The scheduled visit by Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to Kuching on Monday (July 22) has been called off amid what many perceive to be an ongoing rift in the party.

The cancellation comes amidst a perceived rift within the party between two factions – one supporting Anwar and the other supporting deputy president Datuk Seri Azmin Ali.

Earlier today, PKR Sarawak chairman Baru Bian indicated he was on Azmin’s side when he told The Star that he did not sign the statement supporting Anwar.


KUCHING: The scheduled visit by Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to Kuching on Monday (July 22) has been called off amid what many perceive to be an ongoing rift in the party.

PKR Sarawak secretary Vernon Kedit in a notice today disclosed the ‘Jelajah Presiden ke Sarawak’ (President’s Visit to Sarawak) programme scheduled to be attended by Anwar is now cancelled.

“Please note that this programme due for Monday, July 22, has been cancelled until further notice,” said Vernon.


When asked further, Vernon said the cancellation was due to “an unforeseen clash and pressing engagement in the party president’s tight schedule”.

The itinerary for Anwar’s programme in Kuching had included a ‘Townhall Meeting with Anwar Ibrahim’ at a leading hotel at 3.30pm, followed by a press conference at the same venue.

Anwar was then scheduled to speak at a ‘Ceramah Umum Bersama DSAI, President Keadilan’ at Third Mile Bazaar that night.

The cancellation comes amidst a perceived rift within the party between two factions – one supporting Anwar and the other supporting deputy president Datuk Seri Azmin Ali.

Earlier today, PKR Sarawak chairman Baru Bian indicated he was on Azmin’s side when he told The Star that he did not sign the statement supporting Anwar.
