DAP wants PAS president to make official stand on Islamic state agenda
KUALA LUMPUR: The DAP has called for PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang to clearly state the party's stand on the hudud controversy even as the two parties remained unyielding on the issue.
Its national chairman Karpal Singh is demanding that Abdul Hadi make an official stand on whether PAS will continue its Islamic state agenda.
Party secretary-general Lim Guan Eng has threatened a mass resignation of his party's top leaders from the top Pakatan council if it is included in the group's election manifesto.
Kelantan Mentri Besar Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat, seemingly impatient over the tug-of-war with DAP, said since his state government had already passed the hudud enactment, the action to implement it must now come from the syariah courts.
