PERMATANG PAUH, Penang (The Star/Asia News Network) - Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) president Wan Azizah Wan Ismail says it is her duty and responsibility to assume the role of Selangor Menteri Besar as the party had already made its decision on the matter.
"All the positions I hold are a responsibility. Even without a position, it is a service to the people," she said on Wednesday after a prayer ceremony at the Permatang Nibong mosque here.
On claims that as Menteri Besar, she would be a mere "puppet" of her husband Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, Datuk Seri Wan Azizah said: "Well, he was in jail when I was elected (party) president. They can criticise whatever they want, but we have a team and teamwork is what we emphasise on," she said.
The PKR Supreme Council endorsed Dr Wan Azizah for the role of Selangor Menteri Besar last Monday.
