"If we (PAS) have to go it alone, we accept that. This is the history of PAS.


PAS ready to exit Pakatan, says Ulama Council – Bernama


PAS's Ulama Council acting head, Datuk Ahmad Yakob, says the party is prepared to exit the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) coalition over the Selangor menteri besar saga. – The Malaysian Insider file pic, August 10, 2014.PAS's Ulama Council acting head, Datuk Ahmad Yakob, says the party is prepared to exit the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) coalition over the Selangor menteri besar saga. – The Malaysian Insider file pic, August 10, 2014.PAS's Ulama Council today said the party was prepared to exit the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) coalition over the Selangor menteri besar saga.
Earlier, the party's spiritual leader, Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat, had said PAS was prepared to leave PR because of differences on the sacking of Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim by his party, PKR.
The council's acting head, Datuk Ahmad Yakob, said this would be nothing new as PAS had exited Barisan Nasional (BN) and an alliance with the now defunct Semangat 46 party to pursue its struggle on its own."If we (PAS) have to go it alone, we accept that. This is the history of PAS that was mentioned by Tok Guru (Nik Aziz). PAS's struggle has never been easy.

The other partner in PR is DAP, which has also backed PKR.
"PAS's Shura Council (the party's highest decision-making body) made the decision (on Khalid’s position as MB). It was based on constitutional provisions," he said today.
On Friday, Nik Aziz and his deputy, Datuk Dr Haron Din, issued a joint statement saying that the Shura Council held the view that Khalid should remain as the MB so long as he had not betrayed the people’s trust.
Ahmad, who is the Menteri Besar of Kelantan, however, said he wanted to see the issue resolved amicably and denied the crisis had caused a split in PR.
"Not at all. It helps us mature in politics and I ask everyone to remain calm and find the best solution.
"If the Selangor assembly is dissolved, that will also be a problem."
Asked whether Khalid should join PAS now that he was an independent, Ahmad said this was Khalid’s decision. – Bernama, August 10, 2014.
