KUALA LUMPUR — March 12, 2020: PKR has decided to disavow public statements from Pakatan Harapan leaders that do not come directly from the coalition, as an immediate response to recent statements by the coalition’s former chairman Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad.
The PKR political bureau met and resolved yesterday that the Pakatan leadership including which encompasses PKR, Amanah and DAP must meet to discuss the coalition’s position.
“Any view other than this is not representative of Pakatan and PKR,” said PKR organising secretary Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad in a statement.
In an interview with the Sinar Harian daily recently Mahathir commented on several issues, including his belief that PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was not popular among the Malays due to his liberal leanings.
He was also of the view that Anwar was a danger to the country, next only to former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
