Quick poll: Should Pas quit Pakatan?

Share with us your views in the poll and read what a KL-based political analyst has to say further below.


The KL-based political analyst tells us what he thinks:

Pas betrayed the PKR and the DAP by rejecting the nomination of Wan Azizah as MB of Selangor.

Pas’ CWC gave the support but Hadi overruled the CWC even after originally agreeing to it. If Pas has a good look at the seats it won, especially in Selangor, it was mainly due to the landslide support of the non-Malays in the PKR and the DAP.

In GE 13, Pas won only 21 seats, compared with the DAP’s 38 and the PKR’s 30. In around eight to nine seats that Pas won such as Shah Alam, Kota Raja and Sepang (Selangor), Parit Buntar, Bukit Gantang and Temerloh, it was due to the strong support of its coalition partners. So, it is Pas who should listen to its partners and not the other way round. (more…)

– the unhappiness over not being consulted over the Kajang Move runs deep. So there is some dissatisfaction with Anwar’s unilateral moves and Pas having to make one concession too many. (more…)
