Semalam dia berdegar-degar membela diri konon dikambinghitamkan oleh Umno... Dengan pendedahan Yusri ini maka status Rohaizat/Umno telah di 'check-mate' oleh Pas/Pakatan Rakyat.
Yusri Isahak, yang membuat penampilan mengejutkan pada 20 Ogos lalu pada satu sidang media khas di Yayasan Aman, Penanti, telah mengatakan, kawan baiknya Rohaizat mengkhianati UMNO/BN kerana tidak menyatakan kebenaran.
Yesterday, Yusri in a press conference held in the capital city said he regretted that his statement, which was meant to defend himself, was used as political modal by certain quarters to attack the BN candidate for the Permatang Pasir by-election, a statement seemingly pointing to PAS.
The Islamist party has gone all out in its campaign to attack Rohaizat’s professional past but denied that the attacks were targetted at the Umno politician personally, claiming they were merely questioning his integrity as a leader that is suppose to represent voters should he be elected.
“He came to us and asked for a platform to clear his name and we gave it to him,” PAS vice-president Datuk Mahfuz Omar who is the election director for the Permatang Pasir vote, told a press conference here.
“Yusri has been consistent in saying that he is not out to tarnish his former partner and close friend but to defend himself. He believes that the blame should be equally spread between the two,” added the PAS leader.
