No way will people of Selangor allow the state turned into political bastion for a PKR family dynasty
Looks like Selangor Pakatan Rakyat (PR) fears losing the 13th General Election that they are tripping over themselves. The latest in what looks like an act of desperation, they are placing de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and president Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail to contest in the state.
Candidate issues in PKR have become the bone of contention, which is hard to hide from public knowledge.
Selangor Barisan Nasional (BN) Deputy Chief Datuk Seri Noh Omar saw the ambivalence and clash that pointed to a fallout too obvious following state PKR chairman Azmin Ali’s opposing the appointment of Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim as Menteri Besar should Pakatan Rakyat retain the state.
"Previously, Azmin who said Tan Sri Khalid only wanted to contest a parliamentary seat clearly showed his insistence in denying Khalid the MB’s seat…but today along comes Wan Azizah and Khalid says he can hold the post.
"If that’s the way it is, it looks like Khalid is being rejected by PKR…it’s because Azmin is a PKR deputy president…maybe Khalid is now caught in a dilemma.”
"So perhaps even Khalid does not want Azmin to be MB, and that’s the reason for him saying that Wan Azizah qualifies,” he said in Tanjung Karang Sunday night.
Noh saw Wan Azizah’s presence in Selangor as means to halt Azmin’s onslaught to the MB’s post.
According to Noh, Wan Azizah’s ‘migration’ to Selangor is as a political parasite rejected by her home ground constituents.
"The people of Selangor have to open their eyes...no way are we going to let Selangor be the bastion of Anwar’s family to contest.
We the people of Selangor do not wish to see the state turned into a place for Anwar’s family to grab at will.
"Isn’t there anymore qualified people in Selangor? Remember that all these years we developed Selangor from the sweat and toil of its people, but now that the state has reached the top, parasites are making a beeline for it,” he said.
