KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 8 — PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Azmin Ali appeared unsatisfied by his tirade against “traitors” in his party yesterday and repeated it this morning for emphasis.

However, the PKR leader who abandoned his party’s ongoing national congress in Melaka yesterday still has not stated who or what was betrayed and by whom.

“Traitors,” he wrote on Facebook to translate his remarks from yesterday.

Azmin and PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim appear to be in an undeclared war with each other, believed to be over who will succeed Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad as the prime minister.

Azmin is overtly seeking to suggest he is aligned with Dr Mahathir.

Among other signals, he is using Dr Mahathir’s “Shared Prosperity Vision” as a cover for his “appreciation dinner” here that was previously thought to be a rival event to the PKR national congress.

Dr Mahathir’s picture is also front and centre on Azmin’s Facebook page, with Azmin looking at the prime minister from the background.

Yesterday, Azmin and his so-called “cartel” walked out from the PKR National Congress and later accused Anwar and his faction of not honouring the truce they negotiated before the start of the event.
