SHAH ALAM: A group of PKR Youth members gathered at their "clubhouse" here to convene an impromptu meeting.

The meeting, scheduled to kick off at 8.30pm on Wednesday (June 19), is believed to have been called to confer about the sex video implicating PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Azmin Ali.

However, youth members attending the meeting were tight-lipped about the gathering's pending agenda.

PKR deputy youth chief Hilman Idham, who is Gombak Setia assemblyman and Azmin's political secretary, is said to be the one chairing the meeting.

A PKR source said the meeting was strictly a gathering of Hilman's supporters and did not involve Youth chief Akmal Nasir, who is Johor Baru MP.

Akmal was in Team Rafizi in the party polls last year.

The number of attendance tonight will indicate the quantum of support for Azmin by the youths.

In the series of three videos, two men are shown sharing a bedroom tryst.

Soon after the videos made their appearance, Santubong PKR youth chief Muhammad Haziq Abdul Aziz claimed to be one of the men in the video.

He alleged that the other man was Azmin.

Azmin, who is Economics Affairs Minister, has strongly denied the allegation, saying that it was made to tarnish his reputation and destroy his political career.

He has also stated that he was convinced that 'the evil and cruel' slander was came from within PKR.

The PKR Youth meeting tonight coincides with the party's political bureau meeting, which is also expected to discuss the same matter.

Meanwhile, the source said Azmin's group was losing support from within the party.

He added some of the members want a clearer picture of what's going on.

"Maybe Hilman is trying to explain," he added.
