KUALA LUMPUR: PKR Youth permanent chairman Muhamad Mizan Adli Mohd Nor has questioned the leadership on reasons for his sacking since it was made days before the party’s youth wing national congress.
Unhappy and shocked with the latest development, Mizan said he would refer his termination to the Registrar of Societies (RoS) for clarification.
Mizan also claimed that he was not told of his dismissal earlier or called to defend himself.
He said he only found out about his sacking through a letter sent to his email account.
“As the permanent chairman elected by the 2018 PKR Youth Congress, my position can only be terminated by the congress.
“I was elected legally when I was 35-years-old and based on wishes by the (wing’s) delegates at the (2018) congress.
“This raises the question of why I was sacked days before the national youth wing congress which will be held on Dec 6?
“As the (permanent) chairman who will be chairing the upcoming (wing) congress, I will refer this issue to the RoS,” he told the New Straits Times today.
In a letter dated Nov 27, PKR youth national secretary Ahmad Syukri Che Ab Razak listed several reasons for Mizan’s and his deputy Mohd Ramly Ahmad’s dismissal.
Syukri said the termination of both men from their positions was on the basis that they were above the age of 35, thus breaching the age of eligibility for the posts.
He also said that they had received more votes compared to the number of delegates present during last year’s PKR Youth National Convention, suggesting that a discrepancy had taken place
