The recent decision by Lunas assemblyman Mohd Radzhi Salleh to quit PKR and be an independent assemblyman in Kedah had drawn a lot of criticism from leaders of Pakatan Rakyat.

It is highly inappropriate for Pakatan Rakyat leaders to condemn their ex-members, including making wild allegations against their ex-members, labelling them as liability and calling their decision to quit voluntarily as part of cleaning up process of their party. All this is only said after they left Pakatan Rakyat.

If Pakatan Rakyat leaders, including their de facto leader Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim, genuinely intend to weed out their assemblyperson and members that they think would be a liability and “nuisance in Pakatan Rakyat’s struggle for change”, they should do it immediately by sacking or suspending such members in accordance to their party constitution.
