KUALA LUMPUR: PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has confirmed that there were attempts to shake up the Pakatan Harapan government by Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia and a faction from PKR.
"Now we are waiting for further information but there were attempts to bring down the Pakatan government involving our former friend Bersatu and a small fraction from PKR who has betrayed us.
"They have met with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong this evening but there is no further announcement," said Anwar when answering a question after delivering a sermon during a religious event at his Bukit Segambut residence on Sunday night (Feb 23).
"The question about a new government... I haven't received the full information yet," he said in the sermon which was broadcast live on the PKR Facebook page.
It is believed that he was alluding to the speculation that Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who is Bersatu chairman, was executing a plan to form a new coalition government with Anwar's rival, PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Azmin Ali's faction, Umno and PAS.
