KUALA LUMPUR – The incumbent of Deputy President of PKR Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali set a lead to his contender, Rafizi Ramli in the party election in Penang yesterday.
However, the unofficial results in Kedah which was said to have sided the Minister of Economic Affairs had to be delayed following a fight among its members.
“Thank you Penang,” said Mohamed Azmin briefly through his Twitter account today.
Azmin obtained eight votes while Rafizi got five votes from the 13 PKR divisions.
Nevertheless, based on the results, the former Menteri Besar of Selangor was yet to be able to take a sigh of relief as it was a stiff fight with a mere majority of only three votes.
Rafizi, as the only contender for the number two post in PKR could exceed Azmin anytime as 13 states have yet to vote, including the stalled Kedah. – MalaysiaGazette
