KUALA LUMPUR: The PKR Congress which was scheduled to start on Friday is seen as a significant milestone for Anwar Ibrahim who makes a return as president of the party he founded in 1998.
The three-day congress which would be held at Ideal Convention Centre (IDCC) Shah Alam would mark his return of the Port Dickson member of parliament as PKR president since winning the 2018 party election uncontested.
The official results for the election, which would determine the next deputy president, vice-presidents and 20 cetral leadership members would also be announced at the congress.
It would be its first party congress after PKR, which is part of Pakatan Harapan (PH), formed the government after winning the 14th General Election on May 9.
Among the motions that would be tabled during the congress would revolve around economy, and social and political reforms.
PKR Communications director Fahmi Fadzil was reported as saying that assemblies for the Wanita and Youth wings would take place on Friday, while the central level congress would be held on Saturday and Sunday.
“Ten representatives from each division to attend the congress. Normally, 1,000 to 1,500 people attend, but (there may be) more this year as this is the first year the congress is being held with PH as the government,” he was reported as saying.
