JOHOR BARU: The state PKR leadership here has given Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim an ultimatum – resign as Mentri Besar within a week or face disciplinary action.
“We call on Khalid to voluntarily give up his position,” said PKR deputy secretary-general Steven Choong during a press conference at the Chinese Press Club here yesterday.
He claimed that many PKR divisions in Johor fully supported party president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail taking over from Khalid.
Choong, who is Tebrau PKR head, said Khalid needed to accept the party council’s choice.
Ayer Hitam PKR division chairman William Siau, who was also present at the conference, echoed Choong’s sentiment on Khalid’s resignation timeline.
In another development, Batu Pahat PKR deputy chairman Ronald Sia denied the truthfulness behind a statement by an alleged PKR member that his division was against Dr Wan Azizah becoming mentri besar.
“The statement from the unknown individual was aired on a local television station,” he said. “We don’t know who the person is.”
Another group calling for Khalid’s resignation consisted of new village heads in Selangor.
In a statement jointly issued by their headmen Lim Eng Wan, Lee Boon Huat and Sow Eng Wan, Khalid was said to be dismissive of problems that the new villages faced.
Lim is the headman of Kampung Baru Pasir Penambang in Tanjong Karang while Lee and Sow are headmen of Kuala Selangor’s new villages – Kampung Baru Sasaran Sg Buloh and Kampung Baru Bagan Sg Yu respectively.
