PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has confirmed speculations that there have been attempts of a betrayal towards the Pakatan Harapan government.
“We are shocked by the developments – it is a betrayal as there was a promise (to hand over power to him).
“As there are changes (in government), I expect it will happen soon, perhaps tomorrow (Monday).
“Even though there is no announcement tonight but from my information, the effort is ongoing,” he told friends visiting his residence in Bukit Segambut for weekly prayers last night.
The defection, he claimed, involved Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) and several PKR members.
“We are waiting for more information, but there are attempts by our former allies Bersatu and several traitors from PKR to topple the Pakatan Harapan government.
“They have met with the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong earlier this evening, but there hasn’t been any announcement.”
He said this at a weekly prayer event at his home in Kampung Segambut Dalam, yesterday.
Anwar, who is also Port Dickson member of Parliament, said he did not have full information on the speculation that a new government would be formed.
“On the matter of a new government…I don’t have the full details yet,” he said during the sermon (tazkirah), which was streamed live via PKR’s Facebook page.
During the tazkirah session, Anwar was seen consistently checking his mobile phone.
Anwar is expected to have an audience with the King at Istana Negara today.
