There’s light at the end of tunnel, PAS says on Umno-Bersatu dispute

PASIR MAS (BERNAMA) – The dispute between Pertubuhan Kebangsaan Melayu Bersatu (Umno) and Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) will be resolved amicably, said Parti Islam Se-Malaysia (PAS) Deputy President Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man.

He said PAS is confident the conflict between the two parties will be settled.

“There is still light at the end of the tunnel,” he told reporters when asked whether PAS was worried over the tussel between Umno and Bersatu.

The Environment and Water Minister said this when met after his visit to the landslide area at Dataran Air Muleh, Kampong Pohon Celagi yesterday.

Commenting on the PAS-Umno meeting last week, Tuan Ibrahim said among the topics discussed was on strengthening Muafakat Nasional (MN) cooperation. “We have indeed been having meetings twice a week. In our meetings we do touch on the general election (GE) but only indirectly,” he said.

On claims that Kuala Langat Member of Parliament Dr Xavier Jayakumar quit PKR because he was involved in a corruption case and wants to avoid prosecution, Tuan Ibrahim said the matter should be handed over to the authorities for further investigation.
