PETALING JAYA: PKR vice president Zuraida Kamaruddin (pic) hit back at party communications director Fahmi Fadzil for not understanding the rationale behind her concerns over the sacking of two party members.
Zuraida said her argument was that the two members were sacked without observing proper procedures.
"Whether I attend meetings or not is irrelevant. My question is why proper procedure was not followed?" she said.
She said this in response to Fahmi's comment that Zuraida would have understood why the memberships of Zakaria Abd Hamid and Ismail Dulhadi were terminated if she regularly attended political bureau meetings.
"I am a vice president, not a judge. My attendance is immaterial. What is important is for justice to be served," she said.
Earlier, Zuraida had condemned the sacking as "selective persecution" and called for an immediate leadership reformation to save the party.
PKR disciplinary board chairman Datuk Ahmad Kassim said their memberships were terminated on suspicion of corruption after the party received a letter dated Oct 23 from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).
Zuraida questioned if MACC had really advised the party to take action against its members even before the case was proven in court.
"If the allegation is true, then the party should also take action against members implicated in fights, gangsterism activities, as well as against those demanding bribes during party polls, and many other offences that had been publicly highlighted," she said.
