PAS invites Anwar to stand in Kota Baru
KOTA BARU, March 4 - PAS has invited Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to contest in the Kota Baru parliamentary seat if the court rules he can be fielded as a candidate in the next election.
PAS election strategist Datuk Wan Abdul Rahim Wan Abdullah said the party would help the former deputy prime minister to win back the seat, which it lost to the Barisan Nasional in 2004.
He said that since Parti Keadilan Rakyat was a PAS ally, it was logical for the two parties to cooperate and that includes extending this invitation to Anwar, who is PKR advisor.
Anwar was found guilty of corruption and has since been released on condition, which includes not being actively involved in politics until mid-2008.
In a related development, PKR deputy president Dr Syed Hussein Ali said the party would apply to the Registrar of Societies to allow Anwar to take over the presidency if he is elected at the party's elections in May.
Meanwhile, Anwar has threatened to file a RM10mil defamation suit against Gerakan president Datuk Seri Dr Lim Keng Yaik over a statement published in a Chinese daily on Jan 27.
He has given Lim 14 days to withdraw the remarks, in which the Energy, Water and Communications Minister purportedly asked voters to “watch your back.”
Speaking to reporters in Penang, Lim said he received the legal notice on Feb 29.
He added that he would not apologise for his remark.
