KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 21 — Parti Keadilan Rakyat is willing to listen to the voices of any leaders or members to ensure that no one feels that they have been sidelined, said vice-president Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad.
This follows a recent news report where a Keadilan state assemblyman expressed hope for the upcoming party’s congress to discuss the role of non-Malay members and leaders.
Nik Nazmi said he took note of the matter and stressed that the party has never sidelined any community or favoured a specific race.
“I understand this sentiment because Keadilan is a national party consisting of members and leaders of various races.Within the Cabinet, we have ministers from the Tionghua (Chinese) community, the Indian community, and deputy ministers from Sabah.
“So, I understand this view, but we also need to understand this is not a Pakatan Harapan government. This is a Unity Government where Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has to weigh many considerations to ensure the formation of a stable government following the results of the 15th General Election,” he said.
Nik Nazmi was speaking to the press after a working visit to the Indah Water Konsortium (IWK) solar photovoltaic project at Pantai 1 IWK sewerage treatment plant today.
