    No more BN negotiations with PAS after GE15

    ANN/THE STAR – There will be no negotiation with Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS) after the 15th general election (GE15), said Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

    He said this was not because BN was arrogant but it saw PAS as a party that lacked strong principles in political relationships.

    “When BN forms the government (after GE15), people will come to us and we must say the time has passed.

    “We in BN chose a loyal friend who are willing to be with us during rain or shine and we chose friends who has strong principle,” he said during his speech at the gathering of BN’s solidarity, stability and prosperity programme at Dataran Seri Serdang, in Kulim Bandar Baharu yesterday.

    On October 13, Abdul Hadi announced that PAS had decided to strengthen its cooperation in Perikatan Nasional (PN) to face GE15, on the principle of uniting the ummah.

    On October 14, during a lecture before Friday prayers, Abdul Hadi further explained that the reason they decided not to work with United Malays National Organisation (UMNO) was because there were corrupt leaders in the party.

    He had stated that PAS did not want to work with UMNO as the latter was “in murky waters due to bribery” and “greedy to gain power to rule”.
