An online petition calling for Senior Minister Azmin Ali’s resignation has collected over 143,000 signatures – after just one day – and the figure is rising by the minute.
The petition contains just one line – that Azmin has purportedly failed to live up to public expectations of a senior minister.
The petition has already surpassed the petition calling for Tajuddin Rahman’s removal, which collected 139,706 online signatures – and declared victory in just over 24 hours – when the government announced the Prasarana chairman’s removal with immediate effect. I didn’t think that figure could be surpassed anytime soon, given the storm of outrage over Tajuddin’s distasteful conduct at his press conference.
Well, I was wrong. Azmin is soaring (sinking?) to a new hard-to-beat mark.
A Change.org user going by the name of Kerajaan Gagal (Failed Government) started both petitions.
What do you think? Should Azmin Ali resign?
