In a surprise move, PKR has appointed the party’s vice president Rafizi Ramli as its new secretary-general replacing Datuk Saifuddin Nasution Ismail.

The new appointment is seen as a move to consolidate the party now that deputy president Azmin Ali has taken over the Selangor Mentri Besar position.

Saifuddin and vice president Nurul Izzah Anwar have been appointed as Election co-directors of the party, while Bayan Baru MP Sim Tze Tzin takes over from Rafizi as the party’s strategic director.

The decision was made at a political bureau and central leadership council meetings, that were chaired by PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail on Sunday night.

Speaking to The Star Online, PKR’s Women chief Zuraida Kamaruddin said the move, while an unconventional one, was done with a view “to put the best people in the best places”.

“Now that the deputy president is now a mentri besar, he is now preoccupied with other tasks outside the party. That is why we have to beef up the appointments,” she said when contacted.

Bila Sim ganti Rafizi sebagai Pakar Strategi – itu sendiri membuktikan bahawa Rafizi gagal dan tidak mampu memainkan peranan sebagai Strategist.

Tak ramai dalam dunia ini, orang yang gagal dalam perancangan, tetapi dinaikkan pangkat. Rafizi memang istimewa kepada sebuah parti gila bernama PKR.

Bukan niat kita nak menyibuk, tetapi hanya komen sebagai kawan dan sahabat. Kita pernah tengok Rafizi di Parlimen, tidak berkesan mana pun. Buat menghabiskan beras.

Tapi sebagai kawan, kita ucap Tahniah lah juga.

Tahniah Pizi. Nak banding Pizi dengan Mustapa Ali memang jauh. Jauh panggang dari api. Orang lama, permainan dia lain macam sikit.
