KUALA LUMPUR (June 8): PAS is confident the parties that form the Perikatan Nasional (PN) government are ready for the 15th general election (GE15).
PAS secretary-general Datuk Takiyuddin Hassan said the party's political cooperation within the coalition, especially with Barisan Nasional (BN) and Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu), is getting stronger, hence strengthening the government of the day further, which is under PN.
“PAS is confident parties that form PN are already prepared to face the election, including finalising the allocation of seats for GE15, even though the date has not been decided.
"PAS will continue to be committed to supporting and defending PN under the leadership of Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and his cabinet line-up," he said in a statement today.
Takiyuddin said PAS is confident that the cooperation and tolerance of all PN members will further strengthen the PN government until the end of the term.
He said political cooperation between PAS and BN, in particular Umno, was concluded through the signing of a memorandum of understanding on Sept 14 last year, forming Muafakat Nasional (MN).
“The cooperation, which led to the formation of the federal gvernment following the fall of Pakatan Harapan (PH) on Feb 29, was followed by the signing of a memorandum of understanding by the top leadership of BN, Bersatu, PAS and parties in Sabah and Sarawak which led to the formation of PN,” he added.
