A former aide of PKR women chief Zuraida Kamaruddin had allegedly written a letter to the PAS president, urging the latter to pressure PKR president Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail to step down.

A handwritten letter published on Malaysia Today website yesterday suggests that there is a move in PKR to oust its supremo Anwar Ibrahim’s family before the general election.
Claiming to be PKR women chief Zuraida Kamaruddin’s former political secretary, Mohd Fareez Kamal Intidzam, 24, urged PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang to save the opposition pact from PKR president Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail and its vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar.
Fareez alleged that Wan Azizah and Nurul wanted to destroy his career as he was “close” to Anwar.
He also claimed to be working for Anwar as his private secretary for international affairs since 2008.
“The duo wants to eliminate anyone close to Anwar as they are jealous. As PAS president, only you (Hadi) can pressure Wan Azizah to quit her post before the 13th general election,” he said.
He also said that Wan Azizah’s departure would not make much difference because the former Permatang Pauh MP cannot contest for a parliamentary seat in the coming election anyway.
“What’s the point being a party president when you can’t contest for a parliamentary seat? This is an embarassment to Pakatan Rakyat,” said Fareez.
The former aide to Zuraida also heaped praises on PKR deputy president Azmin Ali and called him a man of calibre.
Being a capable leader, Fareez said that Azmin would ensure Pakatan’s victory in the general election.
“He’s a wholesome leader, unlike Wan Azizah who is just a proxy and pretends to not know anything happening around her,” he said.
A copy of the letter was sent to DAP chairman Karpal Singh.
‘Tired of accusations’
Meanwhile, a source close to Zuraida confirmed that Fareez used to work for the MP but quit before 2008.
However, the source could not recall when Fareez left his post.
“I only know him professionally. In terms of work, Fareez can deliver as instructed,” said the source.
