KUCHING, Aug 6: Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Sarawak has criticised certain parties for misleading the people and party members that there will be a dinner to raise funds in preparation for the upcoming 12th state election (PRN12) to be held in Bangi, Selangor in the near future.
PKR Sarawak information chief Abun Sui Anyit in a statement yesterday said the state leadership was not aware of such a fundraising dinner.
He added that the activity was also not being discussed at the state leadership meeting.
“As the activity to be organised is believed to collect funds for Keadilan Sarawak to face the upcoming 12th state election, thus it directly affects the party’s goodwill.
“The activity also did not receive the consent from the party’s central leadership.
“Therefore, PKR Sarawak leadership criticises certain parties who want to confuse the people as the activity has yet to be approved by the party’s state leadership,” he said.
Abun Sui was responding to certain parties who viral a promotion banner on social media which outlines that there will be a fundraising dinner to be hosted by PKR in Bangi, Selangor to raise funds for the upcoming state election.
He added that the irresponsible parties had also used the pictures of PKR leaders namely party president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, Datuk Seri Wan Azizah Wan Ismail and Negeri Sembilan Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Aminudin Harun in drafting for the promotion of the fundraising dinner.
Thus, he urged the irresponsible party or if it were from party members to stop such an action immediately.
He also reminded party members and the public to be aware of such activities and urged them to contact the party with regards to any activity conducted by PKR Sarawak.
Abun Sui stressed that PKR Sarawak will not be responsible for any direct or indirect consequences arising from the promotion and the sales of fundraising tickets as the activity did not obtain the approval from the state leadership. —DayakDaily
