PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang’s plan for his party in the 14th general election will likely lead to the loss of the seats he holds at the parliamentary and state levels in Terengganu, a study revealed.  

This latest study comes as Hadi leads PAS to contest against both main opposition pact Pakatan Harapan and the ruling coalition Barisan Nasional.

  • Does it not depend on Najib's choice of candidate in Marang? If Hadi loses his seat, he will lose leadership of PAS - Najib cannot afford that. Najib will take the states - Kelantan and Terengganu but keep Hadi on top of PAS to play spoiler of the opposition.

    • What future holds for Hadi if he really ends up as the only PAS winner in Trengganu? He will be reduced to a nobody in PAS. Your analysis is out of logic.

    • IF Hadi is only winner in Terengganu, PAS would lose almost all seats elsewhere, then PH would wintoo many seats and Najib himself will not survive, even possibly UMNO could lose.

  • Not before have we seen a political leader taking a suicidal move. This GE is a real eye opener.

  • PAS under Hadi has taken the role of Umno’s suicide bomber to help Umno to retain power. This is of course high treason to its sacrosanct cause of advancing Islam as a complete way of life, for which, toppling the materialistic and corrupt Umno regime is a must.
    If only Pakatan Harapan would use this as its main campaign theme against PAS and succeed in convincing the latter’s rural supporters, this self-claimed Islamic party will be completely politically annihilated come GE 14.
