Former PKR member Zuraida Kamaruddin has scoffed at a RM10 million suit announced by the party against her today, calling it “absurd”, “utterly frivolous” and a “cheap publicity stunt”.

“This is just a waste of the court’s time. Any law student could have explained to the current PKR leadership that the court will not enforce any agreement that breaches the Federal Constitution,” said Zuraida, the housing and local government minister who quit the party with about a dozen other leaders during the political crisis in February.

PKR today announced the suit against Zuraida, the first in a series of legal proceedings against its former MPs who switched loyalties to Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin’s Perikatan Nasional government.

Zuraida, who retained her Ampang seat in last election, said the law allows elected representatives to leave their political parties but that she was sacked for doing so.

“I left PKR because it no longer focused on the welfare of the people, but on the prime ministerial ambitions of one man.

“Their clamour to seize the PM’s position could be seen by the whole country during the 22 months of PH rule and now in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

“To have stayed on in such a thoughtless party would have been against my conscience. As for this utterly frivolous suit against me, bring it on,” she said.
