‘Focus on GE14 promises’

GEORGE TOWN: Focus fully on Pakatan Harapan’s efforts to carry out promises made to the people during the 14th General Election (GE14), says PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim (pic)
He voiced his annoyance at media reports constantly focusing on the transition of power between Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and himself.
According to him, there had been no contradiction or conflict between himself and Dr Mahathir over the issue, which is often portrayed otherwise by external parties.
“For me, what is important is that Pakatan Harapan stands firm on maintaining democracy, safeguarding the interests of the people, eliminating corruption and avoiding abuse of power,” he said in a speech at the opening of Wisma Parti Keadilan Rakyat Pulau Pinang in Bayan Baru here yesterday.

He also urged all parties within Pakatan to give Dr Mahathir space and time to restore the country’s economy.

“My stand, and that of PKR, remains firm to give (Dr Mahathir) space to stabilise the country’s economy, and there is no reason for me to dispute his sincerity,” he said.
He also said that he met Dr Mahathir on an almost weekly basis, and there were no contradictions or clashes of opinion between them.
Meanwhile, Anwar denied there were any rifts within Pakatan as portrayed by the media recently.
He said he was puzzled as to where the reports were coming from, as he found no such problems during his meetings with the leadership of several states.
“There will definitely be some differences of opinion within the party, and sometimes they forget that it is democratic and we must allow space for people to give their opinions and criticise, including criticisms towards me.
“I do not deny there are differences (in thought) which must exist in any institution or democratic party, but that does not (mean) having rifts within the party,” he said. — Bernama
