KUALA LUMPUR: The leading candidate in the PKR vice-presidential race Nurul Izzah Anwar said she does not hate Azmin Ali, the deputy presidential contender.

"I don't hate him but I hate cheating,” she said at a dialogue session organised by PKR Youth at the Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall last night.

The dialogue was moderated by PKR Youth chief candidate, Badrul Hisham Shaharin, or popularly known as Chegu Bard.

Nurul, who is Lembah Pantai MP, wanted to clear the air over allegations by some party members that she hated Azmin in the wake of the acriminous ongoing party election.

PKR was thrown into turmoil when Zaid Ibrahim withdrew from the race for the number two post, alleging malpractices and irregularities in the voting process. He also blamed de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim and Azmin for the current troubles plaguing the party.

Nurul acknowledged the anger of PKR members over the way the election was conducted, but said she has nothing against Azmin.

She said that what was important now was for all party members to get on with the reformation. “Don't stop the reformation work. The people are supporting us even though things are getting tough. They have very high expectation of us.”

Clearly annoyed

Nurul, who looked stressed and not her usual jovial self, was clearly annoyed over reports of alleged fraud in the party polls.

"I'm here not as Anwar's or Wan Azizah (Wan Ismail's) daughter. I'm here as Nurul. I'm here as a fellow PKR leader and member just like everybody else here.

"These past few weeks I have been verbally abused at the many divisions that I have visited over the manner the election is being conducted,” she said.

“Many unhappy members have asked me to tell my daddy or my mummy about (conduct of the election),” she added.

Although Nurul didn't elaborate much, it is clear that grassroots members were angry that Anwar and Wan Azizah were not doing anything over reports and complaints of alleged malpractices.

Almost all the 300 participants in the dialogue session were given a chance to speak and ask questions about the troubled election.

Many of them, including women, from Penang, Kedah, Perak, Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, Negri Sembilan, Malacca, Johor and Pahang did not mince their words when they criticised the PKR leadership and its central election committee (CEC) for the current state of affairs.

Although they did not mention names, they were clearly expressing their frustration at Anwar for keeping quiet over questionable practices in some divisions such Libaran, Sabah, and a few other places.

It was highlighted in the online media that the voter turnout for Libaran was fewer than 100 members. But the official result showed Azmin obtained 881 votes, Mustafa Kamil Ayub (the other contestant) eight and Zaid six.

A youth leader from Perak highlighted the discrepancies in the number of ballot papers printed and the actual membership of a division. “Why was it that in some divisions only 15% of the ballot papers were printed when the actual numbers of members could be higher?

"But in Libaran about 900 ballot papers were printed but how did the CEC know in advance that there would be a high voter turnout?” he asked.
