The deja vu of the hopping of candidates is maddening. Are we not facing the same situation as that happened in Perak. V.Arumugam has resigned from his exco post but will remain as state assemblyman. Did not this same scene happened with Hee Haw from Jelapang and the PKR duo. No, they said, we are still with the party, but talks in the back-ground go on for the switching.
If Arumugam quits his exco position will be still not be tempted with money, and is he not vulnerable. It is hoped Arumugam will explain his move in full. Remember he was elected an an independent and his loyalty to PKR is suspect.
In any case I hope the Meteri Besar will not be caught napping and allow Najib to walk in.
PKR’s Arumugam quits Kedah exco seat (updated)
By EMBUN MAJID
ALOR SETAR: Kedah executive council member V.Arumugam has relinquished his post but will continue as Bukit Selambau state assemblyman, Kedah Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Azizan Abdul Razak announced Monday.
Arumugan was initially an independent who joined PKR after winning the Bukit Selambau state seat in the general election last March.
He was said to have informed PKR adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim of his decision at a discreet meeting in Ipoh on Sunday.
PKR state training bureau chairman Zambri Yusuf said Arumugam has made known his intention to Anwar at the meeting.
“Arumugam has decided to quit his position as an exco due to the mounting pressure on him and his family to defect to Barisan Nasional.”
Speculation has been rife for weeks that Arumugam intended relinquish his post due to the mounting pressure to stay in Pakatan Rakyat or defect to Barisan as an assemblyman.
