Anwar says ‘minor’ infighting will not hamper PKR fight for Rantau


Modified 29 Mar 2019, 4:18 am

The differences in opinion within PKR is only a small issue and does not affect the campaign for the Rantau State Assembly seat by-election.

PKR president Anwar Ibrahim said what was important now was that the focus should be on the Rantau by-election, including gaining victory for Pakatan Harapan.

“(It’s) A small matter, we focus on the election, differences of opinion are allowed... the difference of opinion is small but now we have to focus on the Rantau by-election and economy. I am consistent on this.

“Everyone has agreed to campaign and there is no need to fight,” he said after meeting the party machinery for the Rantau by-election yesterday.

Also present were state Harapan chairperson Aminuddin Harun, who is also Negeri Sembilan menteri besar, and PKR vice-president Shamsul Iskandar Mohd Akin.

On March 22, Nurul Izzah Anwar resigned from the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) following a disagreement over the leadership of PAC.

The Rantau by-election was called after the Federal Court on Feb 18 dismissed the appeal of former Negeri Sembilan menteri besar Mohamad Hasan to set aside the decision of the Seremban Special Election Court which declared his victory in Rantau in the 14th general election as null and void.
