'Azmin not immune to action for absenteeism but has provided reasons'

PKR president Anwar Ibrahim said his party deputy Azmin Ali is not immune to disciplinary action but said the latter has informed the party of the reasons for his absence at PKR meetings.

However, he added that it was still up to the PKR disciplinary board to verify those reasons.

"For now, there is no action against him. He is not immune to action but he has always given reasons for not attending meetings.

"There is indeed a rule that if someone does not attend party meetings for three consecutive times, they would lose their position.

"Sometimes people try to provide reasons, so the disciplinary board need to see if it is true or not," he was quoted as saying by Berita Harian.

Speaking at a press conference in Kuala Terengganu, Anwar reiterated that PKR leaders should attend party meetings.

"Tomorrow we have a leadership meeting, monthly meeting and in another week the political bureau meeting. So all leaders are asked to attend," he said.

Azmin and his allies were absent from the PKR central leadership council meeting today. 

PKR leaders aligned to Azmin have been absent from PKR meetings chaired by Anwar amid a rift between the two men.

However, Anwar had insisted that the party was not suffering from a factional fight.
