KOTA BARU: Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) vice-president Zuraida Kamaruddin (pix) has confirmed she will be attending the party’s disciplinary board hearing on Feb 25.

Zuraida, who is Housing and Local Government Minister, said she will provide further clarification for each accusation the board had made of her.

“The disciplinary process must include a stage where we provide written explanations and after that, there must be a meeting to provide (further) clarifications.

“There could be some things they are not sure of and do not fully understand, so they want further clarifications from me, and it would also give me a chance to clarify things which are unclear to them,” she said.

Zuraida was speaking to reporters after launching an anti-litter campaign at Pasar Siti Khadijah, here today.

On Jan 18, Zuraida received a show-cause letter from the PKR disciplinary board, with 14 days to respond.

The letter touched on various issues including her speech at a dinner event on Dec 8 and expressing her dissatisfaction with the PKR National Congress.

Zuraida had also said she was taking leave from her post as PKR vice- president so as not to disrupt the investigation process by the party’s disciplinary board. - Bernama
