A total of 13 leaders aligned to Rafizi emerged winners.
Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was today officially announced as Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) president for the 2022-2025 session at the party’s 16th national congress after winning the post uncontested in the 2022 PKR Election.
The announcement on the PKR’s new party leadership was made by its Election Committee (JPP) deputy chairman Saiful Izham Ramli.
“This is a line-up that will build a better PKR. The party will be free from traitors who were once in the party,” Saiful said.
Former Pandan Member of Parliament (MP) Mohd Rafizi Ramli was officially announced PKR deputy president after beating the party’s secretary-general Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail in the contest for the post.
According to the official PKR website, Rafizi garnered 59,678 votes, while Saifuddin Nasution obtained 43,010 votes.
Also announced were the list of 20 new Central Leadership Council (MPP) members who were elected by the 2,665 delegates at the PKR National Congress yesterday.
A total of 13 leaders aligned to Rafizi were announced as winners, with most of them elected into the top 20 posts in the party.
However, those in Rafizi’s camp failed to secure the chief positions in the women and youth wings.
The 13 individuals were former PKR youth chief Akmal Nasrullah, Fahmi Zainol, Lee Chean Chung, Nur Azrina Surip, Simon Ooi Tze Min, Wong Chen, Datuk Romli Ishak, Mohammad Bakhtiar Wan Chik, Zahir Hassan, Gerald Hans Isaac, Syed Ibrahim Syed Noh, Raiyan Abdul Rahim, and Zahir Hassan.
One of the biggest surprises was the entry of Hans Issac, who had recently lost the Ampang division chief race.
Although PKR prides itself as a multiracial party, none of the Indians who contested for a place in the council made it into the top 20 list.
