PETALING JAYA: There’s no basis for Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim to claim that his sacking is flawed or illegal as it is based on his defiance of PKR’s decision for him to step down as Selangor mentri besar, said party vice-president N. Surendran.
The charge against Khalid, he said, was clearly stated.
“It is a simple and clear charge. Khalid’s claim that the party is confused on the particulars of the allegation is sheer nonsense,” he said in a statement.
He said based on the above charge, the disciplinary board felt that he deserved to be sacked. It also found Khalid had defied the party and Pakatan Rakyat on other matters, as stated in an Aug 7 letter to him.
Surendran said it was absurd for Khalid to claim the party failed to specify which articles of the party constitution were breached.
He said as a former member of the party’s political bureau and leadership council, Khalid had sat in judgment of disciplinary cases and was now feigning ignorance.
He said Khalid also did not make a genuine request for his disciplinary hearing to be postponed to Aug 15.
“Khalid, having asked for the postponement in his letter of Aug 8, promptly issued a legal notice to the party the following day,” he said.
He said this in itself was a serious misconduct as under Clause 44.1 of the party constitution, party matters cannot be taken to court, adding that Khalid’s claims were a desperate attempt to distract attention from his failure to explain his defiance.
“His defiance has been public, blatant and intolerable,” said Surendran, adding that Khalid was given every opportunity to respond and explain his actions.
Surendran said Khalid should announce immediately that he will hand in his resignation to the Ruler at the first opportunity.
