Anwar Ibrahim no other choice but to sack Azmin Ali NOW!

Star Online:

Azmin group plans ‘parallel congress’

By Joceline Tan

Many in PKR are still hoping against hope for a last-minute reconciliation between their president and deputy president with only a week before the party’s national congress in Melaka. But the window of opportunity is closing as the group loyal to PKR No. 2 Datuk Seri Azmin Ali is planning to hold their own gathering – or a parallel congress as some call it – on the same day as the party congress on Dec 6.

The group is aware that the parallel congress will not be recognised by the party but they want to show that they have the numbers, especially at the supreme council level and even among divisions in the country.

It is understood that there is still a narrow chance of reconciliation because a supreme council member who enjoys the respect of the top two will be meeting Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to seek an 11th hour solution.

Anwar had tweeted on Friday evening for all leaders and delegates to attend the congress and to reignite the flame of reformasi and idealism.


Both sides understand how embarrassing it will be to have two congresses going on at the same time. It would be akin to publicly announcing that the party has been carved into two.

Moreover, Selangor, a vital state for PKR, has opted not to hold a state convention.

The party’s Selangor chairman and Azmin acolyte Datuk Amiruddin Shari has apparently refused to call for a state convention and it will be the only state not to do so.

In the meantime, Deputy Youth chief Hilman Idham confirmed that his faction will be turning out in full force at the joint opening of the Wanita and Youth wings, which will be officiated by Azmin.

Wanita chief Haniza Talha has obtained approval from the supreme council to invite Azmin to officiate at their event on the evening of Dec 5.

However, the Youth faction aligned to Youth chief Akmal Nasir has invited Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail to open their gathering on Dec 6.

The messy chain of events erupted after Akmal’s faction decided to break the tradition of inviting the deputy president to officiate at the opening of the two wings.

The move angered the Azmin group and a series of accusations and counter-accusations ensued.

The situation was further inflamed by the removal of the Youth wing’s permanent chairman and his deputy, both of whom are aligned to Azmin.

The reason for their removal was that they are above 35 years old. It was quite obvious that Akmal wanted them out so that a new permanent chairman who is on the same page as him can be appointed.

The party congress has become a battleground for the rival factions.

“I am very disappointed with this open defiance against our president. Many members are angry and they want Anwar to take action,” said vice-president Chang Lih Kang.

There is speculation that delegates who support Anwar may vent their frustration at Azmin – regardless of whether he is present.

His repeated declaration of devotion to Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is viewed as a betrayal to the party.

There are bound to be calls for Anwar to come down hard on the rebel group.

Dökkálfar Dwarfs 

I don't believe there's any chance of a genuine reconciliation. Even if a last minute patch-up were to miraculously occur, it will be an insincere pretence, just to show the outside world that PKR is still intact, which has not been true for quiet a while since Azmin Ali has openly shown his contempt, arrogance and insubordination to his PKR party leader.

Anwar will only be delaying the inevitable in allowing Azmin Ali to get the better of him minute by minute, in the faint hope of retaining an intact PKR for his PM-aspiration.

Anwar will be better off by sacking Azmin Ali for a variety of reasons and accept that the Chief Rat-Dwarf will leave with 15 MPs. It'll only delay his political ascension but that will be more beneficial than allowing Azmin to chip away his party authority day by day.

We all know Anwar has been holding back his anger against Azmin ONLY because of the PM transition scheme, but Mahathir seems to be incrementally benefiting from Azmin's show of overt arrogant treachery to PKR and Anwar.

Anwar must NOW take action or be damned forever.


  1. Let him be damned forever.
    There shouldn't be any room for nepotism and corruption in Malaysia Baru.

  2. I am not sure if Toonsie is happy or sad to see this pergolak-kan in PKR but I know DAP is watching with keen interest. With the inevitable breakup of PKR, DAP will become most powerful in Parliament with the most seats. Then we see who is Tua Lampah and who Bo Lampah. Ha ha ha...

    Personally I hope Anwar and his PKR supporters, together with Amanah, merge with DAP, forming a true multi-racial party (not just a coalition) with around 80-90 seats. All three are already multi-racial. Hopefully with Warisan and a few others who may wish to join they may have a simple majority. But even if they don't it doesn't matter. The strongest block will still be in the driver's seat.

    Azmin can leave PKR and do whatever he likes.

    1. PKR and DAP merging into one party has been the most useful remark by you TS, applause applause, wakakaka

  3. Now would be a good time to release Sandakan video 4. Or on the day when Azmin makes his speech at the PKR AGM, if he dares show up.

    1. wah, you are becoming like Machiavelli wakakaka
