Azmin backs call for Ma­hathir to stay on for full term as PM

Fiji Sun - - Asia/pacific News - Kuala Lumpur:

The frac­tious re­la­tion­ship be­tween two key Malaysian lead­ers - pre­mier-in-wait­ing An­war Ibrahim and top min­is­ter Azmin Ali - took a new twist on Mon­day when Mr Azmin called for Prime Min­is­ter Ma­hathir Mo­hamad to serve out his full five-year term in­stead of mak­ing way for An­war.

In a state­ment echo­ing sim­i­lar de­mands from ri­val Op­po­si­tion par­ties, economic af­fairs min­is­ter Azmin said Mr Ma­hathir’s lead­er­ship was key to en­sur­ing “sta­bil­ity, con­ti­nu­ity and con­sis­tency of govern­ment poli­cies to drive in­vest­ment as well as cre­ate jobs and pros­per­ity for ev­ery­one”.
