KUALA TERENGGANU, 7 June 2009: Umno Youth hopes that the discussion between Umno and PAS can be continued following the reelection of Nasharudin Mat Isa as the PAS deputy president yesterday.
Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin said Umno Youth maintained an open mind about cooperation with PAS because after the last general election, the question of bilateral discussions was bandied about.
“With Ustaz Nasharudin’s victory, the ‘muzakarah’ or discussion agenda can be continued,” he told reporters after a youth programme organised in collaboration with the Terengganu government and Terengganu Umno last night.
Khairy, who is also the Member of Parliament for Rembau, however, said the discussion might not reach the level of forming a pact or an official cooperation. — Bernama
