The Kajang state assemblyman said she would abide by the decision of the party on the matter. PKR had decided to have Wan Azizah replace Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim as the menteri besar.
Wan Azizah said the office of the menteri besar was a heavy responsibility and she considered it a test.
The PKR president spoke to reporters after a ‘tahlil’ session and donation of ‘zakat’ (tithes) to orphans, along with her husband Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim at the Permatang Nibong Mosque here.
Meanwhile, Anwar said PKR had decided to have Abdul Khalid replaced but he was staying on perhaps because he felt he had the support of certain quarters.
Asked about PAS’ support for Abdul Khalid, Anwar said he would have discussions with PAS leaders but added that there was no indication that PAS would leave the Pakatan Rakyat coalition.
PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang and PAS spiritual leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat have come to the defence of Abdul Khalid, saying he should remain in office until his current term expires.
