PETALING JAYA: Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin has congratulated Rafizi Ramli for winning the PKR deputy president’s race.
“Congratulations on winning the deputy presidency and welcome back to active politics. You are the most talented politician of our generation and (I) wish you the best,” said Khairy in an Instagram story on Monday (May 30)
Rafizi pulled away to win comfortably by garnering 67,895 votes compared to Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail who received 48,797 as of 8.30pm on Sunday (May 29).
The almost 20,000-vote lead has put him in the forefront to be PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s deputy although the official results will only be announced next month.
