There are no plans to bring former IGP Musa Hassan into the PKR fold just yet. PKR secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution Ismail said that when someone ‘important’ decides to join the party, the application is given special attention.

“Approval of applications is done on a monthly basis. When we have distinguished names of ‘big people’, of course we take note of it,” he said.

There has been some talk that Musa is leaning towards the opposition with his constant attacks on his former employers – the Barisan Nasional government.

Yesterday Musa at a press conference accused Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein of interfering with police affairs.

Musa is the patron of a new NGO called Malaysian Crime Watch Task Force (MyWatch).

When asked if Anwar Ibrahim would be the stumbling block if Musa wants to join PKR, Saifuddin said the decision is made collectively.

“When there are applications made by big names, the decision to approve them is made by the party leadership,” he said.

He explained that usually the supreme council members will come up with the decision. He further stated that it is definitely not done by an individual.
