Former Sarawak Deputy Chief Minister Daniel Tajem finally decided to join Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) according a statement by the party after a closed-door meeting of State PKR leaders with Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim in Kuching on Sunday.
Tajem decision to join PKR was hardly surprising given his close association with the opposition party and was invited to several of it events – including PKR national congress on Nov 29, 2008.
The former deputy president of Parti Bansa Dayak Sarawak (PBDS) was immediately appointed as state PKR advisor – joining the ranked of Datuk Hafsah Harun and Dominique Ng.
Anwar also officially confirmed rumour that Ngemah assemblyman Gabriel Adit had quit the party.
“Adit had left PKR over a month ago,” Anwar said. “If he want to jump (to another party) that’s up to him.”
Anwar also dismissed the possibility of PKR would collaborate with newly formed party – Parti Cinta Malaysia (PCM) which is based in his home state Penang.
“PKR has its own policies… PCM also has their own different policies. PKR has nothing to do with PCM,” he said.
