Malaysiakini reports that PAS told Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak that it will hold unity talks with Umno only if PKR and DAP are included in the talks.
The statement was released by PAS Secretary-General Datuk Mustafa Ali today.
We view Mustafa's state as PAS' positive move to ensure the spirit of comradeship within the Pakatan Rakyat coalition is maintained and whenever any issues or matters in relation with a component party with another outside the coalition must be brought up and consulted amongst component parties.
A good start for the new PAS secretary-general for his move to ensure the unity in Pakatan Rakyat is preserved.
However, PAS must be very careful that any talks of "unity" offered by the BN-Umno coalition must be carefully reviewed and studied. It may be a trap set by them in order to break up the Pakatan Rakyat's coalition.
