Syed Husin Ali confirmed today that Datuk Seri Azmin Ali came close to leaving PKR at the height of his strained relationship with party president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

On the 20thof September 2019, I reiterated that Azmin was considering either joining PPBM or calling an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) to contest the post of party president.

As per discussions between Azmin’s men and Gerakan, I was made to understand that  Azmin wasn’t really in favour of the option.

His desire to become a party president stems from an unwritten convention that a Prime Minister has to be the head of a political party and (or) coalition.


PETALING JAYA: Syed Husin Ali confirmed today that Datuk Seri Azmin Ali came close to leaving PKR at the height of his strained relationship with party president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

The former PKR deputy president, who in recent days spoke openly of his distrust for Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, told Malaysiakini that Azmin considered either joining PPBM or setting up a new party.

“The first one was to join Bersatu, but there are some non-Malays in their group and they would have no place in Bersatu,” Syed Husin was quoted as saying.


“They then tried Gerakan and there was a move to check out Gerakan. But Gerakan is too close to BN and some of them are not happy with this. I have personal knowledge as to who was negotiating. And I have personal knowledge of the Gerakan leadership wanting to meet Anwar to discuss the matter, but Anwar refused to meet them.

“And the third thing they tried to do was to form a new party. At one stage, Azmin was serious about it.

“Many of us were saying if they formed a new party, that will be the end, the death for his gang,” Syed Husin told the news website.

Syed’s claim comes quite close to what I have been saying for quite a while.

On the 20thof September 2019, I reiterated that Azmin was considering either joining PPBM or calling an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) to contest the post of party president.

As per discussions between Azmin’s men and Gerakan, I was made to understand that Azmin wasn’t really in favour of the option.

Syed knows this but is pretending not to know, perhaps because it serves to his better interests.

Azmin currently commands majority support both among PKR Members of Parliament (MPs) and branch leaders and is confident of ousting Anwar.

According to a well-placed source, he instructed a number of MPs and branch leaders to sign any document Anwar may present them with, as long as it wasn’t binding, to prevent Anwar from discovering his (Azmin’s) true strength.

For the record, Azmin had also considered forming a new party together with 32 PKR MPs and a number of branch leaders.

His desire to become a party president stems from an unwritten convention that the Prime Minister of Malaysia has to be the head of a political party and (or) coalition.

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad currently chairs both PPBM and Pakatan Harapan, a coalition of four disparate political entities that are both race-based and multiracial.
