Pakatan Rakyat is willing to meet Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak to resolve the on-going political crisis in Perak but will not budge from its call for a snap state election.
“We are ready to meet him. We will give him our views and we will listen to what he has to say,” said Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim after chairing a Pakatan meeting at the PAS headquarters in Kuala Lumpur today.
He however said that Pakatan was very clear in what it believes is the ultimate solution - the dissolution of the state assembly to pave way for a state election so that the people can decide who they want as their government.
Najib has so far ruled out the prospect of calling for a state election.
“What is the point of having the discussion if there’s no mutual agreement because Najib has ruled out of having snap elections while Pakatan wants otherwise,” added Anwar.
Nevertheless, he said that Pakatan was ready to meet Najib for the sake of strengthening democracy in Perak.
Earlier today, Najib said he was ready to hold talks with Pakatan to find a solution to the Perak political impasse.
However, the premier had imposed some conditions - that the talks should not have any pre-conditions and be open to explore all possible solutions.
He also dismissed talks that BN was afraid to face a state election for fear of losing to Pakatan.
