Some PKR activists said Selangor PH chairman Datuk Seri Azmin Ali should have been Pakatan Harapan’s choice for prime minister ahead of the 14th general elections. — Picture by Ahmad ZamzahuriSelangor PKR rejected today Pakatan Harapan’s (PH) nomination of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad as its prime minister candidate.

Selangor PKR communications head Hizwan Ahmad said that with his party’s track record in governing Selangor, whose mentri besar is PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Azmin Ali, it was strange that the coalition did not select its PM-elect from PKR.

“The Selangor government is proof that PKR can bring about change in the administration, championing peace and prosperity.

“We find it odd that despite our long fight together and our proven extraordina

A few young activists recently mooted Azmin, who is also Selangor PH chairman, at a forum last Friday as their choice for prime minister ahead of the 14th general elections this year.

Hizwan said Malaysian youths wanted a new and fresh-faced leader to steer the country into the right direction.

He said as Malaysia enters a new era, a far-sighted and effective mind is needed to help the country progress.

“Millennials certainly want to see a fresh character, rich in farsightedness and effective to bring the country out of the catastrophic damages induced by the Umno and Barisan Nasional (BN) leadership,” he said.

“Total reform must be enforced in all respects — in the country’s systems, policies, administrators and its administration.”

He said that although Selangor PKR did not agree with former prime minister and current Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia chairman Dr Mahathir as PH’s prime minister-elect, they still respected the decision of PH’s highest leadership and vowed to continue their fight against BN in the upcoming election.

  2. Tun Mahathir was chosen precisely that is what the voters want, in particular the rural malay voters. Harapan has so many talented young leaders, but do you think they can win the rural voters?

    Rural voters very hard change their support no matter how good the young leader is. Thats why you see most of the oppostion leaders contest in urban areas. They know its impossible to win rural voters. It will career suicide. Which is why Tun come into the picture. Only he has the chance for rural voters to even consider to vote for Harapan.

    You can talk all about many young leaders but none of them can ever hope to win in rural areas. Sad but that is the fact. These rural malay voters has been so used voting for BN, no matter how corrupt or bad BN is.

  3. Selangor PKR is worried that they could be upstaged by Bersatu?

    Honestly speaking, if Mahathir and Bersatu did not join Pakatan Harapan, the opposition can totally forget about this election. Anwar is in jail and PAS has gone rogue without the principled leadership of the late Tok Guru. There is no way the opposition is able to make any impact in this election. The opposition will be totally wiped out. That was the original intent of Najib when he started courting PAS and Anwar was jailed the second time.

    For those of you who like to talk about taking a principled stand, pray tell me how does the opposition fight this election with a reasonable chance of winning without Mahathir and Bersatu?

    And, is it your preference to suffer another 5 years under the BN just because you think you have some principle?

    For me, I can’t stand the sight of seeing this country getting ruined day by day due to the greed of one person.

    Think carefully and not be clouded by your emotions.
