KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia Oct 30 (NNN-Bernama) PKR president-elect Anwar Ibrahim has described allegations that UMNO MPs were being courted to join Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) to block him from becoming the eighth Prime Minister as mere media interpretations.
According to the Port Dickson MP, he had no reason to doubt the agreement and understanding between party leaders in Pakatan Harapan (PH).
Thank you for being concerned about my journey…but I do not think this is all (conspiracy) happening. This is just the reading and interpretation of the media. a repeat of the conspiracy in 1998 is just media interpretation, he told reporters at the Parliament lobby yesterday.
According to media reports, several UMNO leaders yesterday described the claim by Bersatu Supreme Council Member Abdul Kadir Jasin that about 40 UMNO MPs will be joining Bersatu as a conspiracy to block Anwar’s political journey.
Asked if the UMNO MPs joining PH would have a positive effect, Anwar said the matter was being studied and discussed.
Like what Dr Mahathir (Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad) said, study first and discuss, he said. NNN-BERNAMA
