Delegasi tersebut disertai Rafizi sendiri merangkap MP Pandan, Exco Selangor, Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad; MP Bayan Baru, Sim Tze Tzin; MP Kelana Jaya, Wong Chen; Adun Semambu, Lee Chean Chung,  dan Exco Angkatan Muda, Melissa Sasidaran.

Mohamed Azmin denied allegations that the appointment of the Member of Parliament for Pandan, Rafizi Ramli, as the PKR Secretary General was an effort to control or suppress his power as the Chief Minister of Selangor.

“No. This was the party’s decision,” he said to the media after mingling and the Friday prayers at the Kampung Raja Uda Mosque here.
