PKR not free of disloyal members, says Anwar

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): PKR is not spared from having members who have treacherous and corrupt attitudes, says party president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

"We (need to) strengthen the machinery (and) increase understanding. Are we the ‘perfect’ party? No... there are also treacherous leaders, there are those who, when they have a position, start amassing wealth. In Keadilan (PKR), we see that there are also those who are corrupt,” he said.

As such, he called on all members to continue to uphold and defend the idealism of the party's struggle, which rejects any element of corruption, abuse of power and treachery.

"(We) must return to polish the idealism of the party's struggle... reject corruption, arrogance, abuse of power. Do not allow the emergence of leaders, state governments or figures who (will) build factions to stab us in the back like what we faced before," he added.

Anwar, who is also MP for Port Dickson, said this in his policy speech at the PKR 2020 annual national congress, which was held virtually on Sunday (June 20), following the lockdown.

The national congress, which was supposed to take place on June 6, was held today after being ordered to be postponed by the National Security Council (NSC) and the Registrar of Societies (ROS) on June 4.

Anwar's speech, followed by about 2,000 delegates, also touched on the Covid-19 pandemic in the country, saying that only by speeding up the vaccination process would Malaysia get out of the crisis fast. – Bernama
