KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 6 2018 : Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail said she will not relinquish her position in the cabinet as well as the Member of Parliament for Pandan, to make way for her husband Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
She emphasised that she would retain all positions that she was holding although Anwar had won without contest the post of president of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR).
“Certainly not (relinquish position). InsyaAllah (I will retain all posts including as the Member of Parliament for Pandan),” she said when met by reporters at the Parliament lobby today.
However, Dr Wan Azizah who is also PKR president, said the decision whether Anwar would contest a Parliamentary seat would be determined later.
Yesterday, Anwar unofficially won uncontested the position of PKR president after no nomination form was received from any other individual to challenge him at the 2018 PKR election. – Bernama
