Thanks for Chempaka but see you in Rompin, PAS tells Umno

PAS will field a candidate in the upcoming Rompin by-election, said the party's vice-president Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man.

“Thank you for giving way in Chempaka, but we are set to move in Rompin. This was decided by the PAS central committee which met last night,” said Tuan Ibrahim in a Facebook post on Tuesday.

He added that there was no reason for PAS to give way to Umno considering that the Government is not giving the rakyat an easy time by introducing GST while continuing its wasteful ways with Malaysia's finances.

“PAS does not agree with the statement by Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob, who tried to persuade PAS to not contest the Rompin by-election to save the money, time and energy of both parties. If that is so, will they give PKR a free victory in Permatang Pauh using the same reasoning,” said Tuan Ibrahim.

He added that the Rompin by-election would give residents a platform for their complaints and grouses to be heard and published by the media.

He further noted that even though Umno had not contested the Chempaka by-election, it did not mean that Umno considered PAS a friend.

Voting for the Rompin parliamentary by-election will be held on May 5.

The nomination day for the by-election has been fixed for April 22, while early voting will be held on April 30.

The by-election follows the sudden demise of Tan Sri Dr Jamaluddin Jarjis in a helicopter crash on April 4.
