PKR leadership to discuss situation with state party representatives before deciding on their status by the end of the week, says party's communications director Fahmi Fadzil.

nurul-izzah-pkrKUALA LUMPUR: PKR may reverse its instruction to its political appointees in the Kelantan government to quit their posts, following reports that there have been no changes in the status quo.

Party vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar said the central leadership was discussing the issue with Kelantan PKR leaders in view of the continuing cooperation between PAS and PKR in the Selangor administration despite the Islamist party’s decision to sever political ties with them.

“We must look at the dynamics of the situation so that we can formulate a consistent principle in the states we jointly administer,” she told reporters in Kampung Kerinchi here today.

PKR issued a directive on May 17 to its members in Kelantan to quit their politically-appointed posts after PAS broke off relations with PKR.

Meanwhile, PKR communications director Fahmi Fadzil said a decision on the position of its appointees in the Kelantan administration would be made this week after hearing the views of party representatives from the state.

“Until then, PKR members appointed in Kelantan will remain in their posts but no new appointments will be made,” he said.

Kelantan Menteri Besar Ahmad Yakob said last Saturday that appointments allocated to PKR would remain.
