Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s concern from Sungai Buloh Prison about the fate of Pakatan Rakyat after the PAS Muktamar is the concern of the majority of Malaysians who had voted for PR in the last general elections two years ago, reposing their trust and hopes in PR to spearhead the political, socio-economic, educational and nation-building changes and end the corruption, cronyism and abuses of power rampant in the country if Malaysia is to achieve its full greatness as a nation.
DAP and I reaffirm our commitment to the PR Common Policy Framework and the PR consensus operational principle which had been the basis of PR’s success in the 2013 General Election, which ensured that the Najib government is a minority government for the first time in the nation’s history and denied the UMNO/BN coalition two-thirds parliamentary majority for the second general elections.
The UMNO/BN coalition is on its last legs, but there is no way Malaysians can continue to repose their trust and hope in Pakatan Rakyat if we cannot be steadfast, constant and consistent in our commitment to the PR Common Policy Framework and the PR consensus operational principle.
In fact, it is because of the serious violations of the PR Common Policy Framework and the PR consensus operational principle that PR at the national leadership level had effectively ceased to function for the past year.
It is no exaggeration to say that there will be no PR if there is no PR Common Policy Framework and the PR consensus operational principle.
The new PAS leadership killed Pakatan Rakyat at the PAS Muktamar and there are no signs of any effort to resuscitate PR by reaffirming the PR Common Policy Framework and PR consensus operational principle.
