Azmin, Zuraida, Baru spotted at Dr M’s house

Mohamed Azmin Ali, Zuraida Kamaruddin and Baru Bian visited Dr Mahathir Mohamad shortly after he resigned as prime minister.

SERI KEMBANGAN: Federal ministers Mohamed Azmin Ali and Zuraida Kamaruddin met with Dr Mahathir Mohamad at his home here today after they were sacked from PKR.

Also spotted was Works Minister Baru Bian who earlier today quit PKR.

Azmin, the economic affairs minister, was spotted entering the compound of Mahathir’s house at 2.43pm, followed by Zuraida, who is the housing and local government minister.

Their visit comes in the wake of Mahathir announcing his resignation this afternoon.

Earlier today, PKR gave Azmin and Zuraida, who is the party’s deputy president and vice-president respectively, the boot.

PKR secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution, in announcing the sacking, said certain individuals had openly betrayed the party’s stand on the position of the prime minister.

This led to nine others, including Baru, quitting the party.
