PETALING JAYA (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Malaysian opposition coalition Pakatan Rakyat (PR) has vowed to strengthen understanding between its component parties as it seeks to continue the "Reformasi" (reform) agenda in states under their control.

In a joint statement released on Saturday, PR leaders said the coalition would strengthen its political cooperation in respect of the "joint policies it aims to implement".

"We have observed that the spirit of understanding and camaraderie within Pakatan is fundamental to our struggle to bring change and reforms in the political, social, and economic sphere of our beloved country," the statement said.

It comes at a time when cracks in the uneasy three-party coalition were exposed over whether Abdul Khalid Ibrahim would be replaced as Selangor state Menteri Besar.
