TUMPAT: PAS says it is ready for any eventuality in the 15th General Election (GE15) amid talk that a new political alliance is aiming to oust the state government led by the Islamist party.Kelantan PAS commissioner Datuk Ahmad Yaakob said new political outfits were nothing new, adding that such developments would not disrupt the party’s GE15 preparations.

“Any party can do anything allowed by the Constitution.

“In our case, we follow the decisions taken by the party central leadership,” Bernama quoted Ahmad Yaakob, who is also Kelantan Mentri Besar, as saying at his Aidilfitri open house in Kampung Alor Pasir here yesterday.

Reports of a new state-based political alliance named Angkatan Amanah Merdeka Rakyat Kelantan, formed with the aim of ousting the PAS government in Kelantan, have surfaced recently.

Umno’s veteran Gua Musang MP Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah was reported to be spearheading the entity.

Separately, Ahmad said although Aidilfitri had fallen a day earlier than expected, the celebration was still a joyous one.

He said the sighting of the new crescent moon was the method used to determine when Hari Raya should be celebrated.

On the retraction of an earlier decision to declare cuti peristiwa (occasional holiday) for the state civil service, Ahmad said it was because the state government was of the opinion that the three public holidays given were enough.
