SHAH ALAM: Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim said he would be meeting all the state’s Members of Parliament (MPs) and assemblymen Thursday to counter speculation of crossovers in the state.He said this was necessary given the recent political development in neighbouring Perak, where the resignation of three assemblymen and the defection of a fourth saw the state falling to Barisan Nasional hands.
“We will also be discussing how the allocations we have for MPs and state assemblymen can best be used to benefit the people,” said Khalid when asked about Port Klang assemblyman Badrul Hisham Abdullah who is allegedly missing in action.Khalid said PKR member Badrul Hisham is also expected to attend the meeting at the state secretariat building.Elected representatives were not only responsible towards the party but also towards the electorate that voted for them, he noted.However, while there could be reasons for them to hop to another party, under the current circumstances, it is unlikely that this would happen, he said.
It is believed that Badrul Hisham’s constituents had complained about his absence from functions in his constituency and that it was difficult to get in touch with him.Speculation is rife that he may defect to another party because of this alleged lack of commitment to his constituents as well as alleged meetings with Umno leaders.
