KUALA LUMPUR: The transitional Parti Keadilan Rakyat supreme council, a new political party set to emerge from the Parti Keadilan Nasional and Parti Rakyat Malaysia merger, is likely to see some “demotion” of senior party leaders in Parti Keadilan Nasional. 

The first which is likely to take place is the “relegation” of its current deputy president Abdul Rahman Osman, who has been tipped to fill the secretary-general post.  

Current secretary-general of Keadilan, Saari Bahari, is expected to “make way” for Abdul Rahman until the new party conducts its elections sometime this year or as soon as it gets the green light from the Registrar of Societies to hold its first AGM. 

Sources close to both parties said Saari, an elected supreme council member of Keadilan, was expected to play a new role in the new party. 

President of Parti Rakyat Malaysia, Syed Hussein Ali, is expected to be the new party number two – next to Keadilan’s president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, who has been tipped to be the first president of the new party. 

The transitional supreme council will see three vice presidents from Keadilan and two from PRM. 

Mohd Azmin Ali, Tian Chua and Datuk Sheikh Azmi Ahmad are expected to be Keadilan’s choices while Lee Sang and R. Sivarasa, the PRM vice-presidents, are expected to make up the other two.
