KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 19, 2015:
Malay rights group Perkasa has taken a positive view of the meeting between Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang at the Multaqa Al-Azhar Malaysia Regional Alumni 2015 here recently.
Its vice-president, Syed Osman Syed Mansor, said the meeting signalled a cooperation between the two big parties, and this should be appreciated.
“If the cooperation materialises, Perkasa’s dream becomes a reality.
“Whether it will be a formal coalition or simply a cooperation, it is a technical matter,” he said after opening the Wira Perkasa Malaysia Annual Special Convention 2015 at the Sultan Sulaiman Club here.
He stressed the cooperation would strengthen the core political struggle of Malays and if cooperation between the two political parties did happen, it would certainly have the support of Perkasa.
He said Perkasa would continue to support the party based on three principles, namely Alif Ba Ta.
Alif, Ba and Ta are the first three alphabets of the Arabic language, signifying A, B, and T – the beginning alphabets of the Malay words agama (religion), bangsa (race) and tanahair (country).
Meanwhile, Syed Osman in his speech took a swipe at political parties that did not allow its own vice-president to officiate conferences by the party wings.
He said Perkasa would always give opportunity to its members or representatives to speak with proper manners.
“When we speak, there should be consideration and sincerity,” he said.
