This just came in via NST Alert :
NST 17/08: Pakatan maintain its nomination of Wan Azizah as new Selangor MB; Azmin turns down nomination by Pas
NST 17/08: Mohamad Sabu: Pas has agreed to nominate Dr Wan Azizah and Azmin Ali to replace TS Khalid as Selangor MB, party will not ask for the post
Pas leaders are meeting today to decide on the Selangor leadership crisis.
My bet is that,, they are going to ask PKR to replace DS Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail with someone else as the candidate to take over the menteri besar post from TS Khalid Ibrahim.
I don't know whether the man is going to be PKR deputy president Azmin Ali as rumored, but definitely Pas wants a man for the job.
They just can't take it that they will be led by a woman.
It's just the way they understand the Islamic teachings.
Men must lead, women are to follow.
Okay, fine, I don't blame them. Most Malay men are like that.
In fact they want one men leads, four women follow.
I don't think that Pas is even interested in Malay muslim unity and such.
They will not work with Umno. They had made it very clear about that.
They had repeatedly said that they are going to stay with Pakatan.
They are more concerned with things such as macho leadership....and getting part of the RM3billion Khalid is keeping under his pillow.
The ulama clique in Pas, including Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat and DS Abdul Hadi Awang may had pledged their support for Khalid but they were known to have made U-turns before.
The whole thing is likely to them just a good opportunity to flex their muscle in Pakatan.
I think DAP and PKR better love Pas properly after this.
But the BN camp shouldn't despair. They just need to keep on working on improving themselves.
The Selangor crisis has opened a lot of eyes to the intrigues within the opposition coalition.
They can see now that the crooks there could be worse than those in BN.
** Anyway, I still harbor a small hope the Pas leaders will prove me wrong by continuing to support Khalid. Who knows....
