KUANTAN: Newly-appointed Pahang Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) chief Datuk Fauzi Abdul Rahman yesterday rebutted rumours that the party was in a shambles after he took over the post from Zakaria Abdul Hamid recently.
Fauzi said he met the PKR state and divisional leaders on Saturday and all of them supported his appointment which was decided during a supreme council meeting recently.
Asked to comment on the opposition from the PKR Youth wing, Angkatan Muda Keadilan (AMK), Fauzi said this was normal in a democratic organisation.
Indera Mahkota member of parliament Azan Ismail of PKR said there was opposition from a few members of AMK initially, but all of them finally agreed to support Fauzi.
Fauzi, the former deputy information minister and ex-Kuantan member of parliament, left Umno to join PKR in July.
