Bersatu's rogue reps: S'gor Speaker says yet to receive notice to declare Selat Klang seat vacant

KLANG: Selangor Speaker Lau Weng San says he has not received any letter or notification to declare the Selat Klang state assembly seat vacant.

The incumbent for the seat is Datuk Abdul Rashid Asari, who is one of the seven elected Bersatu representatives who have thrown their support behind Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Abdul Rashid and the other six rogues, all MPs, were terminated from Bersatu on June 13.

The other six are Datuk Dr Suhaili Abdul Rahman (Labuan), Tanjung Karang MP Dr Zulkafperi Hanapi, Zahari Kechik (Jeli), Iskandar Dzulkarnain Abdul Khalid (Kuala Kangsar), Datuk Syed Abu Hussin Hafiz Syed Abdul Fasal (Bukit Gantang) and Mohd Azizi Abu Naim (Gua Musang).

According to Lau, in the event he receives a letter from Bersatu seeking to declare the Selat Klang seat vacant, he would consider the relevant circumstances before making a decision.

"I will adhere to the related legislation to make my decision.

"But as of now, I won't say much as I have yet to receive anything in regard to the matter," he added.

Earlier Wednesday, Kelantan Speaker Datuk Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah had declared the Nenggiri state seat vacant.
