KOTA BHARU: PAS secretary-general Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan said his party would discuss with other Perikatan Nasional component parties whether to accept prime minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s proposal for the coalition to join the “unity government.”

Takiyuddin said in a statement today that he appreciated the new prime minister’s proposal to PN, and said his party would discuss this with other PN component parties soon.

PAS also congratulated Anwar for becoming the 10th prime minister of Malaysia, and Takiyuddin believed Anwar would perform his duties responsibly and fairly.
