PKR deputy president Azmin Ali.
KLANG: PKR deputy president Azmin Ali’s term as director in the board of Selangor State Development Corporation (PKNS) has not been extended.
He was informed about it on Thursday via a telephone call, according to party insiders.
They said that Azmin was not even given time to discuss a possible extension of his tenure in the board.
“He received the call on Thursday and got the letter informing him he is no longer needed in PKNS the following day,’’ said a source.
The source said if Azmin had know about the decision, he would have gone in to negotiate an extension.
“If you are a career politician, it is important that you hold a position in a government-linked company or organisation to be influential,’’ said the source who is also a career politician.
The decision not to reappoint Azmin is said to be solely made by Mentri Besar and PKNS chairman Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim who is also regarded as Azmin’s nemesis by many.
“What Tan Sri (Khalid) has done is to clip Azmin’s wings just before the party polls set to kick off in Feb or March,’’ said the source.
PKNS is one of the state’s biggest sources of income through property development and investment.
Azmin, who is Bukit Antarabangsa assemblyman and Gombak MP, is also known to be eying the mentri besar position in Selangor.
