Azmin Ali, Zuraida sacked from PKR


PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali and its vice-president, Zuraida Kamaruddin, have been sacked from the party with immediate effect today.

PKR secretary-general Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail announced this after a special meeting of the the party’s Central Leadership Council at the PKR headquarters moments ago.

Saifuddin Nasution said the decision was made based on consensus by taking into account the latest political development , including of their meeting with the opposition MPs yesterday.

“The MPP agreed that there was a display of open betrayal by a few characters who became masterminds, who were in clear conflict with the position of the party with matters concerning the position of the (next) prime minister.

“And as a result of the open betrayal, it has created a situation that could undermine the Pakatan Harapan government.

“It also has an impact on the economy and politics as we can see today, with the Ringgit dropping in value,” Saifuddin Nasution told a press conference after the meeting.

He said the party had also identified the “assistants” of the two master-minds  (Azmin and Zuraida)  and they would be issued with show-cause letters.
