PETALING JAYA: PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has agreed with the Prime Minister's stance not to have changes in both the Deputy Prime Minister's post and Cabinet.

"In the meeting (with Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad), I agreed with his stance to give attention to nation-building programmes as well as not making changes in the DPM post and Cabinet," Anwar said in a Facebook post Thursday (June 20).

The PKR president said the short meeting was held in Putrajaya before Dr Mahathir's trip to Bangkok.

The issue of the sex video controversy, involving Santubong PKR Youth chief Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz and, allegedly, Economic Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Azmin Ali, was also brought up.

"I again reiterated that Keadilan (PKR) rejects this culture of dirty politics, as well as shared my sympathies with Azmin Ali and his family.

"Discussing it further, I stressed that there exists an element of politics involved in this issue and it was unreasonable to accuse anyone of spreading it without proof," he said.

Previously, Haziq had named Azmin in the sex video romp.

Azmin subsequently denied the allegations, calling it slander and a “nefarious plot” to end his political career.
