PKR is clear about rejecting Melaka state election

Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) is adamant about its decision against holding the Melaka state election following the dissolution of the State Legislative Assembly.

PKR Information chief Datuk Seri Shamsul Iskandar Mohd Akin said it was not a good time for an election to be held when the country was still battling the Covid-19 pandemic.

“In this current pandemic situation, we are looking for a solution to what is happening in Melaka, we do not want a state election and at the same time, we do not agree with an Emergency…there must be a solution.

“That also does not stop us from filing a judicial review against the decision (dissolution of the state assembly) that was made hastily,” he told a press conference last night.

Present were Pengkalan Batu assemblyman Datuk Norhizam Hassan Baktee and Telok Mas assemblyman Datuk Noor Effandi Ahmad.
