PENANG, 2 Jan 2009: Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim should maintain discipline among PKR leaders to ensure the people’s continuous support for Pakatan Rakyat, DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng said today.
He was responding to questions from reporters pertaining to a misunderstanding between some PKR and PAS leaders in Perak which could affect their chances of winning the Kuala Terengganu parliamentary by-election.
Lim, who is Penang Chief Minister, told a press conference at his office, that he would look into the cause of the misunderstanding and would find ways to resolve the matter.
On the candidate fielded by PAS to contest the Kuala Terengganu parliamentary seat, Lim said DAP would give its full support to the candidate picked by PAS.
“…DAP as a component in [Pakatan Rakyat] will support and extend our cooperation to ensure a win for the candidate,” he added.
PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang announced last night that Wakaf Mempelam assemblyman Mohd Abdul Wahid Endut would be fielded as the PAS candidate in the Kuala Terengganu by-election, for which nomination is on 6 Jan.
The by-election is held following the death of its Member of Parliament Datuk Razali Ismail on 28 Nov 2008.
Polling for the Kuala Terengganu by-election is on 17 Jan. — Bernama
