Anwar and Azmin shake hands as Dr Wan Azizah and the other exco members look on

PETALING JAYA: With the new mentri besar having been installed following months of crisis, PKR leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim emphasised on Friday that PKR was united in its support for Azmin Ali to helm the state's top job.

At a press conference after a meeting of the new PKR executive councillors and party president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, Anwar said Dr Wan Azizah even bought a cake for Azmin as a show of her support.

“It’s very rare that a party president buys a cake for the new Mentri Besar,” Anwar quipped at the party headquarters in Merchant Square.

When asked to comment on the Selangor Sultan's criticism of PKR over the removal of Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim as mentri besar, Anwar said: "I do not want to comment on this out of respect for the presence of the Mentri Besar who is here with me."

Present were newly-appointed exco members Amirudin Shari (Batu Caves), Daroyah Alwi (Sementa), Elizabeth Wong (Bukit Lanjan) and Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad (Seri Setia).

Anwar said he would ask the new administration to review pay hikes for the state’s top office bearers which was approved last year.

He said PKR supported the move by Azmin to re-examine the Kinrara-Damansara Expressway (Kidex) proposal, the state’s water-supply restructuring agreement, and several land approvals.
