SANDAKAN: A public spat between Selangor PKR and Parti Amanah leaders over the allocation of seats for the 14th general election has spilled over the South China Sea into Sabah.

And Hamzah Abdullah, the Parti Amanah Sabah chairman has lodged a report with the police over utterances allegedly made by Azmin Ali, the Selangor PKR Chief Minister.

Hamzah in a brief statement Saturday said he deemed the report, which was uploaded on a video as well as a news portal, to be malicious that degrades Parti Amanah’s leadership.

He claimed that the words which were allegedly uttered by Azmin meant that Parti Amanah leaders were liars and not credible.

His police report comes a day after Parti Amanah and DAP leaders questioned a claim by Azmin, who is also PKR deputy president, that 80% of seats in Selangor had already been decided, during four meetings attended by PH partners.

This was followed by Amanah and PKR denying that the meetings were about allocation of seats.

A strong statement by Izham Omar, the Selangor Amanah chief on Azmin later sparked a series of media statements by PKR leaders hitting out at Amanah.

Meanwhile, Dr Mahathir Mohamad, the opposition coalition’s chief, said he is confident that problems within PH, in particular Selangor, will be solved.

“There is no way that we can satisfy everyone in decisions that involve four parties,” he told a press conference after attending a youth forum at his Perdana Leadership Foundation on Saturday.
