PKR must change
The upcoming Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) National Congress to commence starting from tomorrow until 30 May at the Trade Centre in Kota Bahru, Kelantan will be watched by all supporters of Pakatan Rakyat.
During the congress, the PKR leadership must come up with a firm and concrete solution to stem out its defection sickness as well as to shed off its "ex-Umno" image in order to become a formidable opposition party in the Pakatan Rakyat coalition.
Since after the general elections, PKR has been frequently rocked by series of resignations and defections of its members of parliament and state assemblymen which saw the numbers of its seat in the parliament being reduced to 25 as compared to the previous outstanding number.
The leaders of PKR must be brave enough to come up strongly against opportunist in its party and to get rid of those "Umno characteristic" leaders and members in order not to jeopardize its image and reputation again in the next general election.
Besides, PKR leaders must also stop all its favoritism in its election candidate selection and all its potential candidates ought to be filter and censored as careful as possible in order to avoid another round of defections.
If defections in PKR continues, it is feared that its supporters and voters will not be able to put their trust on its candidates anymore in the next general election.
So, PKR you need to act fast.
