Nik Aziz: Karpal's statement was his personal opinion

The PAS spiritual leader says DAP chairman Karpal Singh is alone in his bid to file a suit against the Sultan of Perak in as far as as he is concerned.

Nik Aziz, who is the Kelantan Menteri Besar, said that Karpal's remarks on the issue were his personal opinion and not reflective of Pakatan's stand or action.

"We cannot take his statement into consideration. He is an old man; in fact, many among the young in the DAP are no longer taking him seriously," he told Bernama when met at his resident in Pulau Melaka Saturday night.

Nik Aziz said the statement by Karpal, however, would not affect relations among Pakatan parties.

Asked on the special statement by the Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, expressing regret over the disputes relating to the appointment of the new Perak state government, Nik Aziz said, he had nothing to say about the matter.

"I normally refrain from making comments on any issue relating to the royalty," he said.
