KUALA LUMPUR: Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said yesterday he had held talks with a number of ruling coalition lawmakers interested in defecting.

Anwar, a former deputy premier who was sacked and jailed a decade ago, heads a three-party alliance that wrested unprecedented gains in the March 8 general election.

“People have come and approached me,” Anwar said, adding that he had spoken with “quite a number” of lawmakers and told them their support would not be bought.

“If you want to surrender at a price, then you have chosen the wrong party,” he told reporters, adding that they would be welcomed “if they accept our agenda”.

Anwar confirmed he was canvassing support from coalition lawmakers in East Malaysia.

The Barisan Nasional has 140 lawmakers in the new 222-seat parliament, against 199 in the previous 219-seat parliament. The opposition alliance claimed 82 seats from just 19 previously, and four more states. – AFP
