Senior PKR leader Zaid Ibrahim’s six months leave to focus on his task in cobbling together a common policy platform for the opposition Pakatan Rakyat has been welcomed by opposition politicians in Sabah and Sarawak.
PKR leaders in Malaysian Borneo note that Zaid will be using his leave to gather input for the Common Policy Framework (CPF) for Pakatan component parties, which also includes DAP and PAS.
Zaid’s portfolio in PKR, which he joined four months ago after leaving Umno, is to work on dispute resolution among others. Few of the party leaders in Sabah and Sarawak see Zaid going anywhere after his six months leave is over.
Zaid is locked in a squabble with PKR vice-president Azmin Ali. There have been moves by Sabah PKR leaders to oust Azmin as the state party chief.
