BUKIT MERTAJAM (June 30): Sungai Acheh assemblyman Zulkifli Ibrahim said he will not appeal against his sacking from PKR, a decision made by the party in a meeting on Sunday.
Zulkifli said until today, he had not received any official letter on his sacking from PKR and only knew about it through the media.
"I will issue a statement or hold a news conference on the matter after receiving the letter. I only want to stress here that I will not make any appeal against [the sacking] after receiving the letter,” he said when met by reporters here today.
The PKR central leadership council in its monthly meeting on Sunday agreed with the disciplinary board’s recommendation to sack five party members, including Zulkifli.
The four others were PKR Wanita chief Haniza Mohamed Talha; Permatang Pauh party branch deputy head Dr Afif Bahardin; Penang PKR Wanita chief Nur Zarina Zakaria; and Sabah PKR Wanita chief Rahimah Majid.
On his political direction after this, Zulkifli said he might follow the move made by Nibong Tebal Member of Parliament Datuk Dr Mansor Othman who joined Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu).
