Petaling Jaya city councillor Latheefa Koya resigned her position effective immediately.

In a letter dated today, Latheefa said that her position was untenable since Selangor Menteri Besar Khalid Ibrahim and the state exco are mulling her sacking.

Speculations that Latheefa would be booted has been rife since last week after allegations that she had criticised the PKR led state administration.

“I refer you to an internal e-mail regarding my concern on housing for the poor which I have sent to you and other top party leaders recently.

“The letter was unrelated to MBPJ. This has become a matter of public knowledge and speculation.

“Under the circumstances, my position as an MBPJ councillor has become untenable,” said Latheefa who is also PKR information chief.

On Friday, Khalid had confirmed that he and his exco were mulling her sacking. However, he said no decision was arrived at.
