KUALA LUMPUR, May 22 (Bernama) -- PAS has postponed its muktamar (annual
general meeting) scheduled for next month to November to enable the party to
focus on preparations for the 13th general election, said its secretary-general,
Datuk Mustafa Ali.
Instead, he said PAS would hold a rally at the Darul Aman Stadium, Alor Star
on June 1 as it geared up for the general election.
He said the postponement was decided by the PAS Central Committee at a
meeting on May 13.
"We are fully focused on the general election which is expected to be held
soon," he said when contacted.
PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang will brief party''s top leaders at
a closed-door meeting to be held in conjunction with the assembly, he said,
adding that a bai''ah (pledge of political allegiance) would also be held.
In the 2008 general election, PAS won 23 of 66 parliamentary seats it
contested and 83 of 231 state seats.
It retained Kelantan and ousted the Barisan Nasional in Kedah.
