SALAHUDDIN DIFFERS FROM HUSAM OVER BY-ELECTION CAMPAIGN STRATEGY

KUALA BESUT, July 14 (Bernama) -- PAS vice-president Salahuddin Ayub has a different view on a PAS' campaign strategy of using the issue of what is claimed to be that Terengganu Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Said and Second Education Minister Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh are not on the same track, in the upcoming Kuala Besut state seat by-election.

Salahudddin said exploiting the purported friction between Idris and Ahmad was not PAS' campaign strategy in the by-election.

"PAS will not be using this issue," he told a press conference at the party's office in Kampung Baharu, here, regarding PAS' ceramah speakers' approach of playing up the purported Ahmad-Idris rift.

Salahuddin's statement on this, however, differed from the party's by-election director Datuk Husam Musa's call for Idris' supporters to vote for the PAS candidate so as to balance the political influence of the menteri besar's camp.

Husam was reported to have said that PAS' win in Kuala Besut would indirectly be a victory for Idris, the former Terengganu menteri besar.
