PKR vice-president Dr Xavier Jayakumar has dismissed allegations that there is “nepotism and cronyism” within the party in Selangor, as claimed by a youth leader who resigned earlier Friday.

Syed Badli Shah Syed Osman stepped down as Selangor PKR Youth secretary and had claimed democracy was “dead” within the party and leaders were handing out political appointments as a way to solidify their influence and power.
