More legal letters are issued by Messrs Bon and Associates, in the chronic case of sacking of MB Selangor Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim from PKR as a member which the party Central Leadership Council unanimously decided yesterday. This time, it is to PKR President Wan Azizah Wan Ismail.
Note that the same letter was also addressed to PKR Disciplinary Chairman Dato’ Dr Tan Kee Kwong.
PKR supposedly stands for ‘KeAdilan’, which was born from the sacking of Anwar Ibrahim as Deputy Prime Minister on 2 September 1998 and an UMNO member a day later, a decision made by UMNO Supreme Council. How different is that from what MPP PKR did to Khalid yesterday?
It is an obvious travesty against the concept ‘KeAdilan’ (Justice) which PKR was formed and the basis of its struggle. At least, Anwar Ibrahim was present and allowed to make his case when MT UMNO met on 3 September 1998 before they decided to sack him.
PKR members should question this sordid unproductive and now turning into a counter productive political drama, which include the attempt to install the totally inexperienced and leadership amateur Wan Azizah as MB Selangor, part of Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim delusional scheme of politicking to assume the helm at Putrajaya by next GE.
This ‘Kajang Move’ comes with the expectation that Wan Azizah is supposed to administer and manage the most wealthiest and populous state and largest economy in the nation. Never mind the fact that Wan Azizah personally admitted that she doesn’t mind to be a ‘puppet’.

Wan Azizah: I don’t mind being called a puppet
5 AUGUST 2014 @ 8:07 AM
SHAH ALAM: PKR president Datuk Seri Wan Azizah Wan Ismail said she does not mind being called a ‘puppet’ if the move to install her as the Selangor menteri besar is suc cessful.
She said that should she become MB, she would appoint her husband, de facto opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as her consultant and adviser.
Addressing party members at an event in Klang last night, Wan Azizah said the only reason she was roped in to become the MB was because Anwar had his opportunity ‘snatched away’ from him.
“We strategised the Kajang Move to make Anwar an assemblyman and later, the menteri besar but this was thwarted by the Barisan Nasional-led Federal government.
“As the Selangor MB post was always for Anwar in the first place, I would not hesitate to call on him as my consultant and advisor when I become the MB.”
She claimed that Anwar has the necessary experience to advise her as he was once appointed by Qatar as its economic advisor.
Wan Azizah also took a swipe at under-fire MB Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim, saying that he should realise that he is no longer involved in the corporate sector.
She said she and Khalid had not met since her candidacy was announced.
Meanwhile, PKR strategic director Rafizi Ramli, who was also present, said there was still a chance for Abdul Khalid to remain as MB if he met with the party leadership and committee to explain the accusations against him by the party’s secretary-general Datuk Saifuddin Nasution Ismail.
“We have little tolerance to allegations pertaining to integrity as we have always promised the people that we would be different and stand by our principles,” he said.
In a meeting on Sunday, the PKR leadership had discussed the sacking of Khalid from his party membership if he still refused to vacate his state post following the party’s re quest.
Rafizi said those who want Khalid to step down would not mind resorting to snap polls in order to make Wan Azizah the MB.
Supporters of the unholy-marriage-of-(in)convenience-between-backstabbing-strange-bedfellow and rakyat of Selangor must watch this development very closely.
