Twenty-strong demo calls for stop to PKR elections

SABAK BERNAM, 20 Nov —Twenty Parti Keadilan Rakyat members here held a demonstration calling on their branch to stop voting in the central leadership council elections.

They also again protested against the outcome of the branch elections held last month, alleging that the voting process was confusing and irregular.

Candidate for branch chief Abdul Kadir Abdul Rashid, who lost to Dr Badrulamin Bahron, said the process was not transparent and the voting unfairly conducted.

“We want the voting for the central leadership council to be stopped because the election of the head of the Sabak Bernam branch is invalid,” he said.

The branch elections on October 2 was marred by fighting and the throwing of chairs.

Despite the demonstration, voting at the branch in the central leadership council elections went ahead as scheduled.
