PKR vice-president Tian Chua has been assaulted by party members and supporters outside the PKR headquarters in Petaling Jaya this afternoon following a central leadership meeting.
Tian Chua was punched and had bottles thrown at him as security personnel struggled to get him into a vehicle.
PKR vice-president Tian Chua was hit with bottles, blows and shouts of “Pengkhianat!” (Traitor) and “Anjing!” (Dog) by an angry crowd of supporters while leaving PKR’s Central Leadership Council (MPP) meeting here today.
Selangor Menteri Besar Amirudin Shari, former deputy PKR Youth chief Dr Afif Bahardin and Port Klang assemblyman Azmizam Zaman Huri were also heckled while leaving PKR’s headquarters here and rushing into their cars.
The group is aligned to the party’s sacked deputy president Mohamed Azmin Ali, who had held a series of meetings with former opposition parties to form a new coalition last Sunday, thus blocking PKR president Anwar Ibrahim from succeeding Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
The week-long power struggle which ensued after Mahathir resigned on Monday officially ended this morning when Muhyiddin Yassin was sworn in by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah as Malaysia’s 8th prime minister.
“They are traitors and we cannot forgive them!” an Otai Reformasi member from Kuantan told FMT.
“The Selangor MB’s loyalty is doubtful. If he has already failed this test, how can we trust him?
“Of course, we deserve to be angry. We have sacrificed a lot over the past 20 years.
“We don’t feel it (Muhyiddin’s appointment) is lawful. But we are not going to argue with the Agong’s decision,” he added.
