Azmin Ali : Has been who never was!
Azmin Ali is a brash upstart wet behind the ears political has-been who never was.Up to the time of the Langkah Sheraton….up to the time he was MB of Selangor…he was in his league.
He had handled PKR well in the absence of DSAI. He was able to blunt Anwar’s Langkah Kajang and took the position of MB for himself rather than allow Wan Azizah to be MB. In the PKR arena, his political acumen was adequate. The cut and thrust of party politics in PKR he could handle but even then you could see stirrings of political ambitions that made you wonder if PKR would be able to contain his vaulting ambitions.
After the 2018 elections and Pakatan Harapan ascent to Government happened, Tun saw in Azmin someone he could use to keep Anwar in check. To this end, Mahathir appointed Azmin to a senior ministerial post not on merit but for convenience – but the dye is cast.
It was here at federal level that Azmin lost his sense of humanity and humility. (author unknown)
