Johor polls: Not a problem for PH parties to use different logos, says Anwar

SEREMBAN: There is no issue of Pakatan Harapan allies using different logos in the coming Johor state polls as their policies and manifesto are the same, says Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Anwar, who is also Pakatan chairman said, this was also not the first time PKR, DAP and Parti Amanah Negara would be using different logos.

"What is important is that the leaders in Pakatan have agreed to this.

"This will not in any way jeopardise relations between us as our policies and manifesto are the same," he told reporters after attending a townhall session organised by Persatuan Kebangsaan Pelajar Islam Malaysia.

PKR would use its own logo in the state election while DAP and Amanah would go with the Pakatan logo.

He said some people were deliberately making an issue out of this and claiming that there was a rift in Pakatan.

"In the 2013 general election when we were known as Pakatan Rakyat, we had used our own logos but in 2018, we used Keadilan's.

"However, in the Sabah election, Keadilan used our own logo while DAP decided to use Warisan's and again, there were no problems," he said.

The Pakatan allies had used the Pakatan logo in the Melaka polls but used their respective ones in the Sarawak election.

Anwar said PKR also decided to use its own logo as it was easier for the rural community to recognise it.

"I don't find anything strange about this.

"What is more important is that we should fight corruption, power abuse and racist thoughts," he said.

Separately, Anwar said PKR would never abandon its ally DAP just to form ties with other political parties.

He said both parties have been the mainstay of Pakatan Harapan and Pakatan Rakyat previously and have also proven their loyalty to one another.

"There is talk that there are others who are prepared to work with PKR provided we reject DAP.

"We (PKR) cannot accept that because we have been together from the start and have also proven our loyalty to one another," he said.

However, Anwar said although PKR would remain together with the DAP, this did not mean the latter was not allowed to talk to other parties.

"Similarly, PKR can also talk to others who want to cooperate with us. But it will be very hard to accept a condition that we will have to stop working with DAP," he said.

He also said there have been no talks so far between Pakatan and Perikatan Nasional on a possible cooperation in the coming Johor polls.
