In a statement signed by the 28 senior PKR leaders – all aligned to Azmin – they said Anwar should focus on condemning the attempt to use gutter politics to bring down political leaders rather than suggest that Azmin resign if the veracity of the sex video is established.

  • Correct, party unity comes first.

  • When the video initially emerged Azmin and his goons were the ones who pointed the finger at Anwar based only on a hunch. Did they give their President a chance to defend him? They wanted a all out war. Now they are blaming him for not defending him?

    • You're spot on. I wouldn't trust Azmin at all. He sold out a while back. Now let the whole thing play out. Anwar is not obliged to Azmin or anyone for anything. A man who does his time in and out of jail unfairly has more steel in him than all these weaklings combined.

  • Mirror, mirror on the wall, Anwar should never be PM after all.
