PKR must fight to bring about systemic change, says Anwar

Taking a swipe at the Perikatan Nasional administration during his speech at the party’s 15th national congress today, Anwar reminded all delegates that politics should not be an elite game to wrestle power.

“We must seek to represent the people’s aspirations, otherwise we are no different from the traitors,” he told the congress, held online.

Anwar also said the party must return to the principle of good governance, adding that it must continue to reject corruption and any abuse of power

This was different from the current leadership which, he said, did not understand the people’s problems on the ground.

According to him, one of the government’s biggest failures was procuring an insufficient supply for vaccines and providing inadequate testing for Covid-19.

He voiced concern over the high number of infections and deaths despite the third movement control order, while some 2.1 million people remained underemployed.

“We (the people) are forced to take care of ourselves because the leadership has betrayed our trust and failed in fulfilling its duties.

“This is what happens when we are careless with vaccine procurement and are slow to act compared to our Asean neighbours,” he said.

On a separate matter, Anwar hoped the party could hold a “special congress” by the end of the year once the lockdown restrictions were lifted.

More than 2,000 delegates are taking part in the congress through the Zoom application from their homes.

Party secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution Ismail previously announced that the party’s national congress for 2021 and 2022 will be held simultaneously next year, in view of the pandemic.
