The recent concluded PAS "Muktamar" (Annual General Assembly) in Kuala Lumpur had shown the new mindset of PAS members to pursue the real challenge to the ruling party, Barisan Nasional (particularly UMNO) in order to win majority votes in the coming general election. The Assembly chose Mohamad Sabu, popularly known as Mat Sabu to be the Deputy President and other professionals in their line up, including Salahuddin Ayub, Husam Musa and Mahfuz Omar as Vice Presidents proved that PAS is gearing itself to wrestle power in Putrajaya. The combination of ulamaks (religious scholars) and professionals in PAS ruling elite showed that the cooperation with Pakatan Rakyat is strengtened in order for the Opposition to wrestle control of forming a new government. The President, Ustaz Hadi Awang touched on a responsible and caring government which contribute to providing healthy living, basic necessities, basic infrastructure, food, clothing, housing, education and higher standard of living among all Malaysians, irrespective of race, culture and religion.
Ustaz Hadi Awang said that if the Pakatan Rakyat pact is given the mandate to govern the country, it will safeguard democracy and restore the integrity of the country's institutions, creating accountability and good governance. Further, it will create healthy competitiveness through increased productivity and innovation. PAS and Pakatan Rakyat will never allow their government to enslave the people for the sake of development as being done by the present Barisan Nasional government.
PAS and Pakatan Rakyat will move to reform agendas by bringing about a paradigm shift in the country's administration. There will be a freedom of expressions by abolishing the draconian Acts (such as ISA - Internal Security Act, etc). Under the responsible and caring government, there will be kindness to all humans, animals, and the environment. This concept is lacking in the ruling government of Barisan Nasional. So the coming general election will be a political super tsunami in Malaysia with a new government installed by the people.
