PKR Reshuffle: ‘No Internal Conflict’ – Nik Nazmi

KUALA LUMPUR: The decision by PKR to reshuffle the State Leadership Council (MPN) in seven states, including Sarawak, Sabah, Pahang, Johor, Terengganu, Kelantan, and the Federal Territories, is not due to internal conflict.

PKR Vice President Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad stated that the move was based on the decision by President Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, who wanted to lighten the load for those involved, who also hold responsibilities as ministers.

“I was previously given the responsibility to lead in Kelantan and Terengganu…

“But now that we have taken the helm of the government after the 2022 general election (PRU), people like me, YB Rafizi (Ramli), YB Chang Lih Kang, including YB (Datuk Seri) Aminuddin Harun, who oversees Melaka, and YB Amirudin (Shari), who is responsible for Pahang…

“So the responsibilities have become quite heavy… (that’s why) the Prime Minister said ‘back to normal practice’ where the states (that were reshuffled) are led by local leaders.

“… for example, in Kelantan, Datuk Seri Supardi Md Noor (Tanah Merah Branch Chief) was assisted by Deputy Dr. Shamsudin Ghani (Pasir Puteh Branch Chief). Meanwhile, in Terengganu, PKR will be led by Ahmad Nazri Mohd Yusof (Kemaman Branch Chief) and his deputy, Datuk Dr. Mohd Johari Mohamad (Besut Branch Member),” he said here today.

He added that this reshuffle is not unusual and is a necessary step to allow the party to focus and provide space for new leadership.

He further explained that the reshuffle was not done arbitrarily and was carried out in stages, with Anwar himself meeting with branch chiefs in each state.

“Previously, he was only able to do it for the states of Perlis, Kedah, Penang, Perak, Melaka, and Negeri Sembilan (the first reshuffle). He didn’t have the chance to meet with other states yet, so he announced the first round earlier.

“Yesterday’s meeting followed the second round of meetings with other states, like the Federal Territories last Wednesday… I attended as the branch chief, so this is a normal process,” he added.
