PKR moves to support Dr Mahathir, says it is time to bring change

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad's resignation from Umno will have far-reaching impact on Malaysian politics, and the rakyat must seize this moment to bring about change, says PKR, a party formed to topple the former prime minister when he was in power. Its deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali said Dr Mahathir's "drastic and courageous" move, who was instrumental in bringing Umno to the pinnacle of power and success, would have ramifications with long-term impact on the Malaysian political landscape. "We are witnessing a sea change in Malaysian politics. The old walls of division built upon years of politicking are finally collapsing. "The announcement today by Dr Mahathir means that he has finally turned his back on his party. "The ramifications of such a drastic but courageous move are yet to be fully understood. Nevertheless, there is no doubt they will be far-reaching and will have long term impact on our political landscape," he said in a statement. PKR was formed with the sole purpose of toppling Dr Mahathir after he sacked former opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim back in 1999. – February 29, 2016. MORE TO COME]]>
