PKR is open to working with any politician with a desire to realise a Malaysia that is free of corruption and abuse of power.

Its president, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, said the party will continue its agenda of reform, based on justice and the wellbeing of all Malaysians.

However, he made no mention of former premier Najib Abdul Razak urging Umno to work with the Pakatan Harapan leader sans DAP.

“We are prepared to cooperate with politicians who seek an arrangement that is free from corruption, abuse of power, and one that upholds value politics.

“On the 2021 Budget that will be tabled soon, it must mobilise the bipartisan efforts and roles of both the government and the opposition in planning effective strategies to deal with the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, unemployment and poverty,” he said in a statement today.

Anwar thanked the Malay Rulers for “saving” Malaysia from a state of emergency.

He also said that recent warnings from the Malay Rulers on abuse of power and the principles of justice must not be taken lightly but supported by all who strongly oppose dishonesty.

“Any effort to restore the people’s mandate must be prioritised, (as well as) defending the dignity of the nation and country, without pawning off the principles of struggle and idealism,” he added.
