The Pakatan Harapan Wanita chief says having Mukhriz Mahathir as a candidate for deputy prime minister will provide a 'refreshing' take on national politics. – The Malaysian Insight pic by Seth Akmal, January 3, 2018.

THE Pakatan Harapan presidential council should consider alternative leaders, such as Mohamed Azmin Ali and Mukhriz Mahathir, as candidates for prime minister and deputy prime minister at its meeting tomorrow, said a senior opposition leader.

PH Wanita chief Zuraida Kamaruddin said by having Azmin and Mukhriz as candidates, the pact could introduce a “refreshing” take on the country’s politics, and would be able to attract young voters.

  • Finally the cat is out of the bag ....... Azmin wants to be PM (as I long suspected) ...... that may be the reason PKR (read Azmin) refused to recognize the Tun MM - Kak Wan team. IMO, the unprincipled, back-stabbing, duplicitous, Machiavellian Azmin will make an even worse PM than MO1 ..... he tried to launch DEIG in Selangor which was even more opaque than 1MDB ..... refused to declare publicly his assets unlike his predecessor ..... use proxies to hide corruptions .... ruthlessly used his goons to undermine others then heartlessly dumped them (the PKR 5), etc. PAS will be very delighted if their lackey Azmin is PM. They will be the true ruler.

  • After undermining and back-stabbing DAP, Amanah and Bersatu (all fellow components in PH), Azmin finally turned on and back-stabbed his mentor, .... Anwar. What treachery! Nowhere here I read will Anwar ever will be a PM!

  • Zuraida , Ezam and Azmin----------- Nice try!!!. throwing in Mukhriz name to appease the old fox is really in bad taste. There are many more capable guys with strong political temperament and believe me both Azmin and Mukhriz are not exactly in the front of the line in the queue even for the PM registration form. Have yet to see Azmin real performance in a very tense offensive provoking situation almost daily in form to his administration like what the Umno goons did in Penang State CM. Is he cool and witty enough like Madhatir and LGE to fence off the abusive taunts and racist aggression. His minor skirmish with Jamal Jamban clownish antics is a child play. It is not that he is not the man for the job but the job requires a real man to execute. Azmin needs the learning curve and wider exposure to do the job. The time span of him in political expediency and maturity is an essence and an extremely important factor for the Rakyat to determine the acceptance of him. In honest truth he has to build up his credentials as he has yet to prove that he is a dependable team player not only within his own PKR Party but in the coalition front too. Coupled to the hard fact, he has never been really exposed to a real demanding administrative duties. Selangor State is a wholesomely well endowed package which is just there to be managed.

  • At the risk of sounding out platitudes, but it's precisely another classical case of: Haven't I told you so!?
    I'd just proffered my major Ezam-hued musings a couple of days ago. That Ezam typical chameleon-like
    1mega poli-tikus a la 1Malusia gotta the knack of sounding out mischievous babblings prior to his return from his self-exile in neighboring Indonesia.
    His latest salvo in the form of socalled "cleverly corny advice" on the appropriate choices of PH reps. as PM & DPM is totally unsolicited & hence frivillous at best. He childishly reckons his 2-sen ideas on suitable choice of candidates for the said 2 portfolios bears the hall mark of Divine suggestions fitting to be the order of the day.
    PH in general & PKR, in particular, be very wary of this infamous snitchy carton-like joker...
    Don't fret at later junctures, you haven't been forewarned!

  • NO! FACT IS IF ITS ABOUT GOALS AND PURPOSE, THE PERSON WHO SHOULD TAKE OVER AFTER MAHATHIR IS ZAID IBRAHIM - Even Anwar pales in comparison. Eveyrone else is pure political capital, feudalism, self-interest NOT actually the broader NATIONAL PURPOSE.
