PAS has revealed that the party did not mind losing GE14 while the country was weighed down with huge debts.
According to mStar, vice president Datuk Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah said, however, the party wants to take Putrajaya in the next general election.
“How could we finance such a huge debt? Let others settle Malaysia’s debt first, and then we’ll take Malaysia in five years,” he said in a speech that has gone viral.
Mohd Amar, who is also Kelantan Deputy Chief Minister, highlighted PAS’ defeat in Serambi Mekah in 1978.
He said much of the development in Kelantan happened during Barisan Nasional’s administration before PAS returned to power in 1990.
“Like us (PAS) lost in 1978, we were sad. But God is smart, within 12 years… He allowed others to rule and to develop…until the state is ready for us to return to power,” he said.
