It's unprecedented. A defiant Selangor PAS chief refusing to give in while his party colleagues are telling him to toe the line over the Select Committee for Competency, Accountability and Transparency. Hasan Ali is pissed off with Selcat, saying the panel should be revamped and that the grilling of civil servants has demoralised the staff.
But PAS' Shah Alam MP Khalid Samad has taken a shot at Hasan, saying he should play his role as a member of the Selangor state team. In short, he's not a team player. PAS vice president Mahfuz Omar wants Hasan to understand the rules and principles. To end it all, DAP secretary general Lim Guan Eng said Hasan did not know the extent of his powers and nature of his duties. Translated - don't go overboard, know your station in life.
All this sniping has given rise to a fresh round of speculation that things are not that cozy in the Selangor state government. The internal rivalry seems to keep cropping up. There is already talk of a crossover by one or two Pakatan Rakyat assemblymen after Hari Raya. Port Klang state assemblyman Badrul Hisham, for example, has stayed away from all PR and state government functions. The word is that he would make his stand known after the Hari Raya holidays.
The PR state government's biggest enemy is within, as newly recruited PR leader Zaid Ibrahim rightly put it in his blog. He asked what was the point of PAS promising in its manifesto to become a transparent government if the early genuine effort of Selcat had been opposed and challenged by the party, the Malaysian Mirror reported.

That sob Hassan Ali is the biggest traitor. We all know he is inside UMNO's hands already. We ask him to please quit PAS and go to UMNO if that is his comfort zone. Provided UMNO really wants him. He is just a pawn to them. Like Tun MM pointed out, this man has got no morals.
Ah San Ah Lee is now a puppet of UMNO. UMNO promised to make him MB if he submit himself to UMNO. And with that carrot Ah San Ah Lee is drooling uncontrollably. He is mad for power. He is deliberately wrecking Pakatan, with the UMNO team as his mentor and mastermind.
Remember the Khir Toyo broom incident??? The Selcat does need some changes in its inquiry.. if not the PR government will recieve the same fate as Khir 'broom' Toyo government....
