Zuraida replies to show-cause letter


PKR vice-president Zuraida Kamaruddin (picture) today responded to the show-cause notice issued to her by the party’s disciplinary board on claims of disciplinary misconduct.

Zuraida’s political secretary Nor Hizwan Ahmad submitted the reply letter to the disciplinary board at the PKR headquarters here at 12.45pm.

According to Nor Hizwan he was representing Zuraida, as the minister was required to attend a Cabinet meeting in Putrajaya today.

“Zuraida received the notice (show-cause letter) on Jan 15 and the reply deadline is today.

“We had to look at the charges levelled against her carefully. As such it took quite some time for Zuraida to respond to the letter,” he told reporters after submitting the letter.

Nor Hizwan said Zuraida has now left it to PKR Disciplinary Board chairman Datuk Ahmad Kassim to go through her explanation before making any decision.

PKR secretary-general Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail on Jan 18 reported that PKR had issued a show cause letter to Zuraida for alleged disciplinary misconduct.
