PKR: No audit for Azmin, six others

PKR denies a FMT report which claimed that the deputy president and six other party MPs failed a KPI test.

(Free Malaysia Today) – PKR has claimed that none of the seven alleged “non-performing” MPs were audited and the party has no intention of dropping them as candidates for the next general election.

Responding to a report published in FMT yesterday, supreme council member Nik Mahmood Nik Hassan said the seven, including deputy president Azmin Ali, were not scrutinised.

“None of the MPs named in the FMT report was audited by my committee,” he said.

Nik Mahmood, who headed the special committee on the Key Performance Index (KPI), was not present at this morning’s press conference held at the party headquarters here.

His written statement was read out by PKR information chief Mur Manuty.

FMT had reported that Azmin, the Gombak MP and six others – Azan Ismail (Indera Mahkota), Kamarul Baharin Abbas (Telok Kemang), Abdullah Sani (Kuala Langat), Hee Loy Sian (PJ Selatan), Yusmadi Yusoff (Balik Pulau) and Loh Gwo-Burne (Kelana Jaya) – had allegedly failed the KPI test.

A party source had told FMT that if these KPI ratings were implemented, the seven MPs would not be allowed to contest in the next general election.

FMT also reported that Nik Mahmood had submitted the findings to party president Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail.

Confidential report

In his statement, Nik Mahmood, who accused FMT of “unethical journalism”, said the audit was done to secure public opinion on how to improve the party’s performance in certain constituencies.

He added that the report was confidential and only for the eyes of certain PKR leaders.
