Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said there is a possibility that more elected representatives from Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) will leave the party as they have lost confidence in the struggles of their leader.
He said the decision of the State Assemblyman for Lunas, Mohd Radzhi Salleh, to quit the PKR showed that elected representatives from the party no longer cared about their position although they were members of the State Executive Council.
The Deputy Prime Minister said although he was shocked by Mohd Radzi’s sudden decision to leave the PKR, nonetheless, he had expected it to happen.
“Many PKR members and elected representatives no longer trusted (Datuk Seri) Anwar Ibrahim because they realise that the party’s struggles are only for meant one individual, that is Anwar,” he told reporters after handing out Social Security Organisation’s (Socso) disability benefits to 40 contributors, here.
Mohd Radzhi Sunday announced his decision to leave the party and become an independent state asssemblyman, saying that he had lost confidence in the party’s struggles.
He also claimed that 200 Padang Serai PKR members left the party as they had lost confidence in the party’s leadership which no longer followed the original objectives of the party’s formation.
Muhyiddin said the voters in Permatang Pasir should learn their lesson and should no longer be duped by Anwar’s struggles and stop supporting the opposition coalition which was facing more problems. — BERNAMA
