PKR denies links to Liberal International

PKR information chief Fahmi Fadzil says the party is not and has never been a member of the organisation which supports Israel.

(FMT) – PKR has denied having any links with the UK-based organisation, Liberal International, which stands in solidarity with the people of Israel following the war in Gaza.

PKR information chief Fahmi Fadzil condemned the “deliberate attempts” by some quarters to associate the party with Liberal International.

“I confirm that PKR is not, and has never been, a member of Liberal International,” he said in a statement.

He stressed that PKR stands in full solidarity with the Palestinian people and “vehemently condemns the brutal actions of the Israeli Zionist regime, which continues to oppress, persecute, and kill the Palestinian population”.

Netizens had taken to social media to question a possible link between PKR and Liberal International, posting screenshots of PKR being listed as a member of the organisation on its official website.

Checks by FMT showed that PKR and Gerakan were listed as two of the eight Asian members of Liberal International.

On Oct 7, Liberal International released a statement expressing its support for the people of Israel in condemning the Hamas attacks on Israeli territory, and said it “recognises Israel’s right to defend itself”.
