SHAH ALAM: None of the 46 party supreme council members in the WhatsApp group chat concurred to pull out of Pakatan Rakyat (Pakatan) said Selangor PAS deputy commissioner Khalid Samad.
Khalid was commenting on the leaked WhatsApp message of PAS research centre operations director Dr Mohd Zuhdi Marzuki.
He said the leaked WhatsApp message was an attempt to tarnish PAS’ image and not a personal attack on Mohd Zuhdi because he is not even an elected representative.
He said that while he was also part of the WhatsApp group chat, the president, deputy president and secretary-general were not.
He added that the WhatsApp group chat was more to inform members of meetings and events and was never used as a platform to discuss confidential issues within PAS.
Khalid questioned why Mohd Zuhdi did not reveal this information saying, “I don’t understand why is he being defensive instead.
“No one in the group supported his scenario and even Dr Hatta Ramli’s (Kuala Krai MP) message saying so, could be seen from the print screen,” he explained.
Khalid added that the collaboration with Umno was never accepted by PAS and reiterated that the party would remain in Pakatan.
He hoped his explanation would help clear the air on the issue of Pakatan’s leadership in Selangor especially in regards to the Menteri Besar issue.
