PAS and Umno negotiate seats for next general election

PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang says PAS-Umno collaboration is being enhanced.

KUANTAN: The PAS-Umno collaboration now includes seat negotiations to face the 15th general election, said PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang today.

He said the matter was based on recent developments in which the collaboration between the two parties had resulted in victory in a series of by-elections.

“The main committee (PAS-Umno collaboration) is constantly in the process of negotiating and enhancing cooperation in stages and it is up to them to finalise the matter.

“Among the things that have not yet been finalised are on the allocation of seats, candidates and other matters related to the 15th general election which require detailed study to ensure our victory,” he told a press conference after opening the PAS Dewan Muslimat annual assembly here today.

It is attended by 758 delegates from 179 areas, led by PAS Dewan Muslimat chief Nuridah Mohd Salleh.
