PKR, DAP and Amanah meet for coalition-forming talks

SUBANG: PKR, DAP and newly formed Parti Amanah Negara members arrived at the Empire Hotel here for a closed meeting on Tuesday morning to discuss the future of the opposition parties.

It would be the first meeting of the three parties since PAS and DAP severed ties and the formation of PAS splinter group Amanah.

The only PAS member seen at the event was Pokok Sena MP Datuk Mahfuz Omar who was only there to observe.

PAS had earlier announced that it will not be joining the closed door meeting as Pakatan Rakyat was still alive and there was no need for Pakatan Rakyat 2.0.

PKR president Datuk Seri Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, DAP leader Lim Kit Siang, Amanah chairman and deputy chairman Mohammad Sabu and Salahuddin Ayub, as well as other opposition members were present at the meeting.

Other who were present were Selangor Mentri Besar and PKR deputy president Azmin Ali, PKR vice president Nurul Izzah Anwar and Amanah vice-chairman Datuk Dr Mujahid Yusof Rawa.

Independent observers were also present at the event, among whom were Bersih chairman Maria Chin Abdullah and Akedemi Belia's Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah.

Also seen was National Laureate A Samad Said, who recently joined DAP.
