PAS has expressed confidence about wresting Perlis away from Barisan Nasional (BN) at the coming polls, following talk of a major faction war in the state chapter of the coalition’s mainstay Umno.

In an interview with Harakah Daily here, Perlis PAS commissioner Hashim Jasin said the state’s former mentri besar Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim had recently admitted to him that Perlis Umno was now in shambles and split into four factions.

The four groups are said to be ledby Shahidan, another by Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Isa Sabu, another by Pauh assemblyman (brother to the Raja of Perlis, Datuk Seri Syed Razlan Putra Jamalullail) and one by former minister Datuk Azmi Khalid.
