PETALING JAYA: Nurul Izzah Anwar is not taking a step back from politics and will continue playing an important role in Parliament and the country’s political scene, says former PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli.

This follows after Nurul Izzah resigned as vice-president of PKR and relinquished her appointment as the chair of Penang PKR.  

Describing Nurul Izzah as a reformist and a fighter, he said she is only stepping down from key positions in the party and will remain in the idealism and struggle in the chaotic political arena.  

Rafizi added that holding a senior position in the party is just one of the ways to contribute.  

“Nurul Izzah had and will prove that the reformasi idealism is more important than posts, ranks or power.  

“Her decision today although shocking, is a message that we should learn from.  

“I hope she can reconsider her decision. I feel she can defend the idealism with her position in the PKR leadership,” he said in a statement on Monday (Dec 17).  

Rafizi said he also respected Nurul Izzah’s decision and will support every decision she makes because he believed that it comes from her desire to play a more effective role.  

He called on PKR members to accept her decision by giving her their full support and encouragement.
