Former UMNO supreme council member Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah who joined the Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) last week, has been named as the Pakatan Harapan’s chief secretary today.
This was announced by Opposition leader Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail at the Parliament lobby.
She said his appointment came into effect, immediately. Saifuddin had joined the PKR last Thursday citing the reason
he left UMNO was because he was unhappy with the way the party handled the RM2.6 billion issue and the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).
Meanwhile, the Permatang Pauh member of Parliament also announced the setting up of a task force to draft a common policy framework for the Pakatan Harapan.
The task force would consist of three members from each of its partners, DAP, PKR and Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah), she said.
