90% of PKR division chiefs express support for Anwar

PETALING JAYA: A total of 197 PKR division chiefs have expressed their support for Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s leadership.

The group, comprising about 90% of the party’s 219 divisions, said they felt compelled to state their undivided support for the party president.

The division chiefs said they wanted Anwar to drive and lead the party, as well as to serve as the country’s next prime minister.

“This support shows that PKR is still solid and united under Anwar’s leadership.

“At the same time, the move will also dispel the perception that the party is split and facing turmoil.

“We are committed to supporting our party president as the eighth prime minister as agreed upon by the leadership of Pakatan Harapan,” the statement read.

A recent viral sex video scandal that implicated deputy president Datuk Seri Azmin Ali, resulted in an internal rift between supporters of Anwar and the Economic Affairs Minister.

The statement yesterday included a chart, containing a breakdown on the number of division chiefs in each state, who made up the 197 but their names and divisions were not mentioned.

The chart also showed that of the remaining 22 PKR division chiefs, six of them are from Sarawak.

Others are from Sabah (four); Selangor and Kelantan (three each); Perak (two); while Johor, Pahang, Penang, and the Federal Territories of Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya had one each.
