KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 23 — A PAS lawmaker reiterated today his party’s offer to form a so-called unity government with any party willing to cooperate in what it described as a viable political platform that could offer stability.

Kuala Nerus MP Datuk Mohd Khairuddin Aman Razali said the idea of a new political bloc comprising PAS was timely in light of the growing disquiet within Pakatan Harapan, which has come under fire because its leaders continue to bicker openly.

He added that the political crisis dogging the ruling coalition have affected the economy and prevented effective governance.

“Political instability begets economic instability,” he said in a statement.

“Maybe it’s time to look at an alternative political platform to solve the instability, one of a unity government proposed by the PAS president in 2008.

“PAS is ready to help!”

The Islamists secretly negotiated with Umno just after the 12th general election results were announced in 2008 to form a “unity government” in a bid to safeguard Malay-Muslim political dominance, after the opposition at the time made significant electoral gains.

Umno is no longer in power and had its federal seat tally greatly reduced after over a dozen of its MPs quit the party; Umno now has 37 parliament seats, down from 54 won in the 14th general election.

PAS won 19 federal seats in the May 9 polls.

So it is uncertain as to who Khairuddin was referring to when he suggested the unity government today, but it could be an offer to Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia, which he said PAS had no qualms co-operating with in the name of Muslim interest and unity.

“Ties with Umno as opposition must be strengthened,” he said.

“But ties with the administration led by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad must also be strengthened on the basis of political maturity as well as for the interest of Malay Muslim unity.

PAS MP: Cameron Highlands victory a true win for Islam, Malays

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 27 — A PAS leader has declared Islam to be the ultimate victor after its allies Barisan Nasional (BN) defeated Pakatan Harapan in the Cameron Highlands by-election yesterday.


Kuala Nerus MP Datuk Khairuddin Aman Razali claimed the polls' result reflected Muslim anger towards the new administration and its key component member party, the DAP.

The PAS central committee member said the Malays were united in their opposition against the attempt by the predominantly Chinese party to degrade their faith, and this unison could pave the way for Malay-Muslim political supremacy.

“DAP's defeat was a strong warning not to toy with Islam and the Malays or the needs of the common people,” Khairuddin tweeted.

“The victory of the BN and PAS-endorsed candidate sent a message that Malay-Muslim unity can deliver maximum political power for Malay-Muslims.”

BN's Ramli Mohd Nor bested PH candidate M. Manogaran by 3,238 votes to give the former ruling coalition its first victory after four by-elections had been held since the 14th general election in May last year.

The 61-year-old Ramli also made history by being the first Orang Asli MP to be elected.

Immediately after BN was declared the victor, PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang said the results was a positive development towards better coo-operation in the Opposition bloc.

Meanwhile acting BN chairman Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan declared the coalition's reflected the dissatisfaction of people towards the ruling government.

Mohamad also noted that the votes that had gone to PAS in GE14 came to BN’s favour this round.

BN and archrivals PAS forged closer ties to build a Malay-Muslim political platform that could pose a serious challenge to PH's political power.

But analysts have warned that the co-operation could drive communalism up at the expense of inclusiveness.

Despite initially protesting against the idea himself, Mohamad said PAS and BN will continue this strategy to empower the Muslim agenda in the country.

Dr Khairuddin Takiri; Khabar Angin Azmin Sebagai TPM

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 5 — A PAS lawmaker has thrown his support behind Datuk Seri Azmin Ali to become the deputy prime minister (DPM), amid rumours of a Cabinet reshuffle and the economic affairs minister’s promotion.

Datuk Khairuddin Aman Razali said Azmin would be the “best choice” for the post since Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has no interest in the post and would rather go straight to be prime minister.


“If Anwar wishes to be prime minister, surely his wife should not be the deputy,” said the Kuala Nerus MP.

“So the move to appoint Azmin now as DPM is seen as good for the transition plan because Anwar himself has stated many times he is uninterested with the DPM post.”

The PAS Syura Council member said Azmin is the “best choice” as he would lead to a more harmonious political environment between the government and opposition, calling him as more tolerant compared to other Pakatan Harapan (PH) leaders.

“Maybe his history together with PAS in Selangor government and his history with Umno leaders can be a reason for a more peaceful relationship,” he said.

Khairuddin also lauded Azmin’s appointment as the chairman of the Kelantan State Action Council, saying it could lead to more development in the PAS-led state.

The Kelantan chapter of PAS-splinter Parti Amanah Negara had last week opposed Azmin’s appointment, claiming Kelantan PH chief Husam Musa was promised the position.

Earier today, Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail said she had not heard anything about a Cabinet reshuffle after the Chinese New Year festival.

The deputy prime minister said any decision on changes to the Cabinet was the prerogative of the Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
