Bernama  |  Published:  |  Modified:

The PKR top leadership has yet to hold talks about the parliamentary seat that needs to be vacated to make way for Anwar Ibrahim to contest, PKR Wanita chief Zuraida Kamaruddin said.

Zuraida, who is also the housing and local government minister, said she knew about the seat to be vacated through the media, but stressed that there have been no discussions in the party over the matter.

"I have read the news about this, but there has been no discussion at the party's top leadership level," she said to reporters at the wedding reception of her son in Ampang today.

Also present were Selangor Menteri Besar Amirudin Shari, Economic Affairs Minister Mohamed Azmin Ali and Federal Territories Minister Khalid Abdul Samad.  

Yesterday, Deputy Prime Minister Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail confirmed that a parliamentary seat would be vacated to give way for Anwar to contest. 

Anwar had recently won the PKR presidency uncontested.

She added, however, that she could not make any announcement as to when and where the seat would be vacated for Anwar.
