KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 23 (Bernama) -- Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim Tuesday met up with PAS leaders in an effort to convince them that PAS members of parliament (MPs) would not be marginalised should the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) form the next federal government.

Parti Keadilan Rakyat information chief Tian Chua said Anwar, who is also PKR advisor, wanted to impress upon PAS leaders, especially its spiritual leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat and party president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang that Muslim MPs would not be sidelined if the PR gains power.

"We have to do this before proceeding to the next course of action," he told Bernama without revealing what the next course of action would be.

Last week, Anwar issued a Sept 23 deadline to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to call for an emergency Parliament session in an attempt to move a motion of no-confidence against the government, claiming that he had 31 Barisan Nasional (BN) MPs in the opposition's fold. - BERNAMA
