PETALING JAYA: PKR communication director Fahmi Fadzil is concerned that more slanders are likely to crop up ahead of the party’s upcoming election.
“I am not really worried about the presence of teams in the party, but my concern is about certain quarters that might take advantage of this democratic process by slandering others.
“Recently, I have issued a statement to deny the spread of short audio clips by Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim (lambasting PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin).
“I believe that there will be more similar incidents and misinformation, which will take place, with the intention of creating division in the party and to create wrong perception of the party,” he said.
Fahmi said this at the submission of his candidacy forms for the party’s election. The Lembah Pantai member of Parliament will contest for a post in the party’s central executive committee.
Asked on whether he will back any camps in the party, Fahmi said: “If there are camps, I am with Anwar’s. But since we have no camps, I will follow the president.
“We are a big family. Any miscommunication and misunderstanding will be settled amicably.
“The people are watching us,” he said.
Also submitting his candidacy forms for a spot in the PKR central executive committee was Dewan Rakyat deputy speaker Datuk Mohd Rashid Hasnon.
Rashid, who is also Batu Pahat MP, in a short speech has pledged to bring change into the party.
