3 signatures missing from document declaring support for Anwar

PKR president Anwar Ibrahim.

PORT DICKSON: Three more state chiefs have yet to sign a document declaring their support for PKR president Anwar Ibrahim.

They are from Johor, Selangor and Sarawak.

Kedah PKR chief Johari Abdul said they had contacted Amirudin Shaari of Selangor but they had failed to get him.

“We have contacted all of them. I have also sent Amirudin a text but he has not read it yet. Maybe he is busy with the water cuts in Selangor,” he said.

He said federal Works Minister Baru Bian could also be busy while Johor PKR chief Hassan Karim has submitted his resignation letter.

As for the Perak PKR chief, he said Farhash Wafa Salvador Rizal Mubarak was being detained in connection with police investigations into a gay sex video but has already given his consent, Johari added.

So far, 10 state PKR chiefs have signed the document to show their support for their president.

PKR leaders are now holding a retreat at a hotel here. Earlier, a three-hour closed-door meeting was held between PKR leaders aligned to Anwar and his deputy, Mohamed Azmin Ali.

The rift in PKR was reported to have widened after Anwar had told Azmin to quit if he was the man in a gay sex video said to have been taken at a hotel in Sandakan last May.

Former Santubong Youth leader Haziq Aziz had admitted to being one of the two men in the controversial video. Azmin has denied he was the other man in the video, claiming such attempts were aimed at killing his political career.
