'No offers made to Pas to join unity govt' - Zahid
BAGAN DATUK - Umno president Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi has denied the claims made by Pas president Tan Sri Abdul Hadi Awang that there are those in the government who offered Pas to join the unity government.
He said Pas should continue with the relationship it had with Bersatu in Perikatan Nasional (PN).
“It is outside of my knowledge. I think it’s better for them to continue their relationship with Bersatu.
“Don’t simply claim that anyone wants to offer him anything,” he said briefly when asked to comment on Hadi’s statement.
Zahid said this after officiating the MyFutureJobs Carnival and the Housewives Social Security Scheme (SKSSR) 2023 at the Dato’ Haji Abdullah Ahmad Multipurpose Hall in Hutan Melintang here, today.
Yesterday, it was reported that Hadi claimed that such offer was made because Pakatan Harapan (PH) especially PKR realised that its position was not stable with the total Malay seats of the party not being close to that of Pas.
The Marang MP said he was open to any offers from any individuals, but the offer must not fall out of Pas’ principles, objective and direction.
