KUALA LUMPUR – Vice-President of PKR, Zuraida Kamaruddin revealed the content of her meeting with Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim several months ago at the Parliament.

Earlier, she requested for a meeting with the President of PKR through a four pages letter. When she was finally granted the opportunity to meet Anwar, she said that Anwar told her about the sex video which supposedly implicated Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali.

“I must say, I met Anwar and he mentioned to me, ‘Zuraida, it is Azmin in the video. The police explained that it is Azmin,” she said adding that she responded that they should allow the police to investigate if Azmin was involved in the video.

“Anwar said, he (Azmin) is like his brother to him and he sympathised Azmin before I told him to help Azmin if he truly sympathised him.

“But Anwar told me that Mahathir asked him (Anwar) to sack Azmin.

“I questioned Anwar, if it is true, why did Tun issue statement that Azmin need not take leave and can continue his work as a minister. Anwar then whispered and said that Tun M was not consistent in that issue,” she said.

However, the Member of Parliament of Ampang told Anwar that she doesn’t know the character of Tun Mahathir and even her President, Anwar well.

“Why did I say that? Because, I entered the party alone and not through an NGO or UMNO. I did not know Anwar as he was imprisoned when I joined the party and when he was released in 2004, he was then imprisoned again, thus, I still do not know him well.

“I fought with the grassroots; I entered the field to strengthen the party. I built the Keadilan Women and that was what we did. Otherwise, we cannot be as strong as we are now. Do not belittle our strength,” she said.

According to Zuraida, she had explained to Anwar during their meeting that she was not there to discuss about Azmin, but to discuss about herself.

While stating her disappointment, she said that Anwar had cheated her when he told her that the selection of state chairmen will be referred to the meeting. However, on the next day, he announced the appointment of PKR State Chairman without any discussion.

According to her, Anwar’s excuses were he felt threatened when he received he news after being discharged from the hospital that there were attempts to topple him in the party.

“I told him that if there were people who wanted to topple him, we would not have allowed him to win the Presidency without contest. If Azmin had contested, I would support Azmin.

“I asked Anwar, why he took such action after becoming the President. He ignored our contributions after we worked hard to strengthen the party.

“Furthermore, the Chairmen appointed by Anwar in states also ignored our people there and we had to go to the field to defend their fates in order to reinforce the party,” she said.

Zuraida also confessed that she complained to Anwar about the existence of syndicate which lifted the newcomers who had freshly joined the party for a month as candidate and it side-lined the party loyalists. –MalaysiaGazette
