In a tit-for-tat rebut opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim said Pakatan Rakyat would take up Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak’s national reconciliation offer if the latter admits that there is racism, electoral fraud and corruption in the country.

Earlier this week Najib said for the nation to reconcile, the opposition must accept the 13th General Election results and stop organising rallies.

Responding to Najib, Anwar said he is firm in opposing electoral fraud, corruption and racism.

“If Najib dares to accept the fact that these three things exist in the country, then I will say yes to national reconciliation,” he told some 600 attendees at a Pakatan’s fundraising dinner here last night.

Earlier in his speech Anwar said he is proud of Malaysians because despite the alleged manipulations, media bias and limited resources, 52% of the Malaysians still voted for them.

“Can u think of any other authoritarian or semi-authoritarian regime where we achieve such an outstanding results. Malaysia created history in 2013,” he said to thunderous applause.

Meanwhile, another speaker PKR strategic director Rafizi Ramli also vetoed the Najib-style reconciliation.

Rafizi said he would never accept the offer unless there is a change of electoral system.
