No need to postpone PKR polls – Anwar

MELAKA, Sept 13 (Bernama) — The PKR election need not be postponed to make way for the Port Dickson parliamentary by-election, PKR president-elect Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said.

He said the campaign for the party polls had been ongoing for about a month, so the party machinery should have no problem to focus on the soon-to-be-held by-election.

“The proposal (to postpone the polls) is good, we all have to focus on the two elections…but between party post and parliamentary seat, which is more important?

“You have been campaigning for the party polls for about a month, I think that’s enough, now let’s focus on Port Dickson,” he said when addressing about 1,000 PKR members at the New Malaysia Agenda programme at the Melaka Internatinal Trade Centre in Ayer Keroh here tonight.

Also present was PKR vice-president Shamsul Iskandar Mohd Akin, who had earlier called on the PKR Central Election Committee for postpone the party polls until after the Port Dickson by-election.
