KUALA LUMPUR, March 5 — PAS’s central leadership has ordered its two rebel Kedah elected representatives to rejoin the state’s executive council, calling an end to the ongoing administrative impasse in the PAS-led government.
PAS secretary-general Datuk Mustafa Ali (picture) told a press conference today that the duo — Datuk Phahrolrazi Mohd Zawawi and Datuk Dr Ismail Salleh — have been “verbally” informed of the decision but that they have yet to formally notify the party of their acceptance.
“But we are optimistic they will do so,” Mustafa said, pointing out that both men had earlier said they would leave the matter up to their party’s central leadership to decide.
The Islamist party has also decided to activate a steering committee tasked to monitor and offer input to any PAS-led government or any entity to which its leaders are attached, he added.
“This decision was unanimously accepted by all PAS central leadership members,” he said. - malaysiainsider
