KLANG: Wanita PKR chief Haniza Talha has been expelled from the party.

The decision to boot Haniza out of the party was made during its central leadership council meeting on Sunday (June 28).

Haniza, who is also Lembah Jaya assemblyman, was suspended from the party on April 6 for allegedly meeting former PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Azmin Ali and former vice president Zuraida Kamaruddin at a hotel on Feb 24.

Haniza told The Star last week that the meeting was not clandestine but was a gathering attended by many others.

Haniza was also an executive councillor in Mentri Besar Datuk Amirudin Shari's line-up in the Selangor state government.

With Haniza's expulsion, she automatically ceases to be a Selangor exco member.

The Selangor exco line-up currently has two vacancies.

The other exco position became vacant when Selangor Bersatu chief Datuk Rashid Asari lost the post after his party left Pakatan Harapan in February.

Former Wanita PKR deputy chief Dr Daroyah Alwi, who is Sementa assemblyman, had also left the party on June 13.

Following Haniza's expulsion, PKR is now left with only 17 seats out of the 21 seats it won in the 2018 general election.

Besides Haniza and Dr Daroyah, two others who are no longer with the party are Bukit Antarabangsa assemblyman Azmin and Gombak Setia assemblyman Hilman Idham.
