  1. Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party

    The Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party, commonly known as PAS, is an Islamist political party in Malaysia. Its membership of approximately one million makes it the largest party outside Malaysia's ruling Barisan Nasional coalition. It has contested and won parliamentary seats in each of the country's 13 general elections. The party was founded in 1951 by Muslim clerics in the United Malays National Organisation. In the party's early decades, it fused Islamist and Malay nationalist ideologies and entrenched itself as one of the country's strongest opposition parties. From 1974 to 1978, PAS joined the governing Barisan Nasional coalition, but has otherwise been in opposition at the federal level for the entirety of its history. The 1980s saw the party taken over by a group of Muslim clerics, who shifted the party's ideology away from Malay nationalism towards a puritanical brand of Islamism. After poor electoral performances, the party moderated in the 1990s, increasing its membership and electoral support. PAS's electoral base is in Malaysia's rural and conservative north.
