PENANG – Gerakan which ended empty handed during the 14th General Election may receive 11 windfall seats after the 11 Members of Parliament (MPs) who quitted PKR were said to be joining the party.
However, the leaders and veterans of Gerakan were still keeping their mouths tightly shut and refused to comment about the possibility.
According to a report by Kwong Wah Yit Poh, as of Tuesday, Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali and his 10 comrades have yet to submit any membership form to Gerakan.
The President of Gerakan, Datuk Dominic Lau merely repeated that his party welcomes anyone who are ready to accept the direction and constitution of the party, besides fighting for the people.
The party’s veteran, Datuk Lum Weng Keong said that he hoped that Gerakan would only handle the membership affairs after the political turmoil calms down.
Another veteran of the party, former Penang Gerakan Chief, Datuk Teng Hock Nan also refused to comment as he had retired. -MalaysiaGazette
