PETALING JAYA: Selangor PAS Youth has reiterated its support for Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim (pic) to continue as Selangor Mentri Besar and urged PKR not to gamble away Selangorians' trust in Pakatan Rakyat.
In a statement on Thursday morning, its youth chief Syarhan Humaizi Abdul Halim concurred with Selangor PAS Commissioner Iskandar Samad who was against PKR’s decision to replace Khalid with PKR president and Kajang assemblyman Datuk Seri Wan Azizah Wan Ismail.
"This shows the maturity and responsibility of Selangor PAS to make sure the state administration is stable while taking into account that the main focus of Pakatan is the rakyat (people),” he said.
Syarhan Humaizi added that no one could deny the excellence of Khalid in administrating the state that led to Pakatan’s victory in the last general election.
"Any move to replace the Mentri Besar has to be done carefully with the mutual agreement of Pakatan. It also has to take into account the sentiment of every party involved in regards with the state’s enactment including the palace," he said.
"Trying to justify that the move will stabilise PKR is not the best excuse in gambling away the rakyat’s trust in Pakatan in Selangor and the country."
Syarhan Humaizi also reminded those in the "movement" to oust Khalid not to be hasty as it could be a move that could prove to be "penny wise but pound foolish".
