PAS to move its HQ to KL city centre

PAS is moving its party headquarters from the suburb of Gombak to the city centre by the middle of this year to be more accessible to the public.

The new headquarters will be more strategically located and will give the opposition party a more sophisticated look, PAS vice-president Datuk Husam Musa said.

"Our headquarters in Taman Melewar, Gombak, is a bit out of town. We want to be in the mainstream now so that communication with the public would be easier and we are more approachable," he said.

Husam did not want to disclose yet the exact location of the building and denied rumours that it would be located in the Bukit Bintang area in Kuala Lumpur.

"When the time is right, of course we will announce it to the Press. Why would we keep it a secret? We would be proud to say we are moving to a prime area in Kuala Lumpur," he told theSun.

PAS secretary-general Datuk Kamaruddin Jaafar said the plan to move the headquarters to the city centre was progressing positively.

"We have been planning for this since several years back," he said.

He added the existing headquarters in Taman Melewar, Gombak would be retained as the party's activity and training centre.

Party sources said the new headquarters could be located somewhere near Jalan Raja Laut, and might start operations this month in a building to be "sponsored" by a PAS sympathiser. (Malaysia Today)
