KUALA LUMPUR: PKR deputy president Rafizi Ramli has urged members of the public not to hold any rallies or gatherings following the announcement that Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has been named as the new prime minister.
He urged all quarters to remain calm and avoid making provocative remarks.
"I advise against holding any rallies to prevent the risks of provocation. Be careful with media statements made by political figures.
"Be wary of social media content and messages that may cause concern or be used as an excuse for provocation," he said in a statement today.
He said the Pakatan Harapan chairman's appointment as the country's 10th PM should be used to bring Malaysians together to move forward and focus on nation-building.
Rafizi expressed his gratitude to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.
"We must all move forward and learn to cooperate to rebuild Malaysia for the sake of its future and the prosperity of the people of different groups, races, states and backgrounds.
"On behalf of PKR and friends from Pakatan Harapan, I would like to express my gratitude to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong for his consent to appoint Anwar as the prime minister who will be heading a unity government," he said.
After five days of a hung Parliament, Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah today today announced the appointment of Anwar as prime minister, thus ending the current political crisis.
