Adakah disebabkan kerana dendam yang menjadikan Kerusi PKR dikosongkan ?
Ternyata PKR sebenarnya diasaskan oleh dendam kesumat yang telah pun menunjangidasar perjuangan mereka selama ini, memperlihatkan sifat mereka yang sebenar. Masihkah relatif perjuangan mereka untuk melindungi negara kita ?
Badrul says he’s victim of PKR revenge
January 19, 2011
KLANG, Jan 19 – Badrul Hisham Abdullah says the declaration that his Port Klang state seat is vacant is an act of revenge by his former party PKR.
Umno Online reported that he has contacted Umno Selangor to see how they would respond and was confident that the Election Commission (EC) will investigate the matter.
“I have faith in the fairness of the EC. I have really been abused.
“I am the victim of PKR’s vengeance,” he said.
Selangor Speaker Datuk Teng Chang Khim had declared the Port Klang state seat vacant effective January 16 after deciding that Badrul had been absent from assembly sittings for six months without leave.
Badrul claims to have sent a letter asking for leave in November when the last sitting was held due to health reasons.
“I have sent the letter asking for leave to receive traditional treatment. I don’t understand how they can count that I did not attend for six months,” he said.
He added that his assistant had recorded his attendance.
“You can check and see whether it is true or false that I did not attend for six months,” he said.
Badrul had claimed a few days ago that he attended the first day of the November sitting.
However, Teng today replied that he only received Badrul’s application for leave in December rather than before or during the sitting from November 8-15 and that his reasons were not concrete.
He also showed The Malaysian Insider the letter that Badrul sent, admitting that he had been absent for the entire duration of the November sitting.
Badrul had won the Port Klang seat as a PKR member in 2008 but left the following year before joining Umno in 2010.
Bernama reported that EC chairman Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof said that Teng should have informed the EC before declaring the vacancy.
He said that the EC would study the laws of Selangor and the Federal Constitution before deciding if there was a vacancy or not.
This follows from the constitutional crisis in Perak that began in 2009 due to Barisan Nasional’s takeover where the Federal Court ruled that the EC was the body that decided whether a seat was vacant.
However, the judgment also said that this did not apply in Johor, Negri Sembilan, Selangor and Terengganu as their constitutions provided that “a casual vacancy shall be filled within 60 days from the date on which it occurs.”
The apex court said the constitutions of these four states had intentionally omitted the establishment by the commission of a casual vacancy.
