PETALING JAYA: All eyes are on Port Dickson, the constituency of PKR supremo Anwar Ibrahim, as party leaders gather tonight for a “retreat” that promises enough political fireworks as a shadow hangs over the future of its deputy president Mohamed Azmin Ali.

Adding to the excitement will be the attendance of Pakatan Harapan chairman Dr Mahathir Mohamad who accepted an invitation to the event.

“He wants to speak to the PKR leaders,” a source close to the PKR leadership told FMT.

The gathering comes on the back of the open feud between Anwar and Azmin, after the former’s call that the economic affairs minister should quit his Cabinet post if it was proven that several gay sex videos implicating him were genuine.

Azmin’s supporters have defended him, while Anwar’s camp today announced the formation of the council of state chiefs to back their president.
