Anwar ‘casually’ meets Rafizi to discuss strengthening PKR

PKR president Anwar Ibrahim has met with Rafizi Ramli yesterday along with Permatang Pauh MP Nurul Izzah Anwar.

This comes as Rafizi is on track to be elected as the deputy president, based on the unofficial party polls’ results announced by the PKR central election committee (JPP) in late May.

“(We) spoke casually and also discussed the agenda to strengthen PKR,” Anwar said in a short posting on his Instagram today.

Anwar had previously said he would only issue a statement on the results of the party election once the JPP formally finalises the results.

However, he said the “spirit of change” in the party election was a positive development for the party.

“I have been advised not to make any statement that would offend the election, but I feel that the election and the spirit of change is something positive for the party,” he had said.

Unofficial results

According to unofficial results released at the end of May, Rafizi won the deputy president race against PKR secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution Ismail.

In the vice-presidential race, of which four elected positions are available, the projected winners are Selangor Menteri Besar Amirudin Shari, Tanjung Malim MP Chang Lih Kang, Setiawangsa MP Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad, and Negeri Sembilan Menteri Besar Aminuddin Harun.

Amirudin is aligned with Saifuddin while Nik Nazmi, Chang and Aminuddin are aligned with Rafizi.

PKR Youth chief Adam Adli Abdul Halim

Meanwhile, the top post for PKR Youth was won by Adam Adli Abdul Halim, who is aligned with Saifuddin, while the PKR Women saw mixed results where Rodziah Ismail (Rafizi’s team) won the chief post while its number two position was won by Juwairiya Zulkifli (Saifuddin’s team).

The official results will be formalised at PKR’s annual national congress, which had been postponed from the end of June to July 15 to 17.

Saifuddin said the postponement was to enable the JPP to resolve several matters raised related to the party election. - Mkini
