Pas will not sideline Bersatu, says Takiyuddin

KOTA BARU: Pas has denied that the party will sideline Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia.

Pas secretary-general Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan said the relationship between Bersatu and other parties in the Perikatan Nasional (PN) coalition remained strong and they have not faced any problem as what was claimed by DAP.

"I would like to confirm here today that we in PN do not face any problem. There is no problem especially with Bersatu and we will never abandon Bersatu as claimed.

"I would like to remind DAP not to interfere in the affairs of other parties. If they plan to interfere in things, they should do that to their friends (unity government parties) such as Umno and parties in Pakatan Harapan.

"PN will handle its own affairs and so far, we have no problem with Bersatu and our relationships is still intact," he told reporters after the Kelantanku Bersih 2023 celebration here today.

The programme was launched by Menteri Besar Datuk Mohd Nassuruddin Daud.

Takiyuddin, who is Kota Baru member of parliament, said Bersatu was not the only party in PN as the coalition also has parties such as Gerakan.

He was commenting on a recent statement by Johor DAP chairman Liew Chin Tong, who claimed that Bersatu was now weak it would most likely be abandoned by Pas.

He had said Pas was relevant because it controls the states in the north of the Peninsula, but the same could not be said about Bersatu.

Liew had said that the recent state election and by-election showed that Bersatu was losing its support, and this could possibly lead to it being abandoned by Pas.

The New Straits Times attempted to get comments from Bersatu deputy president Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu on the matter, but he has yet to answer to calls.
