PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali, currently on bad terms with party president Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim, welcomes the call by PAS and UMNO for Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to serve a full term as Prime Minister.

Azmin’s call ends weeks of speculation that he’s with Mahathir and no longer with Anwar.

Following a very public spat over a sex video scandal that went viral, Azmin has thrown several hints that Anwar’s days as PKR president were over, the latest being a Twitter message in which he insinuated that Anwar lacked majority support.

Current estimates suggest Azmin has a firm grip on PKR with a near 100 per cent chance of toppling Anwar in the event an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) is called.


SUBANG JAYA: PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali, currently on bad terms with party president Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim, welcomes the call by PAS and UMNO for Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to serve a full term as Prime Minister.

According to a report by the New Straits Times Online, Azmin noted that the statement made by PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang was consistent with his call for the PM to be given the full five-year mandate to rebuild Malaysia.

“The leadership of Tun Dr Mahathir is required to ensure the stability, continuity and consistency of government policies, for driving investment as well as creating jobs and prosperity for all.


“I believe that political stability will build up the country’s fundamentals and integrity, including the concept of ‘shared prosperity’ that will bring Malaysia back to being an Asian Tiger,” he said in a statement, here, today.

Azmin’s call ends weeks of speculation that he’s with Mahathir and no longer with Anwar.

Following a very public spat over a sex video scandal that went viral, Azmin has thrown several hints that Anwar’s days as PKR president were over, the latest being a Twitter message in which he insinuated that Anwar lacked majority support.

Current estimates suggest Azmin has a firm grip on PKR with a near 100 per cent chance of toppling Anwar in the event an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) is called.

Azmin’s call also means he does not agree that Mahathir needs to hand over power to Anwar when the time is right as agreed upon by key Pakatan Harapan leaders.

Anwar keeps insisting that the agreement was signed but stops short of revealing if it states that Mahathir needs to hand over power “after two years” or “before the full term is up.”

On the 20th of July 2019, TTF posted:

I wishes to note, that when Mahathir said he would not stay on “a full term,” the focus should be on the actual meaning of “a full term” and not what one believes a full term means.

For the record, a full term in Malaysia refers to a five-year period beginning the day parliament first convenes following a general election.

That is to say, if Mahathir or whoever may replace him as Prime Minister does not call for the dissolution of parliament by or before the 17th of July 2023, the 14th Malaysian parliament automatically gets dissolved.

However, if Mahathir chooses to call for the dissolution of parliament in 2020 or 2021, he would technically have fulfilled his promise to relinquish his post “before the full term is up.”

See the game, or do you want me to spell it out for you?

Mahathir has given Azmin an ultimatum to either challenge Anwar or leave PKR along with all of his supporters.
