ALOR SETAR: Bayu assemblyman Datuk Azmi Che Hussein (pic) has denied speculation that he was being considered for the Kedah Mentri Besar position.  

When asked if he was ready for the post, Azmi quickly brushed it off, saying that he was not in the list of candidates.  

"It's not me, I'm not in it. I have no comments about others," he told a press conference after launching the Economic Transformation programme in SM Darussa'adah in Titi Besi here Sunday.

Earlier, a news report in a Malay daily said the Kedah assembly deputy speaker's name was among the three candidates presented by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to the Kedah Regency Council for the state's top post.  

It was reported that the other two candidates were Guar Chempedak assemblyman Datuk Dr Ku Abd Rahman Ku Ismail and Ayer Hangat assemblyman Datuk Mohd Rawi Abdul Hamid.  

On Jan 20, Kedah Umno deputy chairman Datuk Seri Ahmad Bashah Md Hanipah initiated a revolt against Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir by claiming that the state party division leaders had lost confidence in his leadership.  

Najib, who is also Umno president, was asked to step in to resolve the crisis.
