IT is highly unlikely that Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad made up his remarks about PAS agreeing not to back Barisan Nasional in the Semenyih by-election, said Muhyiddin Yassin. 

The Bersatu president said although he does not know what transpired in the meeting between PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang and the prime minister on Friday, he said the statement must be true as Dr Mahathir is not one to make up stories.

  • First of all why did Mahatir entertain a request of meeting on a personal basis when the other party is opposition . Mahatir is an old experience and a season politician . He should have somebody of PH around with him. Rightfully the DPM or even LGE participating in the meeting as the concerns is pertaning to oil royalty and financial help. Knowingly that PAS Hadi has no love lost with Mahatir , there should be camera recording of their meeting so that it is official as it has been stated in the media of their impending visit. Can we really believe now from whatever both parties are telling from the drama which has unfolded. It clearly tells a story that both have personal agenda in their mind. More selfishly for own self serving purposes. Devils in the making.

  • What is PAS Secretary talking about.... will Not support BN in the By-election but on a small scale??
    First, they can be no line drawn between small and large scale!! Yes is yes, No is no!
    Secondly, for the PAS Secretary to issue a statement to say that PAS will not support BN in the by-election strongly suggests that, that would have been the topic of discussion between the PM and PAS delegation.. and PAS agreed to it.
    The part on the small scale support, is only to appease BN leaders..
    Ask Hadi directly. If he avoids or declines to answer, you already know why and you have your answer .
