MUKTAMAR After two full days of tense debates at the 60th PAS muktamar, most party leaders today adopted a conciliatory tone in their winding-up speeches.
However, PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang, who was the last to speak, turned the heat back up, describing two of the party’s Selangor state assemblypersons as “lackeys”.
Hadi, in his final speech at the muktamar, accused PKR of “stealing” and “buying” two of its assemblypersons, making it possible for the party along with DAP to claim a commanding majority in the Selangor state assembly.
“We do not take lightly the two state assemblypersons who were willing to cross over, there are those who became brokers and those who became lackeys,” he told delegates in Batu Pahat, Johor.
He said this in reference to Saari Sungib (Hulu Kelang) and Hasnul Baharuddin (Morib) who had backed PKR president Wan Azizah Wan Ismail as Selangor menteri besar.
“Did not all of our state assemblypersons take a religious oath?” he asked.
