The ongoing bickering among leaders in PKR will not end soon but will drag the party down south, former lifetime member Badrul Hisham Shaharin said today.
Badrul, better known as Chegu Bard, said this commenting on the recent spat between PKR Central Committee member Latheefa Koya who yesterday slammed Rafizi Ramli for posting the proposed logos for Pakatan Harapan on the social media.
“I do not see how the bickering can end and it won’t end in my opinion. It will only get worse.
“I would like to ask PKR how are you going to solve the problem in your party?” questioned Chegu Bard.
Yesterday, Rafizi’s Facebook post was met with heavy criticism by netizens who poked fun at Pakatan Harapan logo designs.
The Pandan lawmaker responded by saying that he was not the man behind the designs as it was crafted by Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia and PKR.
Latheefa retorted on her FB post but the PKR lawyer did not name Rafizi.
She said “You have collected millions from the public and you dare come up with awful looking – the cheek! putting it for people’s vote? Embarrassing!”
Chegu Bard a staunch critique of Selangor Menteri Besar and PKR deputy president Azmin Ali then added that Rafizi has to explain to the public about Latheefa’s allegation that the PKR vice president had collected millions.
He further said that Latheefa on the other hand must provide some sort of proof to back her allegation.
“I think Rafizi must come up with answers. Latheefa alleged that he collected millions. How he got it?
“Latheefa must provide proof. How can she come up with such allegation without proof?” he added.
Yesterday, it was reported that the PKR vice-president unveiled the designs and made the announcement via Facebook telling Pakatan Harapan supporters and Malaysians that he would like some constructive feedback on the logos which have been handpicked by the pact’s presidential council last week.
“Pakatan Harapan will register a logo which will be used together by all PH parties in two weeks’ time. The presidential council last week has agreed in shortlisting the following logos to be shared with Malaysians in order to obtain their feedback,” Rafizi said in a Facebook posting.
The first logo features the words “Harapan” in black followed by a red backdrop, with what seems to be a symbol of the sun on top of the words Harapan.
The second logo is almost the same except that the red backdrop has now been replaced with a yellow one.
The third logo utilises a red and white colour theme as well as the use of a thumbs-up sign in red, and the words “Pakatan Harapan” in black below. “Harapan” is given a bolder font; possibly for it to stand out more.-5/5/2017
