It has been two days since Azmin was said to be joining Gerakan in the near future, yet there's no comment from the guy himself.
The way I see it, the longer he keeps the speculation alive, the more likely that it's true.
Or maybe he's just keeping his options open.
I have to agree with those who said that it would be a good move by him.
More so if he could bring along his supporters in PKR into the dying Gerakan.
If the current Gerakan leaders are smart, they should immediately accept the Azmin camp and give them posts in the party.
It's the best way to keep their party alive.
So far, they have been positive about it.
After all, Azmin's faction in PKR is more multi-racial compared to that of Anwar's which is more Malay-base.
Because of that, I don't think they would have much problem adapting to Gerakan ways.
At the same time, their inclusion will enable Gerakan to shed its image of being a fake multi-racial party, which is actually a Chinese one, like DAP.
Furthermore, I can't see how Azmin can carry on with PKR after that gay sex video scandal.
It's quite clear who had him stripped naked and humiliated.
Whether it's true that Azmin is one of the men in the video is immaterial. The damage had been done for him.
Well, they have wanted to politically kill him off since way back then.
I wrote this back in January last year, even before GE14
Anwar has so far tried to portray himself as the good guy talking about shunning gutter politics and reconciliation.
After all, he won on that one.
The only way Azmin can get back at him is by doing something such as the speculated Gerakan move.
Anwar will be screwed if a huge chunk of PKR follows Azmin into Gerakan, especially among the MPs and assemblymen.
His position as PM-in-waiting will suddenly be severely compromised.
Dr Mahathir will have a very valid reason not to choose him as his successor.
How can Anwar be entrusted to take care of the country if he can't even keep his party together, the handsome old man could say.
It would be a master stroke by Azmin. Turning a defeat into victory.
He can have his own party, stop the dirty talks about the gay sex video and at the same time gives Anwar a bloody nose or even a KO punch.
In fact if he plays his cards well, he may still be a PM one day.
He probably just have to wait a bit after
and becomes the first Malaysian PM from a truly multi-racial party.....ahead of Anwar some more.
After all, as I previously wrote in February 2015 and before Dr Mahathir joined Pakatan, Azmin is actually
Well, actually he's the only viable one that Pakatan have among its younger leaders.
Even Mukhriz, in term of capabilities as PM, is questionable.
Who else? Rafizi? Syed Saddiq? Come on la.
Guan Eng cannot okay. Even if he is a Malay, the guy is too irritating. Lying some more, like that GST robbery accusation in Parliament.
So, it still has to be Azmin as PM in the end.
Of course, all that provided that Pakatan doesn't get slaughtered by the BN-Pas alliance in the next general election.
