(Updated) PKR lays out plans for GE16, to ensure Anwar remains PM

SHAH ALAM: PKR will start preparing for the next general election (GE16) two years earlier to ensure Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim remains Prime Minister.

PKR deputy president Rafizi Ramli said this was why PKR would be rolling out two plans, known as Kemas16 and Pop25 to strengthen the grassroots and leadership in preparation for GE16.

Kemas16 (Keadilan Menang PRU16) programme is PKR's framework to prepare and consolidate the party's strength to face the next general election.

Pop25 (Pemerkasaan Organisasi Parti 25 Tahun) on the other hand is aimed at ensuring the party remains relevant for the next 25 years.

"Both of these frameworks aim to consolidate the strength of the party from the grassroots level to the top leadership level so that we are ahead in our preparation to face the next general election.

"After the launch (of these two frameworks) today, the top leadership at every level of the party will be mobilised to the states followed by branches, which demonstrates our readiness to face GE16.

"The rolling out of these two frameworks is to ensure that Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim remains as Prime Minister after the next general election,"Rafizi said in his speech at the PKR convention held in conjunction with the party's 25th anniversary celebration today.

Present were PKR secretary-general Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail and all party top leaders.

"That is, why as a party known for its reforms agenda, our task is continuous and it will never end. Because we have to find new paths that others are not willing to take," he said.

Rafizi added that at present, the strengths held by PKR, such as the ability to control alternative media, are starting to be dominated by opposing parties.

"Since most of the party leaders are also government leaders, we will face challenges in addressing issues (faced by the people)

"This is because, if we speak, we will be bound by all policies, administrative rules that we also have to comply with," he said.
