The word going around is that PKR state assemblyman Badrul Hisham is quitting the party. A press conference is said to be scheduled this evening but the Selangor MB has apparently got wind of what's coming up.
Khalid Ibrahim has issued a statement asking Badrul, who has been absent from many PKR meetings and functions, to resign. He has said the Port Klang state assemblyman has not been performing. He said a delegation would also meet Bardul to convey the message personally to the elected representative, The Star Online reported.
Badrul's appearance at the Hari Raya Open House of Klang Umno chief Mazlynoor Abd Latif recently sparked speculations that he would be quitting PKR. There is also much talk that PKR secretary-general Sallehuddin Hashim is calling it a day despite his denial. He is said to have privately expressed his frustrations, which has been reported by at least one pro-PKR blogger. Yesterday, PKR vice-president Jeffrey Kitingan quit the party after a fall-out with the leadership over the appointment of the Sabah PKR head.
