Selangor PKR leader expected to quit party today

The Selangor assemblyman is said to be disappointed with PKR president Anwar Ibrahim for sidelining several of Azmin Ali’s supporters.

PETALING JAYA: Another PKR leader is expected to leave the party today.

A source told FMT the Selangor assemblyman’s decision to quit the party was due to her disappointment with the leadership of PKR president Anwar Ibrahim, who has sidelined several supporters of former deputy president Azmin Ali.

The decision to leave PKR is expected to negatively impact its women’s wing, which has already been affected by the suspension of its chief, Haniza Mohd Talha, in April for allegedly meeting two party leaders who have aligned themselves with the Perikatan Nasional (PN) government.

FMT also understands that the leader’s resignation will be followed by similar resignations by other divisional leaders, a move which will dent the party’s grassroots development.

The leader’s resignation will be the latest for PKR since Jugah Muyang, a former party vice-president and the MP for Lubok Antu, quit the party last week and threw his support behind Muhyiddin Yassin’s PN federal government.
