SHAH ALAM: PKR President Anwar Ibrahim said Pakatan Harapan (PH) was able to work with any faction, including former Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad. PH and them can form a “great, grand coalition” as long as it was aligned with the values of the group.
“Asked if he was going to extend an invitation to Mahathir (on the planned grand coalition),” he said: ” I’m going to leave to PH. Whoever can be invited, but they need to obey the principles of (PH). It is not bringing their personal agendas or continuing with past negative acts.”
“100 Art and Literature Essays from the 2008-2011 Reformation Period”. After the launch of a book titled, he spoke to reporters.
He added that someone who wants to become prime minister must first commit to good governance reform. And also the fight against corruption.
“It’s not about shielding and enriching your family. And also cronies in the name of reform or the mandate of the people”. He added.
After that, “In your agenda for combating excesses, including , you must be clear and committed to advocating and assisting the plight of the rural poor and the marginalised communities among the rural Malays on the peninsula, the Indian estate workers or the Iban and Kadazan in Sarawak.”
In addition, in the proposed grand coalition, he said, a Malay coalition or a coalition of different races should usually seek to bring about progressive changes. It emphasis on the welfare of the people, rather than protecting corrupt parties.
He said the coalition’s proposed reforms would give the Rakyat confidence. Also, they are more serious in coping with economic woes and injustices, and in addressing poverty.
We should not really rely on the political class to feel the obligation to fix these issues. It is because they have had the ability for so long to do so, but there has been no effort. To me, those are the root problems.
Recently, Amanah backed Pejuang’s plan for all opposition parties to join a “grand coalition” in the next general election to face Perikatan Nasional.
After that, President Mohammad Sabu of Amanah said his party was prepared to play a peace-making role in bringing together opposition parties to form a grand coalition for the upcoming polls.
