Khalid Ibrahim: Possible PKR split "unsurprising"
The former Selangor Mentri Besar believed this would happen because the party was not properly managed.
“There have been too many complaints by party members that have not been dealt with in a fair, transparent and holistic way,” he said in a Facebook posting on Wednesday.
He said the actions of the parties in Pakatan recently failed to provide a conducive and inclusive avenue.
“I prefer looking at these things from the outside and am not be directly involved in their efforts to create this third force,” he said.
Khalid said he would focus his energy and give insights on restoring the country’s economy which is facing internal and external pressures,” he said.
He added that he was still waiting for the decision on his complaint with the Registrar of Societies (ROS) on his illegal removal from PKR.
Khalid has claimed that his removal was not done in accordance with the party constitution.
Talk of a split in PKR is rife after supporters of deputy president Azmin Ali have supposedly formed an alliance with those who were unhappy with president Dr Wan Azizah's impromptu announcement of Pakatan Harapan's formation.
A petition was sent in by 25 party members demanding a Supreme Council meeting to discuss Dr Wan Azizah's announcement.
The petition was signed by Batu MP Tian Chua, Padang Serai MP N.Surendran, Petaling Jaya Selatan MP Lee Hoy Sian, Ampang MP Zuraida Kamaruddin, Sri Muda assemblyman Shuhaimi Shafiei, Kampung Medan assemblyman Haniza Talha, Bukit Lanjan assemblyman Elizabeth Wong, Kota Anggerik assemblyman Dr Yaakob Sapari and Batu Caves assemblyman Amirudin Shari.
