PAS Cancels Audience with Perak Sultan

PAS assemblymen will not be meeting with Perak ruler Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah today at Istana Kinta in Ipoh.

Perak PAS head Razman Zakaria said the appointment was called off on the orders of the party’s central leadership.


“We don’t want to look as though we are main-main (playing around),” he was quoted as saying in news reports.

Razman said they will seek an audience with Sultan Nazrin when there is a directive to do so from party headquarters.

The position of PAS in Perak is unclear as the party first said it would not participate in the new government before reversing its stance.

Umno, Bersatu and PAS are nominally allies at the federal level, with leaders of each party included in the Cabinet of Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

Ties between Umno and the offshoot Bersatu have remained testy, however, as the two were rivals until their cooperation with former Barisan Nasional parties to form the Perikatan Nasional federal government in March.
