KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim says that Economic Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Azmin Ali should resign if he is conclusively identified as one of the two men in a recent viral sex video.
The PKR president said although his initial views were that Azmin need not resign, recent developments in the investigations had to be taken into consideration.
"If the investigations are conclusive, then he needs to resign, but if we have not ascertained the truth of the two guys in the video then he (Azmin) has the option.
"It is subject to whether the police or the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission ... have ascertained the veracity of the video. And if he is identified conclusively, then he needs to resign," said Anwar during a press conference at the Parliament lobby on Wednesday (July 17).
Earlier on Wednesday, Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad had said that Azmin need not go on leave pending the outcome of the investigations on the video.
On July 16, Primary Industries and Commodities Deputy Minister Datuk Seri Shamsul Iskandar Md Akin said that those accused in the sex video should go on leave.
The police have arrested and remanded nine people so far, including Farhash Wafa Salvador Rizal Mubarak, who is Perak PKR state chief and Anwar's political secretary.
Asked about Farhash's arrest, Anwar said he was surprised and unsure why he was detained.
However, he said that the police had their reasons and that the investigations should "proceed according to its course".
When asked his opinion on insinuations that Farhash was linked to some "higher-up masterminds" within the party, Anwar quipped; "Higher than me is Azizah (his wife and Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail)."
Asked if the scandal had caused an split within PKR, Anwar said that almost 80% of party state leaders had contacted him.
"They said that they are behind the party leadership's on this. Let the police investigate," he said.
Anwar added that the PKR leadership would be having a retreat this weekend and had even invited Dr Mahathir to attend.
Hmmm, I have to eff someone a.s.a.p
I mean politically
Police have arrested Farhash Wafa Salvador Rizal Mubarak, who is Anwar's political secretary and PKR Perak Chief. Anwar acted 'dunno'.
The Police have not authenticated the video clips in spite of being told to do so. Why?
Instead the police went rounding up PKR people who Azmin said could be behind a conspiracy against him.
Atuk's hands behind police?
Azmin Ali has also eff-ed off Shamsul Iskandar who told him to stand aside (go on leave) until the police investigation is completed
Mahathir said it's not necessary for Azmin to go on leave but Anwar said he (Azmin) should.
The Anwar-Azmin kamcheng has gone down the tube - bye bye.
Anwar is resigned to the fact that at best he can have only half of the support of PKR MPs, he needs the 42 from DAP. And he will get 42, provided he obeys the instructions of LKS. Even some UMNO, PAS Warisan etc MPs will support Anwar’s quest...Nazri, KJ ha ha ha....that is why he is now tightening the screw a wee bit on Azmin.ReplyDelete
This is all within LKS’s grand plan of course. He knows the Malay psyche. Tak payah buat apa apa. Just keep heads down, buat tak tahu, just main Sudah Aku Punya. The Malays will find their own ways to self-destruct. Next up at the Bersatu EGM/AGM just watch the wayang kulit, fireworks and meriam buluh.
Enam kementrian sudah dicapati. Sikit sikit lama lama kita dapat......DPM....ha ha ha...
"he obeys the instructions of LKS"Delete
If the instructions result in today's policies, Melayu sokong!
A classic tale of a bird falling into Dung/Shit and instead of being comfy and safe remaining there, instead start making noises and coming out of the Dung/Shit to be noticed and a star among other birds, with Cats and Dogs surrounding the Dung/Shit.
Who is the bird?
What type of bird is it? Pipit/sparrow, Enggang/hornbill or Helang/Eagle?
Malaysia have all those common birds as well as in this blog.
The arrest of a number of people alleged to be complicit in the distribution of the videos is a threat to Anwar, as at least one of them is part of his personal staff.ReplyDelete
Things are getting very ugly.
Anybody wondering why UMNO Lokman who started by revealing the video is not part of those suspects being called up and investigated and named or was he released? Why Ahjibkor and UMNO President seems not bothered to pounce and attack PKR on moralities issues unlike before?ReplyDelete
And why PAS did not also come out with some religious ruling like previous videos of corruption and sex expose to declare it as not admissible as evidence? Why so quiet?
I think a lot of people were fed Dedak/promises to initiate a chain of events to either:
1. Get rich quick themselves and not bothered about the consequences.
2. Seek revenge within PKR themselves for their wins or losses in the last PKR party elections.
3. Weaken or breakup PKR.
4. Weaken or breakup the PH coalition.
5. Divert public attention from all the corruption and exposes lined up by the PH Govt. and realise it as a real danger to their UMNO-PAS/BN comeback in the next GE15 or their own party survival currently under extreme stress and division.
Whatever it is, since no one has the numbers yet, the status quo remains of the current setup of DSAI taking over from TDM as PM 8 when the time is up after 2 years.
if azmin gang join bersatu, then tian chua how?ReplyDelete
