IPOH: PAS said Friday it will back Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim in the Permatang Pauh by-election but refused to say if it will endorse him to be prime minister if Pakatan Rakyat comes to power.
The remark indicates that Anwar faces big hurdles in his goal to take the top job despite stitching together a formidable alliance to produce spectacular gains during the March 8 general election.
PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang said at the party’s muktamar here they “will give full support” to Anwar during the by-election campaign. [more]
