PETALING JAYA: PKR has sacked its Sabah vice-chief and Inanam assemblyman Kenny Chua after he was spotted with former chief minister Musa Aman, who claimed yesterday he had the majority to form a new state government.
The party’s disciplinary committee chairman, Ahmad Kasim, said the decision to give Chua the boot was made after it confirmed his presence in a bloc “attempting to topple the Sabah government”.
“Taking into account PKR’s stand that the betrayal of the people’s mandate should not be allowed to take place, the disciplinary board is sacking Kenny Chua Teck Ho with immediate effect,” he said in a statement.
Chua’s sacking comes a day after PKR vowed to take action against him for supporting Musa in his bid to form a new state government.
He was among the assemblymen who attended Musa’s press conference yesterday afternoon to announce that he had a simple majority to form a new government after receiving sufficient support from assemblymen in the state.
Musa was also reported to have said he had received statutory declarations from the assemblymen backing the new coalition he would lead.
Meanwhile, DAP announced the sacking of its nominated assemblyman in Sabah, Ronnie Loh, for supporting Musa.
“The termination takes immediate effect.
“He is also hereby removed from all his positions in the party,” said DAP disciplinary committee chairman Chong Chieng Jen in a statement.
Chong urged all members to “disassociate themselves” from Loh.
