PUTRAJAYA, March 1 — Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim accused Datuk Seri Najib Razak and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor of being behind the latest resignations from PKR.
“It’s a difficult for me to understand if there’s no other circumstances, knowing that the Najib-Rosmah strategy is to try to buy people as much as possible,” the de facto PKR leader told reporters outside the Federal Court here.
Nibong Tebal MP Tan Tee Beng announced he was leaving PKR today, days after he faced a party disciplinary board over his criticisms against deputy president Senator Dr Syed Husin Ali and Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.
Last night, former Penang Deputy Chief Minister I Mohd Fairus Khairuddin quit PKR to join Umno while former PKR secretary-general Datuk Salehuddin Hashim confirmed resigning from the party two weeks ago.
Salehuddin was seen with Tan today when the latter announced his resignation.
Another Anwar’s ally, Bayan Baru MP Datuk Seri Zahrain Hashim, quit the party two weeks ago to become an independent MP after he cited a lack of faith in the party leadership.
