SHAH ALAM – PKR president Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail acknowledged on Monday that she was hurt by the statement by PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang questioning her ability and capability to serve as a menteri besar.
“I was a little hurt by the personal attack against me although I respect the opinion of Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang pertaining to my ability and capability.
“However, I am not angry and I accept it as a criticism to improve myself,” she said in a statement.
She advised all quarters not to respond to Abdul Hadi’s statement.
“I express thanks to Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang and his family for their assistance rendered to me since 1999,” she said.
Last Friday, Abdul Hadi said PAS had not nominated Dr Wan Azizah for the post of Selangor menteri besar because the Kajang assemblyman was incapable of holding the post.
Abdul Hadi had stated that PAS’ rejection of Dr Wan Azizah had nothing to do with gender. – Bernama
