Ex-PKR Wanita chief says RM10 mil compensation demand not lawful

Former PKR Wanita chief Haniza Mohd Talha says she did not leave the party but was sacked.

IPOH: Former PKR Wanita chief Haniza Mohd Talha is confident that no action can be taken against her and 18 other ex-PKR elected representatives said to be facing a RM10 million compensation demand for defecting from the party.

The Lembah Jaya assemblyman said the demand was also ultra vires the Federal Constitution.

“Our lawyers are ready to respond,” she told reporters here today.

On Wednesday, PKR treasurer-general Lee Chean Chung said the party would be issuing letters of demand to claim RM10 million from each of the 19 MPs and assemblymen who left the party.

Haniza also said she did not leave the party but was sacked.

She said the allegation that she jumped ship was also not true because she was now an independent assemblyman.
