Rafizi quits politics ‘not to make things difficult for Anwar’
A PKR source says Rafizi Ramli suddenly quits politics because he does not want to make things difficult for Anwar Ibrahim.

PETALING JAYA, Dec 10 (Sin Chew Daily) — A PKR source told
Sin Chew Daily party vice president Rafizi Ramli suddenly announced to quit politics because he was trying to dissolve the intra-party conflicts and not to make things difficult for Anwar Ibrahim.

Rafizi, who is still PKR’s vice president, is going on leave at this moment.

Sin Chew Daily has attempted to approach Rafizi to find out the reason for his departure but he declined to answer any question related to politics.

The source said Rafizi had left all PKR’s WhatsApp groups since half a year ago, and had closed his own Rafizi media group about two months back.

“He has not attended any party meeting for almost half a year!”

From what we know, Rafizi has not discussed his decision at any meeting although he has consulted and informed party president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim in private.

“Rafizi has become a target of attacks by Azmin’s camp. It is good for him to back off now, for the sake of party unity.

“It is generally believed that Rafizi only quits temporarily and will return once Anwar becomes prime minister, but we can’t say for sure.

“As a matter of fact, Anwar does not want him to make aggressive remarks, and probably because of this he feels there is nothing much he can do now.”

Rafizi tweeted on Sunday that he would focus on artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and Internet of Things (IoT) after leaving politics.

“It’s obvious I tweeted because I am making it clear I am not coming back to politics.”
