PKR tidak pernah gesa Abdul Khalid undur, laporan Sin Chew salah...
Laporan akhbar, Sin Chew Jit Poh semalam yang melaporkan kononnya Majlis Pimpinan Pusat (MPP) Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) mahu Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim berundur daripada kerusi Menteri Besar (MB) Selangor tidak benar.
Setiausaha Agung PKR, Datuk Saifuddin Nasution(pix,bawah), berkata parti itu memandang serius kejadian salah lapor akhbar terbabit.
“Saya rujuk akhbar Sin Chew Jit Poh edisi petang semalam (22 Januari 2014) yang bertajuk ‘MPP PKR mahu Khalid undur, Selangor akan tukar MB’.
“PKR memandang serius isi kandungan dan anggapan dalam laporan terbabit. Bagaimanapun, saya jelaskan di sini bahawa mesyuarat MPP yang dimaksudkan dalam laporan itu tidak membuat keputusan yang bersetuju untuk menggantikan Abdul Khalid sebagai Menteri Besar Selangor,” katanya dalam sidang media yang diadakan di Ibu Pejabat PKR, di sini, hari ini.
Beliau berkata, mesyuarat yang berlangsung pada 15 Januari lalu hanya membincangkan beberapa isu termasuk fi lesen perniagaan di Selangor, penyusunan semula aset air Selangor di bawah seksyen 114 Akta Industri Perkhidmatan Air 2006 (WSIA), status pembinaan Langat 2, penternakan burung walit dan kenaikan elaun Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri (ADUN) dan Exco Selangor.

“Disebabkan MPP tidak membuat keputusan berkenaan isu MB Selangor, maka tidak timbul isu ADUN Bukit Antarabangsa, Mohamed Azmin Ali dilantik sebagai pengganti kepada Menteri Besar,” katanya.
Katanya, isu berkenaan Selangor sering dibincangkan dalam mesyuarat MPP PKR memandangkan negeri berkenaan satu-satunya yang diterjui PKR.
“Selangor satu-satunya negeri Menteri Besarnya daripada PKR. Jadi, sudah tentu MPP mengambil berat dan menunjukkan minat yang tinggi berhubung sebarang isu yang berlaku di Selangor termasuk mesyuarat tidak terkecuali, pada 15 Januari lalu,” katanya.- selangorku
Its DAP and PAS keeping Khalid in office...not PKR or Anwar...
'Khalid quits, Azmin takes over' report false...
The Selangor Menteri Besar Office has denied a report that MB Abdul Khalid Ibrahim has announced his resignation.
His press secretary Arfaeza Aziz told Malaysiakini that the MB is at present chairing a state executive council (exco) retreat.
"This is a wrong report," said Arfaeza, who is at the retreat being held at the Sime Darby Academy.
She was referring to a SMS alert by Sin Chew Daily, which directly quoted Abdul Khalid that he is resigning from his post and would be replaced by PKR deputy president Azmin Ali.
Abdul Khalid's political secretary Azman Abidin also denied the report.
"This is not true, you have to ask Sin Chew why it came out with that version," he said when contacted.
In a text message to Malaysiakini on the matter, state exco Elizabeth Wong said: “Absolute rubbish. I am here at the retreat.
"There was no such announcement. Sin Chew should check with us before running stories from unreliable and unverified sources."
The news was spread by the daily through its SMS news alert service at about 12.52pm, which also claimed that Khalid will likely be replaced by PKR deputy president Azmin Ali.
However, the daily issued another text message to subscribers claiming that: "There are new developments to the Selangor Menteri Besar's resignation, we are trying to obtain the latest on this".
By about 1.39pm, the daily issued a third text message stating: "It is been established that the earlier news alert on Khalid's resignation is untrue. Sin Chew Daily apologises to the menteri besar."
Rumours ahead of party polls
PKR secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution has earlier dismissed reports that the party’s central leadership had sought to replace Abdul Khalid with Azmin.
"The central executive committee (MPP) never made a decision to replace Abdul Khalid Ibrahim as Selangor MB as reported in the press," he told reporters at the PKR headquarters.
Saifuddin (left) said that although it was the first time that three or four PKR leaders have made a demand for sacking Abdul Khalid, they did not represent the majority decision.
"The others were silent or asked that the MB continue to be given a chance (to perform)," he said.
“Some voiced out that he can still take advice. If he has weaknesses, we can all help him.”
Saifuddin said the MPP meet on Jan 15 was chaired by Azmin and Abdul Khalid did not attend.
But he clarified that even the handful of Khalid's detractors had not asked for Azmin to become MB instead.
Observers note that these rumours could be related to the coming PKR polls in April.
Saifuddin said the Jan 15 MPP meet had focussed on Selangor issues such as business fee hike, restructuring water assets, swiftlet farming and pay hike for executives. He added that this was the normal agenda as Selangor was the main PKR-ran state.
He said PKR leaders were free to speak their mind at such MPP meets, drawing a comparison to a Parliamentary session where opposition MPs have also urged the prime minister to resign.
However, when asked if it upset PKR to see that not all had closed ranks behind MB Khalid, Saifuddin dismissed this, too.
'Normal party affair'
“That is a normal party affair... you cannot satisfy everyone. Humans have different viewpoints, so they want to express it, whether it’s liked or not. PKR is a very democratic party,” Saifuddin said.
He added that the MPP, being the highest decision-making body in the party, was the proper channel for such dissent.
For a change of MB to happen, Saifuddin further noted that not only must the MPP make the proposal but also it must be agreed to by other Pakatan party leaders from DAP and PAS.- malaysiakini
