PORT DICKSON: Leaders who attended the inaugural party retreat displayed a united front despite the absence of several senior personalities including Datuk Seri Azmin Ali.

The PKR deputy president skipped the event which ended yesterday.

He had however informed the party earlier that he would not be attending the three-day retreat.

Also absent were vice-presidents Zuraida Kamaruddin and Ali Biju.

Zuraida had also earlier said she could not attend the retreat as she had official engagements to keep.

PKR secretary-general Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail said he met Azmin personally after the Cabinet meeting last Friday to invite him to the event.

“Azmin said he has some commitments and I have to respect that.

“Others who could not make it sent me emails, and the majority of them gave reasons for not attending,” he said at the retreat closing.

Azmin was scheduled to give a speech on Saturday night and in his absence, PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim took over the 15-minute slot.

Saifuddin also said the resolution would be forwarded to the remaining 20 leaders who were absent.
