Rizam: No PKR reps came to see me about Selangor MB

Rizam Ismail

KLANG: Selangor Opposition chief Rizam Ismail has dispelled talk that PKR representatives had come to see him to seek Umno’s help to oust Mentri Besar Amirudin Shari.

Rizam, who is Selangor Umno Youth chief, said it was not Barisan Nasional’s business to meddle in PKR’s internal problems.

“I can verify that no one approached me to seek any help,’’ he added.

However, Rizam claimed that he was privy to chatter among the elected representatives last week at the sidelines of the state legislative assembly meeting over their unhappiness with Amirudin.

“It was just people making empty talk. As for Barisan, we will just step back and watch as the PKR representatives continue bickering instead of serving its people,’’ said Rizam.

A PKR state assemblyman, who declined to be named, said there was talk among the elected representatives not aligned to Amirudin about the possibility of initiating a vote of no confidence against the mentri besar.

He claimed that assemblymen from other Pakatan Harapan parties had jumped on the bandwagon to moot a vote of no confidence against Amirudin after they heard he had allegedly suggested that DAP stalwart Ng Suee Lim be replaced as Selangor Speaker.

The assemblymen alleged that the suggestion was made after a proposed amendment to a Syariah enactment failed to be tabled during the state legislative assembly last week.He also said that a dinner gathering would be held tonight at a hotel in Shah Alam and

all state PKR MPs, assemblymen and party leaders, as well as division chiefs had been invited.
