JOHOR BAHRU, April 7 – Pakatan Harapan (PH) has announced it will be contesting under Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) ‘eye’ symbol in the 14th general election (GE14).

The announcement was made by Pakatan Harapan chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad at a Jelajah Harapan programme in Taman Bukit Dahlia, Pasir Gudang, here tonight.

 He said the opposition pact made the decision as they could not contest using the PH logo and also because Parti Peribumi Bersatu Malaysia has been deregistered.    

“I am happy to announce to all present and all in Malaysia and the world that in the 14th general election, four parties (DAP, PKR, Amanah) including Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia as an individual will be using the symbol of Keadilan.

“It is not easy to convince all parties to drop their own symbols. DAP has used their symbol for 60 years. I am extremely happy because this was not achieved before,” at a massive ceramah at Taman Bukit Dahlia here, which was attended by some 5,000-odd supporters.

Also present were Pakatan Harapan deputy president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, PKR president Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, Amanah president Mohamad Sabu and DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng.

In February, Dr Mahathir said that all of the PH pact’s parties will deploy a common logo for the polls even if the Registrar of Societies (RoS) does not recognise the coalition in time for its symbol to be usable.

The regulator has held off on the approval, citing continued problems with Dr Mahathir’s PPBM over alleged failures in documentation. During the event, Amanah had also named their candidates for Johor. — PN
