PETALING JAYA, Nov 11 — PKR deputy president Rafizi Ramli today said that Perikatan Nasional (PN) and its component, Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia, had begun taking after Umno and PAS following their stint in government together.
Rafizi said that he was disappointed that his former colleague, PN election director Datuk Seri Azmin Ali, made light of Pakatan Harapan (PH) candidates who recently declared their assets, adding that it was because Azmin did not dare do the same.
“I need to say, ‘Congratulations’ to Azmin because he is one of those in politics who is always quick to adjust to parties that he used to fight against,” Rafizi said at the PKR headquarters here today.
Azmin, who is caretaker international trade and industry minister, had yesterday said that PH’s asset declarations were “all theatrics”.
This came after PKR candidates, including its president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and his deputy Rafizi Ramli, started declaring their assets ahead of the November 19 general election.
Rafizi declared his net assets to be valued at RM18,851,350. with the bulk of it coming from his shares in his company Invoke Solutions Sdn Bhd.
Anwar, meanwhile, declared a house and three plots of land worth approximately RM10.35 million and another RM829,000 in cash and savings.
