SHAH ALAM: Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim (pic) has sent a notification through his lawyer to PKR objecting the leadership council meeting set to be held at 4pm Saturday.
The letter from Khalid's lawyer Edmond Bon was delivered to PKR disciplinary council chairman Datuk Dr Tan Kee Kwong this morning.
Khalid had stated in the letter that the leadership council meeting should not be held as he has not attended the disciplinary board hearing.
The meeting had been called to discuss Khalid's status as the Mentri Besar.
The PKR Disciplinary Committee had issued Khalid a show cause letter to explain himself on a number of issues namely the state water restructuring deal, the revised allowance for MB, increased taxes for business licenses, the Bank Islam loan, and the proposed Kinrara-Damansara Expressway (Kidex).
They had given Khalid until Saturday noon to attend a disciplinary hearing. In a letter to the committee on Friday, Khalid wanted the hearing to be postponed to Aug 15.
Meanwhile Khalid's former political secretary Faekah Husin said the board cannot discuss the matter as some of the leaders attending the meeting had vested interests in the Mentri Besar's removal.
Faekah said that Khalid's letter also wanted Tan to clarify the allegations against Khalid and also five other issues raised.
