(The ex-assemblymen of Penanti – why the conflicting reports on why he resigned? Image source: TheStar)
Seriously I am not sure what the folks at PKR are up to?
Using by-elections as a mean of quality control of its representatives? As means of preventing another party hopping by its member? Whatever the reason may be, forcing another by-election is already putting unnecessary strain on all resources.
Given the circumstances of the “resignation” of Mohammad Fairus as Penanti assemblyman, perhaps it is high time, PKR to be taught a lesson and handed over a crucial blow in the up-coming by election in Penanti.
Perhaps then PKR may focus more on building up loyalty and skills of its assemblymen instead of waiting and forcing by-elections to weed out the unwanted ones.
