentary seats, with the target of winning at least 40 seats,” he told reporters at the Kota Bharu PAS’ 50th anniversary here last night.

Takiyuddin said PAS might contest in the Kuantan parliamentary constituency in Pahang as the party was now dominating the Beserah and Tanjung Lumpur state assembly constituencies there.
