Former PKR vice-president Tian Chua has been sacked by his party for contesting as an independent in the 15th General Election (GE15).
However, PKR secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution Ismail said Tian Chua can still submit an appeal against his dismissal within 14 days and the appeal board will examine the basis of the request.
After getting sidelined by PKR and the Pakatan Harapan (PH) coalition, Tian Chua contested as an independent candidate for the Batu parliamentary seat against 9 other candidates, which included his own party member Prabakaran Parameswaran.
During GE15, party president Anwar Ibrahim said that any PKR member contesting as an independent candidate would be sacked.
At the time, Tian Chua said he was ready for any consequences from his beloved party and explained he decided to contest for the seat independently to ensure it doesn’t fall to PKR’s opponents.
