“As far as PAS in Perak is concerned, we will be in Pakatan Rakyat forever and ever," Nizar said.
“There is no way we will pair with them (Umno). We are the Pakatan Rakyat, a composition of PAS, DAP and PKR,” he said in a press conference after chairing the Perak Water Board meeting here on Monday.

"Malaysia is a free country and why must we follow others' instructions," Azizan said when asked to comment on DAP chairman Karpal Singh's statement that the PR review PAS' participation following its action of having discussions with Umno on Malay unity.
"Karpal himself had said that it would be over his dead body if the PR would talk to Umno. PAS has done so. Now it is up to him (to take further action)," Azizan said.
Kelantan MB (The Malaysian Insider; digressing a bit, read what YB jeff ooi said here);
KUALA LUMPUR, July 28 — After rejecting a muzakarah (dialogue) with Umno, Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat surprised everyone over the weekend by asking Umno and Pas to dissolve and pave the way for a united Muslim party.
To prove his seriousness, the Pas spiritual leader will bring up the proposal at the Pas muktamar (annual meeting) in Ipoh next month.
"The muktamar will give me an opportunity to present my case," the Kelantan menteri besar told reporters in Kota Baru yesterday. Nik Aziz has been vehemently opposed to the idea of Pas leaders discussing political matters including cooperation with their Umno counterparts.
Now as I have stated earlier on I do believe that we do need to look at what's going on concerning the "merger" from a bigger perspective, from a wider angle. If you'd make some times tonight to visit Harakah Daily, they are not highlighting any of this. In fact what seems to be the main news in that particular web portal (see above pic) is Umno gagal gugat Pakatan Rakyat - Anwar
The mixed messages sent out are actually clear enough for anyone to decipher. It is whether you can swallow it or otherwise would be the issue, very much depending so on where you're coming from.
