PKR agrees with DAP on ‘end of Pakatan’

The top PKR leadership has decided that the party is on the same page as DAP regarding the “end of Pakatan Rakyat” but insists that the broken ties will not affect the composition of the Selangor government.

The Selangor government, said party sources, will continue to function as a loose coalition of assemblymen who support Azmin Ali as the Mentri Besar.

According to sources, the unique political arrangement was decided at a political bureau meeting on Tuesday night and it is believed to have received the blessings of PKR asdvisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

DAP and PAS leaders have also been briefed on the decision, which is expected to be announced later Wednesday.

Relations in Pakatan had broken down between PAS and DAP over a number of issues, including the proposed hudud law by PAS in Kelantan.

On Tuesday, DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng caused ripples with his announcement that Pakatan had “ceased to exist”.

The two warring parties have traded angry accusations against each other and the DAP-led government in Penang has taken the drastic step of pressuring PAS politicians to resign from their appointed posts in the state government.
