PETALING JAYA: There will be no Pakatan Harapan meeting at the PKR headquarters on Tuesday (June 16) on the coalition's choice of prime ministerial candidate, but PKR strategic communications director Fahmi Fadzil (pic) says a statement will be issued later in the day.

"The official statement of the top leadership will be issued late this evening or much later today," he said in a statement on Tuesday (June 16).

The much anticipated meeting among top Pakatan leaders and its allies was expected to take place to make a final decision on who — Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim or Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad — will be their choice of candidate for the Prime Minister post.

Supporters from both camps have expressed hope on social media via hashtag #DemiMalaysia that the two leaders will put aside all their differences and work together for the country.

Top Pakatan Plus leaders held a meeting on Tuesday (June 9) and said it had yielded "positive developments".

Pakatan Plus is an informal term referring to the Pakatan coalition after Bersatu and several PKR leaders left.

It comprises Opposition parties, namely Pakatan parties, several ex-Bersatu leaders and Parti Warisan Sabah.
