Perak PKR duo confirmed defecting to Umno

The much awaited answer of the two Perak PKR state executive councilors status are still hanging and so far one had confirmed leaving the party to go over to Umno. What about the other guy? There’s still no news on him as he is still missing.

This situation leaves the Perak state government in-balance due to its majority decreasing and Umno got its number increased instead should the other decides to join Umno as well.

A confirmed source had also mentioned that Umno leaders promised via its dominated federal government to reverse the corruption charges onto the PKR duo if they agree to leave PKR and join Umno.

If the PKR duo who is currently facing corruption charges on a proposed housing development, decides to cleanse themselves by joining Umno who promised to drop the charges, the Perak Pakatan Rakyat leadership will have no other choice but to seek a new mandate from the people by calling for a fresh state election as soon as possible.

With the departure of the PKR duo, the Perak Pakatan Rakyat could not function properly as all its administration activities will come into blockade with Umno and BN current have an increase bargaining power with the two crossovers. That means Umno and BN will block whatever implementation the state government wishes to carry out in order to continue destabilizing the administration and grab the state powers by all means.

As such, no other choice. The Perak Pakatan Rakyat must call for a fresh election to seek a fresh mandate from the people.
