PETALING JAYA: Kuantan MP Fuziah Salleh was this evening named as PKR’s new Wanita chief, succeeding Haniza Talha who was sacked last month.

The announcement was made in a congratulatory message on the party’s Facebook page.

“Congratulations to Fuziah Salleh who was officially appointed as the PKR Wanita chief today,” the message read.

Fuziah thanked party president Anwar Ibrahim and the central leadership committee for entrusting her with the position. “It won’t be easy to rebuild following the betrayal, but it needs to be done,” she said, in a reference to former PKR leaders who have since teamed up with Perikatan Nasional.

Fuziah was a deputy minister in the Prime Minister’s Department with the Pakatan Harapan government which collapsed in February.

She had previously contested for the women’s wing leadership in the previous party polls.

Haniza’s membership in PKR was suspended on April 6 for holding a meeting with Mohamed Azmin Ali and former PKR vice-president Zuraida Kamaruddin at a hotel in Kuala Lumpur last February.

She was sacked from the party on June 29.
