Azmin offering Dr M Gombak to thwart his ascent, muses PAS man

Published on  |  Modified on

A Selangor PAS leader has alleged the offering of the Gombak seat to Pakatan Harapan chairperson Dr Mahathir Mohamad is likely an attempt to stop the latter from becoming prime minister, should the coalition win the next general election.

PAS research director Mohd Zuhdi Marzuki speculated it is perhaps because the incumbent PKR deputy president Azmin Ali fears it is a risky seat, and would rather Mahathir take the fall.

“I don't know what Azmin's motive is to let the Gombak seat go, but I can say it is a seat that is not safe for PKR, based on our analysis of three-cornered fights,” he said...
