New party in January, says Zaid

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 26 — Former Federal Territory Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) chief Datuk Zaid Ibrahim today announced that he will be forming a new party in January next year.

Speaking at press conference at his residence here, he said he would also be announcing the details on the party the same month.

However, in an apparent dig at this previous party, he said the new party would certainly not have “Keadilan” (Justice) in its name or was it Parti Angkatan Keadilan Islam Malaysia (Akim)as had been speculated in some blogs.

Asked how confident he was about the new party garnering support from the people, Zaid (picture) said: “I wish to assure our (proponents of the party’s) friends that we will have a new party in the country...and I wish to give an assurance that it will not be a fledgling party, we will become big and strong.”

On November 8, Zaid, who was contesting PKR’s polls for the deputy president’s post for the 2010-2012 term, quit the party citing the polls lacked transparency.

Prior to joining PKR, the former Umno member had been a Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department when Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi (then Datuk Seri) was prime minister. — Bernama
