"There now seems to be a concerted campaign to portray PKR as a party mired in deep internal trouble and I hope Malaysiakini which has been the leading new media over the last decade can exercise better journalism and avoid being manipulated towards that end." - Lateefa Koya, PKR's Info chief, in a Letter of Protest to Malaysiakini
Read the full letter here.
NST has the report H E R E.
No way in Hell ... First, Zaid Ibrahim, PKR's biggest Umno catch (after Anwar Ibrahim and Azmin Ali, of course) decided to go on two months' leave.
Then, Salehuddin Hashim is said to have quit the secretary-general post of the party.
Now, Jeffrey Kitingan said he quits as VP citing loss of confidence in the party's leadership.
To tell you the truth, some of the things I learned of party politics within PKR I get from Barisan Rakyat bloggers here and here who are very close to Zaid, especially. Nothing like getting it from the insiders. Still, Haris, I doubt that Anwar really said those words: "No way in hell will I have Jeffrey as chief".
When I want to know the nuances of Umno's internal politics, I read pro-Umno bloggers like Big Dog ad Voice. But when I want an outsider's point of view on blogosphere, I'll check out Reme's. His latest posting, PAS retak, PKR lagi teruk! is brutal.
