As expected, the ulama faction won the Pas election as announced last night.
Party president DS Abdul Hadi Awang led the victory which will see the Islamist party reverting back to its conservative roots.

The progressive faction were almost totally wiped out.
Umno people who think this means Pas will be pulling out of Pakatan may want to throw a party in celebration but I think they should pause a bit and THINK.
Are they very sure this latest development in Pas is really good for Umno.
Go to the link above and check out the line-up of Pas new set of leaders.
They are almost all serious looking committed Islamists.
All the jokers are now gone.
Umno people cannot joke around anymore about Mat Sabun, Din Puduraya and other funny Erdogan personalities after this.
Now, try to remember what I was trying to warn about the re-emergence of an overwhelmingly dominant conservative Pas leadership,
Umno, you realize this coming danger from Pas or not?
Now, you check once more the list of new Pas leaders and compare them with that of Umno's.
Then think about what is happening in this country.
Well, who do you think the Malays will now choose to lead them?
Previously, Umno could tell the Malays that the party provides for them a better and dignified existence.
Can it still claim so?
Pas has always promise those who support the party an easier passage to paradise in the afterlife.
That's its main selling point.
Don't you think the Malays, after all the nonsense which currently happen in the country, may be tempted this time to believe in such promise?
Personally, I think they may.
