Pakatan Harapan (PH) has selected PKR president Anwar Ibrahim as its parliamentary opposition leader for the second time, ahead of the Dewan Rakyat assembly to be held on May 18.
Anwar said that Pakatan Harapan secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution Ismail has informed the speaker of the decision by the opposition coalition.
“Saifuddin has informed the speaker of the Harapan presidential council’s decision and he has also informed all those aligned with the opposition, and Warisan.
“I have been named as the new opposition leader once more,” he said during a live broadcast on his official Facebook today.
Anwar was previously the opposition leader in Parliament from June 26, 2013, to March 16, 2015. He was MP for Permatang Pauh at the time.
Now Port Dickson MP, he replaces Umno’s Ismail Sabri Yaakob who held the position during PH’s stint in federal power.
