GE13: Azmin Ali not giving in, says MB should not be "lame duck"

The next Mentri Besar of Selangor should not be a “lame duck” who allows himself to be led by others, said PKR deputy president Azmin Ali.
The lame duck reference is seen as an indirect hit at Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim who has been endorsed by DAP and PAS for the top post.
In the past, Azmin has been reported to be upset at being overlooked for the mentri besar's post.
Speaking to reporters at the PKR headquarters after meeting Selangor PKR leaders, Azmin said Selangor should be led by someone decisive and with a clear vision, given that Pakatan Rakyat won the general election by an overwhelming majority of 40 seats against Barisan Nasional's 12 seats.
Azmin, re-elected as Gombak MP and Bukit Antrabangsa assemblyman in Sunday's polls, said he would “reveal all” about the state of affairs in the party at a press conference on Friday.
He intends to address the issue of nepotism in PKR and what happened during the Permatang Pauh by-election in 2008.
