Negri PKR faces split after four are axed, then reappointed

SEREMBAN: PKR is headed for a nasty split in Negri Sembilan after state assembly Deputy Speaker Datuk M. Ravi and three other assemblymen were axed from the party’s new state liaison committee line-up.

Besides the Sri Tanjung assemblyman, who was previously state deputy PKR chief, the others dropped were Ampangan assemblyman Datuk Dr Mohamad Rafie Ab Malek, Pilah assemblyman Mohamad Nazaruddin Sabtu – both exco members – and Chuah assemblyman Datuk Michael Yek.

The only state assemblyman retained in the new line-up besides Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Aminuddin Harun was Labu’s Datuk Ismail Ahmad, who was previously vice-chairman I.

PKR has six assemblymen in the state.

The new line-up was released by the office of the Mentri Besar, who is state PKR chief.

However, later in the day, Aminuddin released another list which saw the four being named as appointed members of the committee.

Seremban PKR chief Muhammad Nazri Kassim has been named Aminuddin’s deputy, while Port Dickson vice-chief Kenny Chiew and Kuala Pilah division chief Shahran Kaat were named as state vice-chairman I and II.

In September last year, Ravi, Mohamad Rafie, Ismail and Yek had claimed that many supporters were unhappy with Aminuddin’s performance.

Aminuddin later moved his membership from the Tampin division, which he had helmed, to Port Dickson.

He then challenged Ravi, the incumbent division chief, and deposed him.

Mohamad Rafie also lost in the Seremban division.
