2 PKR councillors quit party

Selayang municipal councillor Jess Choy and Shah Alam municipal councillor Shoba Selvarajoo.

PETALING JAYA: Two PKR councillors have quit the party with immediate effect following the inclusion of their names on a list of suspended members.

Jess Choy and Shoba Selvarajoo, who is a PKR women’s exco, also claimed to have lost confidence in PKR president Anwar Ibrahim and his leadership, citing the “embarrassing” party polls.

Last year’s party election was plagued by several controversies, including a brawl, allegations of corruption and sabotage as well as technical glitches.

The polls also saw the party split between two camps, with one faction siding with Anwar and the other with then-deputy president Mohamed Azmin Ali.

“I was affected by the circulation of a list of suspended members which included my name,” Choy and Shoba said in similar but separate Facebook posts yesterday.

“The time has come for a decision to be made.”

Choy is a Selayang municipal councillor while Shoba is a Shah Alam municipal councillor.
