KUALA LUMPUR: Even though Pakatan Rakyat had successfully held its first convention on Saturday (19 Dec), PAS President Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang said Sunday (20 Dec) that it is still not the ideal time for the three political parties to register as a coalition as they are having different political ideas.

“It is not the time for the three parties to register and PAS doesn't want to hastily make any registration decision,” said Hadi.

“It is not necessary for Pakatan Rakyat to be a political party. Most importantly, we must first come out with views that are agreed by all and set aside (tangguh) views that we do not agree,” he said.

He said that the country must change for the moment and Pakatan Rakyat does not need to hastily register as a registered political party needs to have its own system and methods.

Hadi said that the three parties are having different political ideas but they are sharing same views on some essential issues, including tyranny, justice and defending the poor.

PAS insisted on having an Islamic Country while DAP opposed to religious rule and PKR stressed on social justice and it played a coordinating role in Pakatan Rakyat.

Hadi said that Pakatan Rakyat will not register as a coalition for the moment. Instead, they will first discuss on cooperation.

As for whether Pakatan Rakyat would register in the next general elections, Hadi said they will wait until then to discuss. (Translated by SOONG PHUI JEE/Sin Chew Daily)
