By Clara Choi, The Malaysian Insider

PETALING JAYA, Nov 9 — Datuk Zaid Ibrahim, who caused a stir yesterday by pulling out from the PKR deputy presidential race, now wants Azmin Ali and Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to leave the party leadership.

In a packed press conference at his home here this morning, the former Umno minister blamed both Azmin and Anwar for all allegations of election fraud and malpractices plaguing the party’s ongoing elections.

“I would like to say, if PKR wants to move, Anwar and Azmin must go… because they are the source of the problem.

“I may not get the support. I may get the support. You may think I am saying this by myself but on that, let us see,” he said.

Zaid later added that Azmin, who is presently in the lead in the deputy presidential race, should withdraw from the polls over allegations that the leader was tampering with the elections process.
