KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 3 — PAS members are just as capable as Bersatu’s Datuk Seri Azmin Ali to helm the Selangor government, the Islamic party’s state secretary Roslan Shahir Mohd Shahir told news portal Free Malaysia Today.
Roslan was responding to news reports that Azmin is Perikatan Nasional’s (PN) best bet to take the Pakatan Harapan-led state.
On January 26, FMT published a report quoting political analyst Azmi Hassan, a senior fellow at the Nusantara Academy for Strategic Research, as saying that Azmin is PN’s best bet for the role.
Azmi had compared Azmin’s chances to several sacked Selangor Umno leaders who are rumoured to join PN such as Tan Sri Noh Omar.
The mandate for the current Selangor state assembly expires on August 26.
