PETALING JAYA: The police are currently recording a statement from Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim over a controversial banner in Johor.

The banner depicted photographs of PKR supreme council member Chua Jui Meng and the Sultan of Johor. It said that Chua would be the next menteri besar of the southern state.

Umno Youth members lodged a report after denouncing the banner as seditious.

Chua claimed to be in the dark about the banner, and had accused Umno of attempting to rile up the Malays against him.

However, some PKR officials alleged that it could be the work of the former MCA leader’s rivals in PKR.
