Pas denies racism, sexism for opposing PKNS boss

SHAH ALAM, Nov 1 - Denying racism or sexism for opposing Low Siew Moi's appointment as PKNS general manager, Pas Selangor commissioner Datuk Hassan Ali said it preferred "new blood" to manage the state corporation.

"I am prepared to support the appointment of a new PKNS general manager even if the person is not a Malay or a man, as long as they are professional and can provide a better future for PKNS," Hassan told the Siasah Daily news portal yesteday.

Hassan said his opinion was based on allegations that attacked the character of Low, who was corporate and accounts deputy general manager, and just-retired PKNS general manager Datuk Harun Salim.

His deputy, Shah Alam MP Khalid Samad, concurred that PKNS needed new blood.

"If we say that the PKNS management is bad, then I assume Madam Low is also bad as she is one of the senior managers there and not because she is not Malay. Anyone can lead PKNS as long as they understand its policies and aims and follow directives from the board led by the Menteri Besar," Khalid said.

"We don't want to appoint a Malay only to see the person not performing and causing Pakatan Rakyat trouble," he added.

Kerana Tidak Istiqamah Maka Akhirnya Terpinggir

Keputusan PRU14 sekarang telah diketahui umum. Pakatan Harapan (PH) berjaya mengambil alih Putrajaya dan negeri-negeri di seluruh Negara kecuali Perlis, Pahang dan Sarawak yang kekal bawah BN sambil Kelantan dan Terengganu jatuh pada PAS.

Walaupun akan ada yang berkata bahawa PAS telah berjaya dengan keputusan anatara yang paling cemerlang dalam sejarahnya, hakikatnya ianya sebenarnya boleh jauh lebih baik dari itu. Malangnya, sifat gopoh dan kurang yakin kepada pendekatan yang diikutinya sejak zaman reformasi telah menyebabkan PAS semakin terpinggir dari arus perdana politik negara. Ia kembali sebagai parti pantai timur dan kawasan kampung Melayu setelah beraksi cergas di pantai barat dan kawasan bandar pada tahun-tahun pasca reformasi. Cogan kata “PAS for all” kian tidak kedengaran dan PAS kembali sebagai parti bersifat eksklusif memperjuangkan agenda khas bagi masyarakat Muslim dan Melayu.
