PUTRAJAYA, Jan 7, 2016:
PAS is seen to be bullied by its splinter group Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah) in the appointment of Local Council members in Selangor, according to a Barisan Nasional (BN) representative in the state.
BN State Assembly Secretary, Budiman Mohd Zohdi said he felt sympathy for the misfortune that befell PAS and questioned the criteria and yardstick that qualified Amanah to obtain eight seats in the council.
“I can see that PAS is being bullied and what is the yardstick for Amanah to obtain eight seats when the party had only been recently formed without any contribution to Selangor?
“They only have two state assembly seats which were seats that they won not through elections but via sympathy and victory from PAS,” he told reporters here today.
The Sungai Panjang assemblyman said the people should evaluate the issue diligently as the stability of the government was of utmost importance.
He claimed that the state’s Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali is seen to be saying different things on issues that involved PAS and Amanah.
“I can see that the matter will not be resolved and after this, Amanah will seek to claim Executive Council seats because it feels entitled to the posts.
