KUALA LUMPUR, MON: Feb 9, 2009
DAP will continue to support Parti Keadilan Rakyat de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as the opposition leader, DAP Secterary-General Lim Guan Eng said.
He said Anwar would remain as Pakatan Rakyat leader and as the oppostion leader as agreed by the PR leaderships.
“He will remain, as no single leader has ever questioned this during internal meetings whether at the highest level or otherwise,” he said in a statement here, today.
He said PR had endorsed a position that no individual party policy could be regarded a PR policy unless it was approved unanimously by all three parties.
He also appealed to DAP chairman Karpal Singh to use internal party channels if he wished to change policies within the PR instead of using the media.
Yesterday, Karpal Singh told a news conference that Anwar was not fit to lead the PR and that he had been “nothing but trouble” for the opposition alliance.
His remarks came in the wake of the PR losing the Perak state government to the Barisan Nasional (BN) on Friday, which Karpal blamed on the immorality of Anwar in trying to seek defectors from the BN to shore up the PR.
