Opposition Leader, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has been given an upgrade from the government as his status now is equivalent with that of a Minister, according to Pakatan Harapan (PH) Chief Whip Coordinator Anthony Loke.

He said that the letter was personally handed over to the PKR President before the second meeting of the Steering Committee (MoU) on Transformation and Political Stability in the Parliament Meeting Room.

Anthony added that with the upgrade, the confirmation letter entitles Anwar to receive Minister-level perks.

Before the meeting began, the Prime Minister handed over a letter of confirmation to the Leader of the Opposition to upgrade the status of the Office of the Leader of the Opposition with facilities equivalent to the Minister’s Office.

Meetings like this bring a new political culture to our country. Despite the political differences between the parties, we can still sit together to discuss and find common ground in the interest of the country.
