PETALING JAYA: Former Vice President of PKR, Tian Chua describing the actions of PKR’s decision to fire him as contrary to the trend of reconciliation and inclusion in the current political atmosphere.
In fact, the former Member of Parliament for Batu was also upset with the actions taken by PKR Disciplinary Committee Chairman, Datin Dr. Tan Yee Kew for choosing to announce the dismissal to the media before informing those involved.
He described the act as very unprofessional which is regrettable and disrespectful.
“In the context of the scenario after the 15th General Election (GE15), the opposing parties have put aside their enmity during the election.
“Even old enemies including those who are alleged traitors have reconciled and pledged to cooperate in the formation of the Unity Government.
“However, without disputing the power of the leadership, harsh measures to apply the rules seem to be against the current of reconciliation and inclusion in the current political atmosphere,” he said in a statement today.
Yesterday, the media reported that PKR officially sacked Tian Chua and four other members after contesting the 15th General Election (GE15) and the 12th Sarawak State Election (PRN) without the party’s consent.
The other four who were sacked are Puah Chee Haur from the Parit Buntar PKR branch, Ahmad Tarmizi Mohd Ghazali (Gopeng), M Mohganan (Taiping), and Nur Khairunisa Abdullah (Sadong Jaya).
In the meantime, Tian Chua admitted that he was sad and disappointed with the decision taken by PKR after being involved in continuous struggle for more than two decades, especially in the reform movement.
“Throughout the course of this struggle, I have never once done anything against the principles or political objectives of the party. My conscience is clear.
“From the beginning I was ready to accept the consequences of contesting in the election without the blessing of the party leadership. I agree that the party needs to maintain organizational discipline,” he said.
However, he insisted, he is responsible for all his actions without blaming anyone.
“I joined the reform struggle since 1998 only with the aim of bringing democratic change to the country. Today I am proud to see that years of effort have not been in vain. I do not in the least regret every minute spent in this struggle.
“There are still many challenges ahead of us. I promised the supporters that I will not slow down the pace of activities to carry out reforms. I will not back down from fighting to defend the rights and well-being of the people,” he said. – MESSENGER
