‘We need young hardworking people to lead us, not former state chairs’

Pahang PKR division chiefs want young and hard working candidates as their state chapter chairman.

“We don’t want former leaders to be renominated for the position. We want a new face who can work hard to lead our party in the general election,” said a source to Harapan Daily.

This matter was also raised during their recent meeting with PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

The source also confirmed that Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari would vacate his position in Pahang. Amirudin is Selangor Menteri Besar and Selangor PKR chief as well as party vice president.

For the record, former leaders who have led Pahang PKR are Datuk Fauzi Abdul Rahman and Fuziah Salleh. Fuziah is currently a senator and deputy minister for domestic trade and cost of living.

“Prime Minister has given his word that he would restructure the state leadership council after the central leadership council meeting (MPP) this Sunday.

When asked about who do they see as a possible candidate to lead Pahang PKR, the source named Petaling Jaya MP Lee Chean Chung.

Lee, 43, is a former one term Semambu state assemblyman in Pahang.
