PAS will not direct its members and supporters to take part in Bersih 4.0 in the federal capital.

PAS secretary-general Datuk Takiyuddin Hassan, in a statement Monday, said the date of the gathering, which was only a day earlier than the National Day celebration, was deemed unsuitable.

He said PAS would only send representatives to the event.

The Kota Bharu Member of Parliament also reminded that public order and national stability must be protected, and this was the duty of all.
