KOTA BARU (Bernama) - PAS spiritual leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat described the Pakatan Rakyat as immature and still in its infancy in handling conflicts and differences of opinions between PAS, PKR and DAP.

Nik Aziz, who is also Kelantan Menteri Besar, said there were bound to be differences in opinion between the three partners because the coalition was still young.

As such, he told reporters it was not proper for those outside the coalition to pressure it excessively.

Nik Aziz said this when asked to comment on Pakatan’s cooperation policy following an internal crisis between the three parties in Selangor that led to the dismissal of Shah Alam MP Khalid Abdul Samad as PAS Deputy Commissioner II.

The Agenda Daily website reported yesterday that Selangor PAS Commissioner Datuk Dr Hassan Mohamed Ali had dismissed his deputy because “Khalid is seen as frequently defending the actions of Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim and would disagree on any protest made by Selangor PAS against the actions of the Mentri Besar”.

Nik Abdul Aziz, however, refused to comment on Dr Hassan’s move to drop Khalid.
