PETALING JAYA: The formation of alliances, groupings and cartels do not augur well for the future of PKR, said its deputy president Azmin Ali.
Azmin, who is defending his post in the party polls next month, said while he agreed that contests were a healthy democratic process, factionalism within the party was a concern.
However, he added that it was party members who would decide on the fate of candidates.
He is up against party secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution and Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim for the deputy president’s post.
Saifuddin, Nurul Izzah and Rafizi Ramli have announced a pact, which is seen as an alternative for members to choose from following the fall out between Azmin and Khalid.
Azmin denied criticisms that PKR top leadership had become disconnected with mid-level leaders in PKR and grassroots supporters.
He added that the track record of service rendered to the grassroots was proof of working relationship between leaders at all levels.
On calls by some party members for candidates to spar in live debates, Azmin said he welcomed such a move but it was up to the party secretariat to decide.
As to his vision if given the mandate by members, Azmin said he would be making an important “clarification” on Wednesday.
