REMBAU (March 28): The differences of opinion within PKR is only a small issue and does not affect the campaign for the Rantau State Assembly seat by-election.
PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said what was important now was that focus should be on the Rantau by-election, including gaining victory for Pakatan Harapan (PH).
“(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, there is no need to fight,” he said after meeting the party machinery for the Rantau by-election here today.
Also present were state PH chairman who is also Negeri Sembilan Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Aminuddin Harun and PKR vice-president Datuk Seri Shamsul Iskandar Mohd Akin.
On March 22, Nurul Izzah Anwar resigned from the Public Accounts Committee following a disagreement over the PAC’s leadership.
The Rantau State seat by-election is being held after the Federal Court on Feb 18 dismissed the appeal of former Negeri Sembilan Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan to set aside the decision of the Seremban Special Election Court which declared his victory in Rantau in the 14th General Election null and void.
