The son of PAS leader Hadi is reported in the Malaysian Press as describing Amanah members as betraying those who voted for them.

He was, presumably, referring to those who voted for PAS candidates in the 2013 general election?

Since he was not then asked the obvious follow up question let us pose it here.  As PAS opposed UMNO in that general election and have now decided to support UMNO in the next who are the real betrayers?

Do PAS contend that there are two or more different sorts of political betrayal and that their brand is acceptable while others are not? If so voters would welcome an explanation. If Inche Hadi’s son is not able to furnish it can his father do so?

Or are voters left to conclude that what I say is right and what you do is betrayal?
