Hadi Awang: No more talk, PAS will contest by-elections
Speaking to reporters at the parliament lobby, PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang said they had already identified its candidates.
"The negotiations are over. PAS has made a decision to contest," he said.
Asked if he had met with PKR's Azmin Ali on the by-election, he replied that he had not.
When asked if PKR was pleased with the outcome of negotiations he said; "ask PKR if they are satisfied or not".
He said that PAS would field local candidates, adding that PAS had won in Arau with a majority of 1,000 before.
PAS was said to be in talks with PKR to prevent a three-cornered fight against Barisan Nasional during the two by-elections on June 18.
