Pas and PKR yet to resolve issues on candidates contesting against each other


Salahuddin AyubKUALA LUMPUR, April 22- PAS and PKR have yet to resolve the issue of their candidates contesting each other in one parliamentary and six state constituency seats in the poll on May 5, said PAS vice-president Salahuddin Ayub.  He said a meeting would be held very soon to resolve the matter. Describing it as an isolated issue, he told reporters that a Central Committee meeting today would discuss the matter.

“There will be a meeting in the near future and all decisions will be announced after the meeting,” he told reporters after the submission of PAS membership forms by former Selangor menteri besar Tan Sri Muhammad Muhamad Taib, at the party headquarters, here today.

Muhammad handed over his application forms to PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang.  Asked about the possibility of PAS not cooperating with PKR if the issue could not be resolved, Salahuddin said the matter would not arise.


Hadnan Mohamad is contesting the Labuan parliamentary seat on a PAS ticket while Tan Sri Ibrahim Menudin is contesting the same seat on a PKR ticket. The two political parties are also contesting the state seats of Sungai Acheh, Kota Damansara, Bukit Besi, Kota Putra, Seberang Takir and Panti.
