I refer to the announcement today by Lunas assemblyman Mohd Radzhi Salleh to quit PKR and be an independent assemblyman in Kedah. However, there is no decision yet on whether his position as a Kedah State EXCO would be maintained.

In view of the current situation, it would be timely for Dato Seri Azizan Razak, Menteri Besar of Kedah to replace the Ex-PKR EXCO with a DAP assemblyman in Kedah.

I hope that the existence of the representative of DAP Kedah in the Kedah State EXCO will give opportunity to DAP Kedah to voice out their grouses in the state EXCO meeting. This would include allowing DAP Kedah to propose in the state EXCO and vote in favour of cancellation of the increase of Bumi Quota from 30% to 50% for certain housing development in Kedah and to resolve other issues which led to their so-called dramatic pull out from Pakatan Rakyat in Kedah in early July.
