Rafizi: PKR on same page with Pakatan Harapan over PAS

PETALING JAYA: PKR are on the same page with Pakatan Harapan and any differences in opinions about PAS "have ended", said PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli (pic).
"I think the difference in opinion on the negotiation of seats with PAS has ended with the decision of Pakatan Harapan's presidential council that was supported by PKR's political bureau, and honoured by Datuk Seri Azmin Ali himself in his statement two days ago to the media," said Rafizi in a statement on Saturday.
On Tuesday, Pakatan's presidential council announced its decision to not cooperate with PAS in the 14th general election (GE14).
PKR deputy president Azmin, who had previously admitted to having informal talks with PAS to form an alliance in the next general election, said that PKR respected the Pakatan presidential council's decision to cease cooperation with PAS.
In a statement on Thursday, Azmin said he would move on with the "necessary implementation" for GE14.
Rafizi had previously revealed that there was a split in the top leadership of PKR.
He said the leaders in the political bureau were often at loggerheads and did not respect the bureau's decisions.
A report on Friday, quoting an unnamed party source, said that the PKR political bureau had given Rafizi a stern verbal warning over his actions and statements that had damaged the good name of the party.
However, Rafizi denied that he was warned by the PKR political bureau.
"I was not warned by anyone and there was no disciplinary action carried out by the political bureau. The news of me being dismissed from the party is also false," said Rafizi on Saturday.
PKR secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution Ismail had also dismissed the report on Friday, saying that the news was false.
"I am not surprised that this happened, because it has happened a number of times before whenever there is a significant differences in leadership," said Rafizi.
"There are some PKR leaders who have given inaccurate information to the media by hiding behind the title of 'party source' to ensure their comments are taken as the general opinion, even if it is against the actual discussion or decision of the political bureau or the central executive council," he said.
