Stand by Anwar, says Sabah PKR chief

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah PKR chief Datuk Christina Liew today called on the party’s leaders not to wantonly issue statements on the crisis facing the party but instead stand by the president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to resolve it.

Christina, who is also Sabah Deputy Chief Minister, in a statement here today, said now that the party is in power in the country along with its coalition partners in Pakatan Harapan, all focus should be on pursuing the New Malaysia reform agenda.

She said Sabah PKR stood solidly behind Anwar in his efforts to bring back party solidarity and furthermore the people were counting on Pakatan Harapan and PKR to focus on development issues and economic growth and not “internal bickering”.

There is a perception that an all-out warfare has broken out between Anwar and PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali, who is also Economic Affairs Minister.

A sex video went viral recently which allegedly implicated Mohamed Azmin, However, he has denied that it is him in the video and that it is the work of certain people who are out to destroy his political career. – Bernama
