SHAH ALAM, 2 Sept 2009: The fate of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR)’s Port Klang assemblyperson Badrul Hisham Abdullah will be known after Hari Raya Aidilfitri, said Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim.
He said Badrul Hisham had been served with a show cause letter and needed to respond in 14 days on his inability to serve effectively as a state assemblyperson.
Abdul Khalid declined to answer when asked if Badrul Hisham would have disciplinary action taken against him or if he would be asked to vacate his seat.
Speaking to reporters after chairing a state executive council meeting here today, he said: “A decision will be made after taking into account a discussion between Badrul Hisham and state assembly speaker, Teng Chang Khim.”
Abdul Khalid said Badrul Hisham was not well now and could not attend the event where the Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, broke fast with the people at a mosque in Pandamaran last week.
“Badrul still receives his salary and allowance even though he is helped by state assembly[person] friends in his duties as an elected representative,” Khalid said. — Bernama
