PETALING JAYA: PKR president Anwar Ibrahim has named four more of his party MPs who he said were offered money to quit and support Perikatan Nasional.
The four are Padang Serai MP M Karupaiya, Sungai Siput’s S Kesavan, Putatan’s Awang Husaini and Miri’s Michael Teo. Sekijang MP Natrah Ismail had earlier lodged a report with the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission that she had been offered to switch sides.
Anwar said the four were offered money to switch sides, adding this was an abuse of power.
“Even after luring three or four of our MPs, they still don’t have a majority and they won’t have 106 MPs,” he claimed during a press conference at Eastin Hotel, today. The government needs 112 MPs to have a simple majority in the Dewan Rakyat
He said besides Natrah, the others were also given offers while some were threatened.
