Zuraida says still waiting to meet Anwar for ‘peace talks’

Zuraida Kamaruddin says three letters were sent to Anwar Ibrahim (pic) but there was no response from the party president.

KUALA LUMPUR – PKR vice-president Zuraida Kamaruddin wants to meet with PKR president Anwar Ibrahim for “peace talks” to resolve internal party problems.

“I am waiting for the president to call me to meet up.

“That day (Anwar) said he’s ready to meet, so we’re just waiting for him. We want to speak with our president and his people,” Zuraidah, who is also Housing and Local Government Minister, told reporters after officiating the opening ceremony of Smart Cities Asia 2019.

She said three letters had been sent to the PKR president regarding issues affecting the party.

Zuraida had earlier said the three letters sent to Anwar had received no response and that was why she had not showed up for PKR central leadership council meetings.

Anwar had said on Aug 30 that he had already responded to one of the three letters sent to him, and that party secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution Ismail had responded to the other two.

On July 18, Zuraida admitted there was a split in PKR and that it was up to Anwar to resolve the problem. This followed a sex video clip allegedly involving PKR deputy president Mohamad Azmin Ali going viral. Zuraidah is aligned to Azmin.

Noting the claim that cooperation between Pakatan Harapan partners in Johor was no longer strong, as revealed by ex-PKR Johor chairman Hassan Abdul Karim, she said things were fine in Selangor.

“We had a meeting of PH Selangor, which was chaired by Selangor Menteri Besar (Aminuddin Saari),” she said

Earlier today, Hassan revealed that after PH Johor had taken hold of the state, PKR, PPBM, DAP, and Amanah had not held any meeting or convention together.
