Politically, Kelantan is unique compared toother statesin Malaysia. Manifestations of the doctrine of competition between UMNOand PAS occurred in this last fortress of the Malay states (the last bastions of Malayness). Different political doctrines has caused relations between PAS-led Kelantan State Government and Federal Government,the UMNO-led Alliance,is always hot. But the doctrine of competition began to simmer down, upon the occurrence of the May 13, 1969 event, which allows both partiesto come up with a government known as the PAS-Alliance Coalition Government (1973-1974) and laterto be replaced by the Barisan Nasional (National Front) Governmentin 1974. PAS positionin the National Frontonly lasted for threeand a half years, when a political turn oil brewed up and has caused the party'sexpulsion.The expulsionof PAS from the National Front has caused the defeat of PAS to lose Kelantan State Legislative Assembly in the 1978 General Election. This provides the opportunity tothe UMNO-led Barisan Nasionalto rule Kelantan for 12 years and engage itself in extensive political strategies to defend its position from being constantly attacks by the PAS opposition quarters. However, due to some internal and external problems in the UMNO, PAS has won back the administration of the state of Kelantan by winning State Legislative Assemblyin the 1990 general election.
