There has been progress in the ongoing talks between Pakatan Harapan (PH) and the Malaysian United Democratic Alliance (Muda) on cooperation for the 15th general election (GE15), says PH chairman Anwar Ibrahim.
Anwar, who is also PKR president, said the media reports which went viral yesterday claiming PH had rejected Muda were not true.
"Not true, we are still negotiating and there has been progress," he said to reporters after a special meeting of the PKR Central Leadership Council (MPP) at the PKR headquarters in Petaling Jaya last night.
Anwar had earlier chaired the meeting, which began at 9.40pm and was also attended by PKR deputy president Rafizi Ramli, vice-president Aminuddin Harun who is also Negeri Sembilan menteri besar, women’s chief Fadhlina Sidek and youth chief Adam Adli, as well as the MPP members.
PKR communications director Ahmad Fahmi Fadzil said he expects a final decision on the cooperation between PH and Muda to be reached as early as Oct 12.
He said the meeting, which followed the dissolution of Parliament announced by Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob, discussed among others the preparations of the PKR election machinery as well as the party’s desire to contest more parliamentary seats in GE15.
He said following the dissolution of Parliament and with GE15 to be held in the near future, several PH agendas including the PH convention scheduled for the end of October might either be brought forward or postponed.
