PETALING JAYA: Fiery PKR orator Badrul Hisham Shahrin (pic) has been suspended from the party with immediate effect following his media outbursts, which criticised the party's election process.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, the PKR disciplinary board chairman Datuk Dr Tan Kee Kwong said that Badrul who is better known as Chegubard has also been issued show-cause letter as why he should not be sacked from the party.

"He made a press statement claiming the election process is dirty and not transparent. "He also publicly claimed that the party's disciplinary board are agents to Azmin Ali on May 12, which was published, in several online portals,” he said.

Dr Tan said that Chegubard's membership has been suspended with immediate effect until investigations into the matter have been completed.

Meanwhile, PKR has sacked one member and suspended another for six months for breaking campaign rules in the problem-riddled party election.

In addition, the PKR disciplinary board has also reinstated five others members following hearings conducted on Saturday.
