Gua Musang MP Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah says grassroots members of Umno and PAS disagree with cooperation between parties, adding that the ruling coalition has a good chance to take over Kelantan. – The Malaysian Insight pic by Najjua Zulkefli, January 28, 2018.

UMNO veteran Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah has criticised the cooperation between Umno and PAS again, saying that the grassroots from both parties frown upon the move.

He said even as the top leaders from the two parties got along, whatever cooperation between them would fail without the support of grassroots members.

  • Hadi and Najib may kiss and embrace each other, but the grassroots of the respective parties wouldn’t buy such un unpalatable proposition for their parties.
    With such overt rejection of PAS by Kelantan Umno as demonstrated by Ku Li, will Hadi still go through with his plan of turning his party into suicide bombers to help Umno to retain power in the coming election, now that PAS looks increasingly like a spurned mistress of Umno?
    Even if Hadi is willing, will his party members and party supporters play ball with such a dastardly plan?

  • Nice try Ku Li. The damage is already done. UMNO has been playing PAS and Hadi does not even know it. Now to save face, he needs to tell the nation that his party's little coalition will try to form government. Even grassroots PAS members know that in a 3 cornered fight, PAS will help UMNO by splitting opposition votes. It is their dilemma, but I am confident that come election, PAS supporters will vote for Harapan. It's the only way to boot out UMNO from government, because they know it is pointless to support PAS since Harapan supporters and UMNO supporters won't support PAS.
