PENANG, Jan 2 – DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng has urged Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to maintain discipline among PKR leaders to ensure the people's continuous support for Pakatan Rakyat (PR).
He was responding to reporters’ questions about the misunderstanding between some PKR and Pas leaders in Perak, which could affect PR’s chances of winning the Kuala Terengganu parliamentary by-election.
Lim, who is Penang Chief Minister, told a press conference at his office that he would look into the cause of the misunderstanding and would find ways to resolve the matter.
On the candidate fielded by Pas for the Kuala Terengganu parliamentary seat, Lim said DAP would give its full support to the candidate.
“DAP, as a component in Pakatan Rakyat, will support and extend our cooperation to ensure a win for the candidate," he added.
Pas president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang announced last night that Wakaf Mempelam Assemblyman Mohd Abdul Wahid Endut would contest the Kuala Terengganu by-election, for which nomination will be held on Jan 6, followed by polling on Jan 17.
The by-election is held following the death of its Member of Parliament Datuk Razali Ismail on Nov 28 last year. – Bernama
