Umno-PAS ties to be formalised through committee

Umno acting president Mohamad Hasan.

SEMENYIH: Unity of the ummah (community) will be the priority of the cooperation between Umno and PAS and a committee will be formed soon to formalise these ties.

Umno deputy president Mohamad Hassan said it was better for both parties to cooperate in a formal manner to achieve the agenda, which he described as not being merely in terms of politics.

“The collaboration between Umno and PAS currently is not formal.

“However, at the highest level, we have agreed to forge cooperation in a formal manner through the committee.

“We have agreed to hold consultations at the central level after the conclusion of the by-election for the Semenyih state seat.

“Umno will be led by me and PAS by the deputy president, Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man,” he told reporters during a visit to Kampung Sungai Jai in Beranang here today.

Mohamad did not state the number of leaders who will be on the committee.
