Terengganu PAS said it would welcome former leaders or members back to its fold, months after an MP quit the party following his sacking from the Syura Council.
Its secretary, Wan Sukairi Wan Abdullah, said the party had never closed the door on the return of former members, including Kuala Nerus MP Khairuddin Aman Razali.
“We are ready to accept anyone who wishes to be with the party, including those who left and wish to return. The door is always open,” he told FMT.
Khairuddin quit PAS in March, saying he had no choice but to leave in hopes of compelling party leaders to manage it properly.
The two-term MP had been sacked as the secretary of the Syura Council in February for disciplinary reasons and had earlier been expelled from its central committee in January.
Asked if any party leaders had attempted to persuade the former plantation industries and commodities minister to return, Wan Sukairi said no such efforts had been made, adding that Khairuddin was capable of deciding for himself.
He said Khairuddin’s resignation had no impact on the party as members were taught to obey its top leadership and to respect decisions made by them.
After his resignation in March, Khairuddin said he had not ruled out returning to PAS once he was done reprimanding the party. He said he would still support the party in terms of its direction and policies.
