Phahrolrazi Zawawi said that appealing against the decision would mean that he had accepted Amanah’s reason for dismissing him in the first place.

Former Kedah Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah) chief Datuk Phahrolrazi Zawawi stressed that he wouldn’t be challenging the party’s decision to sack him.
“I will not be disputing my dismissal as I am of the opinion that it was not logical for me to be sacked by the party. If I were to plead my case then it would be akin to me accepting the party’s decision to sack me,” the Alor Mengkudu assemblyman told TRP when contacted today.
He said that his current focus is to help Pakatan Harapan (PH) candidates win their respective seats in the upcoming 19 November general election (GE15).
“I will continue to back PH candidates. I’ve yet to think of my own direction at the moment,” he said when asked whether he would be joining another political party following his sacking from Amanah.
Yesterday, Amanah announced Phahrolrazi’s immediate dismissal from the party for failing to toe the party’s line and violating the party’s constitution.
Phahrolrazi was vocal about PH’s decision to allow DAP to contest in the Jerai parliamentary seat in Kedah, citing that the seat comprises a big majority of Malay voters and the move is akin to giving an advantage to PAS and BN to play up the Malay sentiment against PH.
Phahrolrazi also insisted that the seat should be contested by Amanah instead of DAP for the Opposition coalition.
The former PAS leader was among the earliest members of Amanah and was also instrumental in helping to form the PAS offshoot party in 2015.
