PAS has agreed to allow its grassroots leaders to continue talks with rival opposition parties, PKR and Bersatu, at the state level in preparation for the 14th general election.

  • PAS is like that abusive husband whose wives have divorced him taking the kids but his mistress (PKR) keep going back for more abuse. At some point, everyone will give up on the punching bags..

    • Every Selangorian knows that the priority of the mistress (PKR) is to be allowed to stand alone without opposition at Gombak and Bukit Antarabangsa. Nothing else matters or more important ..... including even more abuses .....
