Anwar has lost clout: PKR founder

(Bernama) — One of the founders of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), Ng Lum Yon, said it was not surprising if the opposition pact had offered Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah to be opposition leader.

Ng said the opposition pact was now seen as sidelining current Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim who had lost influence in the pact.

“We see that Anwar is no longer relevant to continue to be (PKR) leader as he has a lot of personal problems….in and out of court, plus the sex video case believed to involve him.

“Besides, the many promises made by Anwar have not been fulfilled. So, I am not surprised if the opposition pact is looking for an alternative leader,” he said when contacted by Bernama, here, today.

Ng quit PKR in January this year as he was disappointed with the leadership.

He felt the party was no longer fighting for the people’s interest but only to fulfil Anwar’s wants.
