KUALA LUMPUR – The President of Pas, Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang teased political party leaders who allegedly tried to ‘buy’ the Members of Parliament (MPs) to gain their support in forming a new government.
He said, there is no need to buy the people’s representatives but on the contrary, it should be up to the people to choose their government and leaders.
“That’s what been told. It’s better to leave it to the people. If they want to buy, buy the people. Do not buy the MPs. Buy people. It is up to the people if they want to be sold or not. Dissolve the Parliament,” he said in a news conference in Rusila, Marang today.
Abdul Hadi, who is also the Member of Parliament of the area said, PAS insists that it wants a General Election following the unresolved political turmoil.
He said, the party is ready to hold another election so that the people can determine the government.
When asked about the current political crisis, Abdul Hadi repeated that PAS had earlier proposed a motion to support the leadership of Dr Mahathir in the coming Dewan Rakyat sitting so that he would be able to be in office until the end of the term.
However, he said that the support was weak when the other political parties were not serious about the motion.
“As the others are not supporting (the motion), it is meaningless for us to support. We do not have enough of voice.
“Originally, we wanted to bring a motion to the Parliament to support Tun M. As the response was not positive from everyone, including DAP and PKR who are no longer supporting him, UMNO is also not supporting him, it is meaningless for us to support.
“Therefore, it is better to leave it to the people,” he said. -MalaysiaGazette
