PETALING JAYA: PKR members have congregated outside the party's headquarters here on Tuesday night, protesting the manner in which party polls have been conducted.

The protesters appear to be part of the pro-Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim faction, and are holding placards with anti-Azmin Ali sentiment.

Signs put up also call for disciplinary action to be taken against the deputy president Azmin, Secretary General Datuk Saifuddin Nasution, and Datuk Dr Tan Kee Keong.

PKR leaders were believed to be conducted a high-level political bureau meeting within the HQ. 

Earlier when party leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim arrived he was unhappy with the protesters and accused them of betraying the party.

PKR's incumbent vice-president Tian Chua met with the protesters telling them that the party would listen to their grievances and that there was no need for a public outcry.

The protesters continued, calling for Azmin to meet them. 

They also urged the party's election committee to take responsibility for alleged wrongdoings, saying it was performing "worse than the Election Commission".

PAC wants MAHB to solve complaints on KLIA2

Posted: 20 May 2014 06:44 AM PDT

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) is reminded to take action relating to complaints on problems such as water pools and sinking land that are reported in KL International Airport 2 (KLIA2).

Public Accounts Committee (PAC) chief Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed said MAHB, the KLIA2 operator, had admitted there were several 'inadequacies' in the airport before it started operations on May 2 during a meeting with PAC previously.

"When we (PAC) came here, they (MAHB) said the problems can be solved and improved and so KLIA2 is in operation.

"And now only two weeks of operation there are already issues," he told reporters after chairing the PAC meeting here.

MAHB said there was no safety risk on the apron taxiway.

"We have stated in the past that (land) settlement at localised spots comprising less than one per cent of the apron is anticipated due to differential settlement.

 "We are well prepared with a clear and workable engineering solution to address this issue," MAHB said in a statement.

The company said there was no impact to flight operations of any airlines as KLIA2 had ample aircraft parking bays to accommodate aircraft movements.

It said MAHB and Air Asia had daily meetings where operational and safety issues were discussed at length and explanations and solutions were provided. - Bernama
