PPBM-Umno rivalry drives PAS leaders further apart

PETALING JAYA: The split in PAS between those backing PPBM and those supporting Umno has been widening since it became part of the governing coalition one year ago, two sources close to the groups said today.

They said one group supported the Perikatan Nasional coalition (in which PAS and PPBM are allies) while the other wanted to strengthen the Muafakat Nasional partnership of PAS and Umno

One of them told FMT that the rift had been widening after several key PAS leaders gave their backing to PPBM and snubbed Umno.

“The other group has remained close to Umno,” he said, adding: “It’s like there are two leaders in PAS. One is aggressive, while the other leader who is close to Umno, is quiet.”

Those close to PPBM were hoping for court cases involving Umno leaders over alleged graft to be sped up before GE15, he said, adding that the desire to see some Umno leaders out of the picture was getting stronger within this faction.
