Opposition PKR will be moving its headquarters from Brickfields to the upmarket Tropicana area in Petaling Jaya next week – barely two months after scoring its biggest electoral victory in the March 8 polls.

The move will be part of its post-election strategy to strengthen the party’s base and work force, as well as to “centralise” the operation of the parent body, Youth and Wanita wings.

According to PKR treasurer William Leong, the two buildings will cost the party RM5 million.

“We haven’t bought it yet, we will move in and rent it for the moment while we are raising the fund. The eventual plan is to buy the buildings,” he told Malaysiakini earlier this week.

While the party workers are expected to start moving into the new office in stages from next week, the date of the official launch of the new headquarters is yet to be set.

PKR emerged to be the biggest opposition party in the March 8 polls, winning 31 parliamentary seats from only a single seat it controlled after the 2004 poll.

Its allies DAP and PAS won 28 and 23 parliamentary seats respectively.

To house Anwar’s office

The plan to move the PKR headquarters was first disclosed by party vice-president Azmin Ali during an interview with Malaysiakini last week.

According to him, the new headquarters – which is undergoing its final stage of renovation – will also serve as its de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim’s new office.

Anwar’s office, a bungalow resided by party leader and Selangor Menteri Besar Khalid Ibrahim previously, is currently located at Section 16 in Petaling Jaya.

He was obviously referring to the Pakatan Rakyat’s ambitious plan to take over the federal government after claiming it has enough number of defectors from among the Barisan Nasional.

On the plan to buy the buildings, Azmin said the fund will be raised from the public and party members as he denied it was solicited from any particular individuals.

PKR moved into its current headquarters in Brickfields from Shah Alam about three years ago.

PKR’s ally, PAS has also moved its headquarters from Gombak to the heart of Kuala Lumpur last May in an attempt to put a face of modernity to the Islamic party’s image.

To sin by silence when we should protest makes cowards of people - Emily Cox

Siphoning EPF money

On 'Why should Valuecap borrow from EPF?' Syed Shahir Syed Mohamud: MTUC condemns the government's move to bail out Valuecap to support the local stock market using RM5 billion from EPF, as the provident fund is the custodian of the workers' money and not some sort of ‘automated teller machine' for the government.
If at all the EPF were to lend its money to the government, it has to be under the condition that there be transparency and accountability in the activities for which the money has been purposed. We want to know who is doing what with the money that belongs to the workers. This is the hard-earned money of the workers, their retirement plan. How is this bailout plan going to benefit the workers? We also question the reason for this bailout. If the economic fundamentals in Malaysia are strong and reserves sufficient as has been stated several times by the government, then why is there a need to offer so much money to the GLCs? Second Finance Minister Nor Mohamed Yakcop should prove how the EPF would profit from this loan. Bernama had reported that Nor had given the assurance that the loan given out by EPF would reap profits for the fund judging from Valuecap's past performance. But where is the paperwork and calculations to show that this move will benefit the EPF? MTUC is concerned that the loan might be mismanaged or misused and this, in turn, would affect the returns for the contributors. Mere assurances are not enough. We want to proof that this RM5 billion will not go down the drain. (The writer is president, MTUC). Sharyn: The government wants to use our pension money to prop up the Malaysian stock market which is the playing field of the rich people. If so, the government must ensure that the EPF account holders - who are predominantly the poor to average citizens of Malaysia - be guaranteed all of our pension money with a compound 8% growth (interest). It's so selfish and sick of the government to use the poor's pension money to help the rich to make more money with all the risks taken by the poor/average citizen. We can better use the RM% billion loans to Valuecap for our children's education, shelter, medical bills etc. Why not get those rich people to prop up the share market instead? Why should they park their money overseas and gamble with our EPF money instead? Kumar14: Who is behind this Valuecap organisation? Why suddenly, this separate entity is allowed to access funds from the EPF? Are they capable enough to handle it or is it just another desperate and blind move? It has been a very infamous trend where the people's funds are channeled to a company for investment purposes and suddenly POP! the funds disappear and there is nobody to be held responsible but a RM2 shell company. Charge who? Sue whom? The RM2 company (just a registered name)? We have seen this many times. People in power and with connections allow such things to go through and reap/rob the people's wealth and then blame it on organisations which actually don't exist. What if a lot of EPF funds are looted via such scams and nobody is to be pointed at? Where will the government get the funds to replenish the EPF? The people are very bored, disappointed, angry and frustrated at seeing all these dumb and unaccounted for measures being allowed by the government with lame excuses. Please, somebody verify the true purpose, integrity and capability of anybody attempting to use the people's fund.
