Azmin Ali

The official website and blog of Menteri Besar of Selangor, Dato' Menteri Besar Mohamed Azmin Ali.

Born on August 25, 1964 in Singapore, Mohamed Azmi Ali is the deputy president of People's Justice Party (Malay: Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR)), previously known as Justice (Malay: Keadilan) party, which he was one of the founders.

Azmi grew up and educated in Kuala Lumpur. He graduated in 1986 with Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Economics from the University of Minnesota and later obtained Master of Education in Mathematics and Economics from the same institute in 1987.

Upon returning to Malaysia in 1987, Azmin was appointed as a Special Officer to Answer Ibrahim, who was then the Minister of Education. He was promoted to personal secretary to the Minister of Education in 1989 until 1991. Azmi served as Anwar's personal secretary until Mahathir sacked Answer in 1998, which led him to foray into politics.

Azmin became a founding member of the opposition Keadilan, later renamed Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR). In the 10th General Elections in 1999, Azmin was elected as a Member of Selangor Legislative Assembly for Hulu Kelang. He was barred from participating in the 11th General Elections in 2004 due to his conviction for lying in court during the trial against Anwar. The High Court and Court of Appeal have since acquitted him.

Azmin returned to politics in 12th General Elections in 2008, winning the Gombak parliamentary seat and Bukit Antarabangsa state seat in Selangor. He was reelected in the 13th General Elections in 2013 in the constituency of Bukit Antarabangsa. Azmin has served three (3) terms as Member of Selangor Legislative Assembly.

In 2010, the Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) National Congress elected Azmin as a new Deputy President and he was reelected in the most recent party elections in 2014.

Azmin became the Menteri Besar of Selangor on September 23, 2014, following the resignation of the Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) incumbent Khalid Ibrahim, who had been the Menteri Besar of Selangor since 2008, after PKR withdrew its support for his leadership later in the year 2014. In September, 2014, the Sultan of Selangor announced the appointment of Azmin and he was sworn in to office on September 23, 2014.
