197 out of 212 PKR division chiefs pledge support for Anwar to become PM8

(The Star) – PKR division chiefs have expressed their support to Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as the party president and as the country’s next Prime Minister, amid reports of an internal crisis in the party.

A joint statement issued by 197 PKR division chiefs nationwide said they felt compelled to express their solid support to Anwar to drive and lead the party.

The party has 219 division chiefs nationwide.

“This support directly proves that Keadilan (PKR) is still solid and united under Anwar’s leadership, and at the same time dispels the perception that the party is facing turmoil and is split.

“We are committed to supporting Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to lead the country as the eighth Prime Minister as has been agreed by the leadership of Pakatan Harapan before the 14th General Election, ” the statement read.

A viral sex video controversy that allegedly implicated PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Azmin Ali marked the latest in an internal rift between supporters of Azmin and Anwar.
