PAS has cautioned PKR to be careful of its “cunning friend” in Pakatan Harapan, the DAP, who has stolen PKR candidates in previous elections and announced them as DAP’s new members.
PAS Sarawak will be contesting 11 state seats in the upcoming Sarawak election despite some of these seats being contested by its former ally, DAP.
The party’s state commissioner Jofri Jaraiee said this decision was PAS’ prerogative and not subject to Pakatan Harapan’s approval as the Islamist party was not part of the new Opposition coalition.
“However, PAS Sarawak is willing to discuss its seats with PKR based on the decision made by PAS’ central committee to maintain political cooperation with PKR. “For the record, PAS had previously contested five state seats,” Jofri said in a statement today.
PAS’ 11 seats are Beting Maro, Sebuyau, Sadong Jaya, Muara Tuang, Samariang, Jepak, Samalaju, Lambir, Senadin, Batu Kawa, Dudong.
According to Jofri, PAS presently has more than 3,000 activists who are ready to be deployed at any time to help the party during Sarawak’s 11th state election.
“PAS will continue to plan our strategies to fight for the people. Although PAS has yet to win any seat in Sarawak
