It looks like the door is firmly shut on former PKR Deputy President, Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali’s purported return to the Pakatan Harapan fold.

PKR Communications Director Fahmi Fadzil said the decision on the matter was reached at the PKR Central Leadership Council (MPP) meeting last night.

“The MPP has also decided that PKR will not discuss or work with Azmin, who is considered by members, party supporters and the public as one of the principal causes of the ‘Sheraton Move’ betrayal,” he said in a statement today.

Talk has been rife that a possible reconciliation could be on the cards for Azmin and the party after he was reported to have met two PKR emissaries at the Sheraton Hotel in Petaling Jaya recently.

It was also reported that the meeting was linked to PKR president Anwar Ibrahim.

PKR did not dispute the report, while Azmin told reporters in Penang yesterday that he “could not remember” if he was at Sheraton Hotel on that date.

PKR on Feb 24, 2020 sacked Azmin and former PKR vice -president Datuk Zuraida Kamaruddin, after the duo criticised the PKR leadership. Nine other PKR federal lawmakers also followed the duo in leaving the party and joined Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu).
