KUALA LUMPUR, July 16 — PAS and Umno’s meeting tonight to discuss formalising the two Opposition parties’ cooperation has been postponed, Datuk Takuyiddin Hassan said.

The PAS secretary-general said the discussion was pushed back in order for both parties’ lawmakers to attend Parliament that is scheduled to vote on constitutional amendments to lower the voting age.

“We will have it done as soon as possible.

“The contents has not been finalised yet, when it is completed, we will inform. But it is not set yet, maybe there are some changes,” he told reporters when met by reporters at the Parliament lobby here today.

Takiyuddin, however, had not confirmed when the rescheduled date would be set.

Umno and PAS had scheduled to hold a steering committee meeting tonight between its leaders to discuss the findings of the technical committee chaired by the vice-presidents of both sides.

The political cooperation charter between Umno and PAS was likely to have been finalised today after the leadership of the two Malay-Muslim parties have finetune on how their political cooperation would be implemented in the future.
