This former Hulu Selangor PKR division treasurer Dr Halili Rahmat is a foolish person despite his qualification. When he was not selected as the candidate for the Hulu Selangor by-election (more of a buy-election with UMNO throwing the public's money at the voters), he chose to defect to UMNO.

I had anticipated the possibility of Zaid Ibrahim losing the by-election and I suspect that PKR may choose him as a candidate for a more urban constituency for the next Malaysian General Election where he will stand a very good chance of getting elected. Now had this stupid Dr. Halili stayed loyal to PKR, then there is also a very good chance that he may be selected as the candidate for Hulu Selangor in the General Election where the corrupt power abusing UMNO will not have the ability to throw so much money because their resources will be then spread over the whole country.
Then this stupid Dr. Halili will stand an extremely good chance of becoming a YB (Yang Berhormat which Haris changed to Yang Berkhidmat which means servant rather than a honorific title).
Thus he botched his chance as it is not likely that UMNO with its numerous rent seeking warlords will select him as a candidate then. Stupid.
