KOTA BARU, Feb 14 — PAS vice-president Datuk Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah today questioned the credibility of Pakatan Harapan that wants to become the government but at the same time, does not adopt the spirit of tolerance among its component parties.
Mohd Amar said in fact, now the people could see and evaluate for themselves the disputes and arguments in the opposition pact especially over state seats allocation including in Kelantan.
“We as voters will surely have doubts to choose Pakatan Harapan as the government as they are unable to demonstrate their tolerance in managing their own party.
“So, how can they be a good and effective government?” he told reporters after the the state executive council meeting at Kota Darul Naim Complex here today.
It was reported that last Monday, Kota Baru Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) Division expressed dissatisfaction over the constraints faced by the party including in the state seats allocation which was said to have been dominated by Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah).
According to an online news portal report, the Kelantan Pakatan Harapan had held six meetings for state seats allocation but had yet to reach a consensus on the matter.
The online portal also reported that as of last Saturday, Amanah was said to have been allocated 17 state seats while eight seats for PPBM, five seats for PKR and one for DAP.
Asked whether the dispute over the seat allocation was due to the fact that PPBM leadership bowed to pressure from DAP, Mohd Amar who is also Kelantan Deputy Mentri Besar said there was a possibility of that.
“It is possible (the PPBM leadership bows to pressure from DAP), but the big issue is that if they cannot solve it amicably, how can they be a good government. That is a big question and people can see and evaluate.
“(Parties in Pakatan Harapan) may also be greedy for the seats because each of them feels that they are strong. Everyone wants more seats,” he said. — Bernama
