BERUAS PKR in Perak is threatening not to vote for Pakatan Harapan on polling day if the Pengkalan Baharu Perak state seat it is eyeing is given to Bersatu to contest in the 14th general election.

Branch chief Abul Jais Asfaq Ahmed said PKR wanted the seat as it had more influence and machinery in the area. The Pengkalan Baru state seat has over 18,000 voters and falls under the Beruas parliamentary seat.

  • If they (the PH leadership) does not give it to us, we will make sure that Barisan Nasional wins,” he told The Malaysian Insight. ABUL JAIS SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM THE PARTY WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT......

    • Right! These people are there for their political beliefs or own interests?! If you vote for a party that you don't believe in their policies and don't agree with their actions, then how can you want to make sure they win just because you don't get what you want?! I can understand if you said you won't help Bersatu in their campaign but to make sure your enemy wins is too much! Stop sulking like a spoilt child!

  • Just sack Jais and move on. This is why i don't trust some of PKR Bangang leaders. Including Azmin and his geng.

  • Proof that many Malaysians enter politics to amass power and wealth (through illegal corruption, cronyism, abuse of power, etc). When not chosen, they turn traitors. If they really want to serve the rakyat, why give a damn when one's services are not required. One can always find other things to do.
