SHAH ALAM: The Reformist Convention 2019 took off Sunday (Nov 24) morning at snail's pace with only slightly over half the seats filled at 9.30am, the time the event is supposed to start.

The convention, organised by Otai Reformasi, is to discuss many issues – including PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's appointment as the next prime minister.

Otai Reformasi is a group made up of Anwar loyalists, most of whom have been with him since the Reformasi movement in 1998 after his sacking as deputy prime minister.

Anwar is scheduled to deliver an hour-long speech at 11am.

The main focus of the convention is Anwar's appointment as the eighth prime minister.

Although the convention was supposed to start at 9.30am with an opening speech by the event chairman Zam Hamzah, there appears to be a delay.

Other issues to be discussed include protection of the environment.

Speakers include convention chairman and Ijok PKR rep Dr Idris Ahmad, Hulu Kelang Parti Amanah Negara's rep Saari Sungib, DAP's Sungai Pelek assemblyman Ronnie Liu, PKR Youth chief and Johor Baru MP Akmal Nasrullah Mohd Nasir, Kuantan MP Fuziah Salleh, Kapar MP Datuk Abdullah Sani, PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli, Sabah PKR Youth chief Raymond Ahuar and former PKR deputy president Dr Syed Husin Ali.
