PKR approves motion to extend office-bearers till next party election no later than May 2023

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): All office-bearers in the PKR Central Leadership Council (MPP) and branch committees for the term 2018-2021 will remain in office until the next party elections, says Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail.

The party secretary-general said this was one of the two motions approved at the PKR 2020 Annual National Congress Sunday (June 20).

Another motion approved by the delegates was that the party elections, scheduled to be held in November this year, be postponed to a date to be set by the MPP, not later than May 2023.

Saifuddin Nasution, who tabled the MPP’s motion, said that the party’s constitution, Article 47.1, stipulates that the MPP could postpone party elections for up to 18 months.

"Hence, the MPP, on Feb 28, decided to postpone the 2021 party election until a date to be decided later, ” he said.

He also explained that the term of office is only for three years, from November 2018 until November this year.

The two motions were then passed unanimously by the delegates.

About 2, 000 delegates participated in the congress, virtually through the Zoom application, starting at 8am Sunday. - Bernama
