PKR president Wan Azizah, seen here with Anwar, has demanded two PKR elected reps in Sabah give up their seats after they quit the party in the past week.

In light of one assemblyman leaving and another on the verge of quitting, PKR wants to enforce agreements its elected officials in Sabah had signed to vacate their assembly or parliamentary seats if they left the party, said president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail.

Wan Azizah said it was looking at its options but conceded the action would be difficult considering such agreements had been successfully challenged in court before. (more…)

‘Restore democracy, reform electoral system’

Leven Woon

PKR president Wan Azizah says her party is willing to work with the BN govt to restore democracy and for an electoral system overhaul.

PKR is calling for a bi-partisan effort to restore democracy . Its president Wan Azizah Wan Ismail said her party is willing to work hand-in hand with the Barisan Nasional government to achieve this.

Speaking at PKR’S  annual national congress Wan Azizah said the fact that Pakatan Rakyat has garnered 51% of the popular votes in the recent polls but only won 89 out of 222 parliamentary seat shows the urgent need for a system overhaul. (more…)

Umno fears Nurul, not Azmin

CT Ali

Umno knows that Azmin will self-destruct and take Anwar Ibrahim and PKR down with him. It is Nurul that Umno is now battling against.

Nurul Izzah Anwar lives in a man’s world but is still a lady. She does not seek to be the equal of these men. She seeks to do better!

She tells us that she is the proud mother of two cuties and that she is the defection-proof member of parliament for Lembah Pantai.

I like that description of herself on her Facebook “defection-proof MP of Lembah Pantai”. Huh, what pizzazz! (more…)

1 Care: No point road show if you can't answer the basics, Azizah tells Liow

Wan Azizah Wan Ismail

We note the answer from Health Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai that the blueprint for the controversial 1Care health system will only be done in two years.

The Minister has also promised to launch a road show to explain and engage the public regarding the 1Care health system.

As mentioned in our earlier statement, we question the commitment of the Minister’s assurances with regards to his records vis-à-vis the Lynas controversy. (more…)

Azizah: Vote for us and we'll deliver RM4,000 p/m minimum household income

PKR president Wan Azizah Wan Ismail unveiled a slew of strategies to improve the livelihood of Malaysians, the majority of whom are struggling with sky-rocketing prices, promising voters a much brighter furture should they vote for her party in general elections widely expected to be held early next year.

Not only did the Wan Azizah announce that PKR had finalised a plan to raise the minimum household income to RM4,000 within 5 years, and introduce a minimum wage of RM1,100 per month, she also had good news for the Felda settlers, who number around 2 million and form the traditional voter base of arch rival Umno.

“Our main strategy to raise the minimum household income to RM4,000 in five years. Keadilan is the first party to target this. This shift in mindset is the weapon most feared by the ruling elite, as they know this will break their race-based economic strategy,” a cheerful Wan Azizah said in her policy speech at Pulai Springs, Johor on Saturday.
