Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad made an unusual appearance at today’s PKR headquarters to meet with Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and other Pakatan Harapan leaders in the midst of continuing rumors of a possible governmental change.
PH leaders’ aides exchanged photos, among others, of Dr Mahathir, Anwar, DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng, Amanah President Mohamad Sabu, and Warisan President Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal at the venue.
A PKR source verified the photographs and believed the meeting would bring positive news to the Malaysians, particularly those who backed PH.
Press staff assembling at headquarters at 2.30pm saw the entourage of Dr. Mahathir, including his friend, Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir, and notorious Secretary-General Datuk Marzuki Yahya, arrive at 3 pm.
Several party insiders had pointed out before today’s meeting that opposition leader Anwar was not attending meetings involving leaders of PH parties and allies dubbed Pakatan Plus.
Anwar and the leadership of the PKR had been missing from a conference at Yayasan Albukhary Kuala Lumpur on June 4.
This prompted the press to ask Dr Mahathir about his relationship with Anwar, with the former answering that if he has “an issue” with him, the question should be put to the latter.
After the one-day parliamentary meeting, which PKR later claimed is regarding Bersatu internal politics, Anwar and PKR were both absent at the May 18 press conference at the Perdana Leadership Foundation
PKR Youth has also been unusually quiet, while other PH parties, including controversial Bersatu Youth Leader Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman, make statements about the political development and governance of the Perikatan Nasional Government.
