No plot in PKR to deny Anwar premiership - Wan Azizah

Bernama  |  Published:  |  Modified:

Deputy prime minister and PKR president Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail reiterated today that there was no plot in the party to prevent party president-elect Anwar Ibrahim from becoming the next prime minister.

She also dismissed the possibility of there being factions in the party.

"Hatching plots? None. It's nonsense," she said when asked whether she was aware of any plot to frustrate Anwar’s attempt to become the eighth prime minister after Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Wan Azizah was asked the question after she had performed the Aidiladha prayers at Surau Al-Falah Taman Cempaka in Pandan near here.

Last Monday, Sungai Siput MP S Kesavan, who is contesting one of the posts of vice-president in the PKR elections, questioned the loyalty towards Anwar of PKR deputy president and Economic Affairs Minister Mohamed Azmin Ali.

Kesavan had said he was not convinced that Azmin, who is defending the post of deputy president in the elections, really wanted Anwar to be the next prime minister as he (Azmin) had allegedly not stated his support for Anwar.

Wan Azizah, who is the MP for Pandan, urged all Malaysians to come together to help the government to continue developing the country.

"We have to make this a successful government after 61 years. I am asking all Malaysians to come together to make the country move in the right direction," she said.
