Selangor MB office: Salehuddin applied for PSB top gun's job

The Selangor Menteri Besar's office confirmed today that ex PKR secretary-general Salehuddin Hashim had applied to be CEO of Kumpulan Peransang Selangor Berhad (KPS) but a more suitable candidate was appointed instead.

It said in statement that he was interviewed by the company's nomination committee before arriving at the final decision.

It was not disclosed, however, when Salehuddin submitted his application.

This clarification was probably in response to rumours concerning his quitting the party.

Pakatan stalwart Syed Hussin Ali, had speculated that that Salehuddin's resignation and animosity towards his former party was in fact due to his failure to bag the CEO job.

NONESalehuddin (right), however. blasted Syed Husin's statement, which he claims stemed from a 'grossly childish' personal vendetta.

He also claimed that it was Anwar who had suggested that he take the job, decrying Syed Hussin's allegations that he was after money, given his alleged demand for a RM50,000 monthly salary.

"I told Anwar that I would accept the job if I was paid RM1 per month.

"I do not wish to make public such confidential documents. But suffice to say, Syed Husin should have done his homework before shooting his mouth off," Salehuddin had retorted.

Despite his denials, this latest development, may add fresh fuel to rumours surrounding the real reason for his abrupt departure from PKR.
