Don’t work with kleptocrats, Anwar urged

PETALING JAYA: A day after PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said he had held talks with Umno, the representatives of five Opposition parties reminded him to reject any cooperation with so-called kleptocrats.

“We need to mobilise efforts and focus on building our strengths as one voice to raise the agenda of the people, ” the representatives of five parties said in a joint statement.

The statement was signed by Parti Amanah Negara deputy president Datuk Salahuddin Ayub, Parti Warisan Sabah youth chief Datuk Mohd Azis Jamman, DAP political education director Liew Chin Tong, Malaysian United Democratic Alliance founder Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman and Parti Sarawak Bersatu member Baru Bian.

They said the Opposition bloc had to work together on an agenda to heal Malaysia, claiming that the Perikatan Nasional government had failed to solve economic, health and political crises during its one-year rule.

Anwar had said on Tuesday that talks between PKR and Umno leaders had taken place, although no agreement or any formal understanding had been made yet.
