Meru state assemblyman leaves Amanah for PKR

KLANG: Meru assemblyman Mohd Fakhrulrazi Mohd Mokhtar (pic) has confirmed that he has left Parti Amanah Negara for PKR.

However, he declined to state his reasons for now, adding that he would issue a statement on why he made the move.

“There is a lot of misunderstanding and confusion going around now and I don’t want to add more to it.

“I will issue my statement soon,” he said when contacted yesterday.

The Meru state seat falls under the Kapar parliamentary constituency.

Kapar MP Datuk Abdullah Sani Abdul Hamid said Mohd Fakhrulrazi had already submitted his application to join PKR.

“But the PKR leadership has yet to discuss the matter,” he said.

He believes Mohd Fakhrulrazi has also reached out to the Amanah leadership to find out if there were any implications awaiting him for his decision to leave the party.

Abdullah Sani said he did not see anything wrong in the move as Mohd Fakhrulrazi would still be in Pakatan Harapan.

“He is not leaving Pakatan and even if he is leaving Amanah, he is going to another component party,” he said.

Selangor Amanah secretary Kamarul Hisham Yeop Hashim confirmed Mohd Fakhrulrazi’s departure from the party in a statement yesterday.

Before joining Amanah in late 2015, Mohd Fakhrulrazi was the PAS Youth treasurer.

His departure from Selangor Amanah leaves the party with only six seats in the state legislative assembly as opposed to the eight seats it had won in the last general election.

The party also sacked Sabak assemblyman Ahmad Mustain Othman in July for allegedly breaching the party constitution.
