PKR leader Anwar Ibrahim today dismissed speculations that one of his parliamentarians Zulkifli Nordin from Kulim-Bandar Baru would soon be defecting to rivals Umno.
"There is no basis in the speculation," Anwar told reporters in a press conference in Parliament.
The opposition leader said that he was in constant contact with Zulkifli and that there was no imminent risk of losing the first-time MP to Umno. Meanwhile the man at the centre of attention himself dismissed talks that he would be joining Umno soon. "I am still with PKR. I am still seated on the PKR seat. The question of defection doesn't arise at all," he told reporters when met at the Parliament lobby.
Zulkifli was not present at the Anwar press conference which took place just minutes before he spoke to the media.
