KOTA BHARU – The newly announced leadership line up of Pakatan Harapan is just an effort by the opposition to repair its image before the 14th General Election (GE14), said UMNO Information chief Tan Sri Annuar Musa.
He said what they were trying to do was to hide the fact that the opposition pact was actually controlled by DAP.
“With the GE14 is drawing closer they are in a mess. They have come out with a list of leaders to try to hide the real situation – being under the thumb of DAP,” he said.
Annuar was speaking to reporters after participating in the Ketereh-level 2017 Kuala Lumpur SEA Games Torch Run (KL2017) here today.
Annuar, who is also Ketereh Member of Parliament, added that he believed that it was not a solid pact as the line-up was not elected or based on consensus.
In a press conference late last night, Pakatan Harapan announced its new leadership line-up led by PPBM chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad as its chairman, PKR’s Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as the de facto leader and PKR’s Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail as president.
Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin of PPBM, Lim Guan Eng (DAP) and Mohamad Sabu (Amanah) have been named as deputy presidents. – BERNAMA
