Zamil said he spoke as a citizen and former politician when he questioned Anwar.
KUALA LUMPUR: Parti Kesejahteraan Insan Tanah Air (KITA) president Zamil Ibrahim said Tian Chua is diverting the subject on Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s alleged sexual misconduct by questioning his (Zamil's) credibility.
Speaking to The Mole, Zamil said: “I had expected him (Tian Chua) to shift the issue on Anwar's leader moral misconduct and make it about me.’’
“What Tian Chua did is not right. He should have answered the question relating to allegations of Anwar's affairs and sexual misconduct.”
Prior to this, Tian Chua who is Parti Keadilan Rakyat vice president told The Mole that Zamil alongside Datuk Zaid Ibrahim must work out on who is KITA’s actual president before commenting on other issues.
Tian Chua said this when asked to comment on Zamil’s statement in a news report questioning Anwar as to why he only sued Senator Datuk S.Nallakaruppan for calling him a bisexual and not for the allegations of his affair with Shamsidar Taharin, the wife of PKR’s deputy president Azmin Ali.
Zamil who is former Merbok MP said: “I was only commenting on the issue as a citizen and former politician.’’
“Many people in my state, especially those from the villages have the perception that Anwar had sued Nallakaruppan not only for the bisexual remark but also for allegation of his affair.’’
Prior to this Zamil was reported to have said that Anwar had chosen to keep quiet on the issue while most Pakatan Rakyat supporters seemed to believe the opposition leader has taken legal action against Nallakaruppan, for making allegations that the former had an affair with Azmin’s wife.
On Tian Chua’s remarks questioning his status in KITA, Zamil said he is confident that he will be appointed as the party’s leader.
Zamil who is KITA’s Kedah chief added, “The Registrar of Societies (R0S) contacted me two weeks ago to validate KITA’s application on the party’s new leadership after Zaid had spoken about the party’s dissolution in February.”
The party had then, appointed Zamil as its new president at the party’s extraordinary general meeting (EGM).
Asked when he is expecting a decision from ROS, he said, “I think it will be in the near future, God willing it will be soon.”
A blog post at suarapakatanrakyat on April 18 reported that Anwar will not sue Nallakaruppan, who is Malaysian Indian United Party (MIUP) president but he will not drop the defamation suit against Utusan Malaysia, so he could focus on the next general elections.
