Sígor PKR ticks off MBís secretary for attacking Azmin Ali
BY TEH ENG HOCK
SHAH ALAM: The Selangor PKR leadership has taken Selangor Mentri Besar's political secretary Faekah Husin to task for attacking PKR deputy president Azmin Ali.
Selangor PKR deputy chairman Zuraida Kamaruddin said Faekah's comments were unnecessary, and could have been made "more positive" if she could have taken the trouble to communicate with Azmin over the matter.
"As far as Azmin in concerned, time and again, he had openly shown his full support for Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim as the Selangor Mentri Besar.
"Khalid has done a fantastic job of 360 degrees turnaround from the Barisan Nasional-style government. Be it in his ceramah, articles and as in his recent parliament debates, Khalid has time and again highlighted as an excellent Mentri Besar for Pakatan Rakyat, much to the envy of the Barisan government," she said in a statement.
She added that Faekah had "unwisely misinterpreted" Azmin's recent comment on Khalid, and should have finished reading the article in good faith.
Zuraida was referring to an article in Sinar Harian, where Azmin was quoted saying that Khalid may be made a federal minister if Pakatan wins Putrajaya in the 13th general election, thus implying that Selangor will have a new Mentri Besar.
"Our advice to Faekah is to break her wall of communication with the party leaders because, until today, she has yet to communicate with most state and party national leaders on party and state matters.
"As an effective political secretary, Faekah should concentrate to improve the political relationship between the Mentri Besar and party leaders, and not cause instability by unnecessarily jumping the gun," she said.
