PETALING JAYA: PAS will remain in opposition instead of joining the Anwar Ibrahim-led government, says party secretary-general Takiyuddin Hassan.
Takiyuddin said the Islamic party will play a constructive role by advising all parties to ensure good governance of the country.
Yesterday, Perikatan Nasional (PN) chairman Muhyiddin Yassin said the coalition, which PAS is a part of, would function as a check and balance to Anwar’s administration by being in the opposition rather than join the unity government.
“After taking into account various considerations and public opinion, PAS will not join the government led by Pakatan Harapan and DAP in order to respect the wishes of the voters who supported PAS and PN in the general election,” Takiyuddin said in a statement.
PAS had previously thanked Anwar for inviting PN to join his unity government, saying the matter would be discussed among the coalition’s component parties.
Anwar’s unity government comprises PH, Barisan Nasional and Gabungan Parti Sarawak, with support from MPs from Muda, Warisan, Parti Bangsa Malaysia and Gabungan Rakyat Sabah.
