SHAH ALAM: Amanah is made up of former PAS leaders who realised that the break-up of Pakatan Rakyat would not help the opposition defeat Barisan Nasional in a general election.
Shah Alam Amanah division chief Azli Yusof said this was why these PAS leaders left and decided to form the new party, because an alliance would have a better chance.
“The moon wanted to stand alone. But no party can be strong on its own. Even Barisan Nasional (BN) is made up of 13 parties.
“We remembered how PR was able to win Perak, Selangor and Penang. We knew it was because of the strength of the coalition and so we decided to leave PAS and form Amanah.”
Azli then reminded the audience at a ceramah here today that their two-term incumbent and Pakatan Harapan candidate for Shah Alam, Khalid Samad, was no longer in PAS.
“It is hard to not see the moon when you look at Khalid,” he said, referring to the PAS logo.
Earlier today at a press conference here, Khalid said there were still those in Shah Alam who did not know that he was no longer in PAS.
