PKR State Chiefs are chosen by President Anwar - not democratically by the State membership...or even the PKR's Majlis Pimpinan Pusat? Party Constitution indicates the government we will have if we elect them?

PKR names new State Chiefs - and interestingly the power of choosing and deciding State Chiefs rest with the PRESIDENT(now Anwar Ibrahim) only - odd, when really should it not be democratically elected by the members of the State or maybe the Branch or Division leaders of the State.

It is the President - not the PKR Central Leadership Council(Majlis Pimpinan Pusat).

Note that some are elected by members... but MANY are chosen by the President of PKR.

Anwar, PKR - Danger of becoming Autocratic and not Democratic? President just too much power?

By this appointment of State Chiefs, it also affects the composition of the Central Leadership Council - as the State Chiefs are also in the Central Leadership Council.

This rather undemocratic elements in party constitution is worrisome when the party is part of the government or forms the government.
