Filepic: Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi AwangFilepic: Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi AwangBESUT: PAS menegaskan walaupun mereka menggunakan strategi ‘16:16’ dalam Pilihan Raya Kecil (PRK) Kuala Besut, jawatan Menteri Besar Terengganu tetap akan diberikan kepada Barisan Nasional (BN).

Presiden PAS, Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang berkata, pihaknya hanya mahu menjadi sebagai pengimbang dan penyemak untuk memastikan setiap keputusan yang dibuat mengutamakan kebajikan rakyat.

"(Umno) beri kita 16 kerusi, mereka 16, biar seimbang. Biar dia jadi MB, kita nak 16 kerusi, apa kaedahnya? Kita boleh tegur dia (Umno) ... benda tidak molek kita boleh bangkang, benda betul kita sokong, baru kita ada kekuatan betulkan kerajaan BN," kata Abdul Hadi.

Sekiranya PAS berjaya memenangi PRK Kuala Besut, agihan kerusi akan menjadi 16:16 yang akan menyebabkan ‘DUN tergantung’ sekaligus mewujudkan satu dimensi baru politik negeri yang terletak di pantai timur itu.

Justeru itu, Abdul Hadi meminta supaya pengundi Kuala Besut belajar daripada masyarakat di bandar yang lebih celik internet dimana majoriti pengundinya menolak BN dan menyokong Pakatan Rakyat.

"Orang Kuala Besut belajar daripada mereka yang terpelajar...mereka yang celik internet tolak BN, belajar daripada mereka," katanya.

"Di Terengganu, semua kawasan bandar kita menang, Kuala Terengganu, Dungun, semua kita menang...tapi kawasan Kuala Besut, kita kalah...kita tak salahkan orang Kuala Besut, masing-masing sibuk dengan urusan ke laut, tidak sempat buka internet.

"Kita berjaya menerangkan melalui media baru. Orang celik internet tidak sokong Umno," kata beliau dalam ceramah ketika berkempen sempena Pilihan Raya Kecil (PRK) Kuala Besut di sini, malam tadi.

PRK DUN Kuala Besut menyaksikan pertembungan satu lawan satu antara calon BN, Tengku Zaihan Che Ku Abd Rahman dan wakil PAS, Endut @ Azlan Yusof.

Pada pilihan raya kecil ini PAS menggunakan strategi kempen dengan mengetengahkan sasaran kerusi 16:16 iaitu bagi menyamakan jumlah kerusi BN dan pembangkang di DUN Terengganu.

DUN Terengganu mempunyai 32 kerusi di mana 17 daripadanya dikuasai oleh BN manakala pembangkang hanya mempunyai 15 kerusi (PAS 14, PKR satu).
