Much dissatisfaction among PAS members with Hadi's leadership, says UMNO man

"It’s definitely over for Muafakat Nasional,” says Nur Jazlan

An electoral pact between Bersatu and PAS for the Johor state elections is akin to the “last rites” being performed for the Muafakat Nasional (MN) alliance between PAS and UMNO, reckons Johor UMNO deputy chief Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed Rahmat.

Hopes of a reconciliation between UMNO and PAS were “as good as over”, he said in the wake of the resolution by PAS and Bersatu to stand together against UMNO in the Johor elections, reported FMT.

PAS and Bersatu had announced earlier today that they would contest the elections under the Perikatan Nasional (PN) banner.

The two main PN component parties issued a pledge with seven resolutions announcing their renewed vow to work together. The move also comes amid strained ties between PAS and UMNO.

Nur Jazlan told the news portal that PAS president Tan Sri Haji Abdul Hadi Awang himself has buried the MN for good with one of the resolutions emphasising that their support for Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob is "conditional”.

The message was a subtle threat to withdraw support for Ismail’s government, which could fall if MPs from Bersatu or PAS decide to withdraw support in the Dewan Rakyat.

Ismail’s government commands 115 seats to the 104 held by the opposition. However, Bersatu and PAS contribute 50 of the 115 seats. Barisan Nasional (BN) holds 41 seats, with 21 seats held by East Malaysia parties who support Ismail’s government.

Nur Jazlan said UMNO was ready for any eventuality. “If they do this (withdraw support), a general election will have to be called. We are just tired of parties that switch allegiance at the whims and fancies of their leaders and leave the people in a lurch,” he said.

He said the recent exodus from Bersatu, of senior leaders returning to UMNO’s fold, showed that members were losing confidence in the leadership of Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

As for PAS, he added, there was much dissatisfaction among grassroots members with the leadership of Hadi.

“In a way, I am thankful that PAS has decided to be with Bersatu again after its fling in Melaka which failed miserably. It’s definitely over for MN,” he said.

PAS was defeated in all eight seats the party contested in the Melaka elections in November, while Bersatu won two seats out of 15 contested. BN secured a landslide victory, winning 21 of the 28 seats in the state assembly.
