BUTTERWORTH - The Penang PKR Youth and Wanita movements want Datuk Mohd Salleh Man of PAS to quit his Penang Islamic Religious Council president’s post, saying his party is no longer in the new opposition pact that makes up the state government.
Youth chief Asrol Sani Abdul Razak said the state government now known as Pakatan Harapan was made up of DAP, PKR and Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah).
“The Penang government and Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng no longer acknowledge PAS in the new coalition.
“Salleh’s position as MAIPP chairman is no longer valid and we suggest the post be made vacant when the term expires by year-end and be taken over by a PKR representative,” he told a press conference yesterday.
Asrol Sani added that PKR was the second biggest party in Pakatan Harapan in the state with 10 assemblymen.
“We also stress that any decision on Community Security and Development Committee (JKKK) positions and councillors be made through discussions among the three component parties of Pakatan Harapan.
“We have written to Lim, PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail and Penang Religious Affairs Committee chairman Abdul Malek Abul Kassim on the matter,” he
