But in politics, that is rarely the case. SEX videos in politics are nothing new in this country, but they never fail to make an impact on Malaysians nonetheless. However, he said investigators could not ascertain the identity of the two men in the illegally recorded tryst.

Now the truth and justice will be revealed. Police are professional and we need to respect their investigations. He added that Economic Affairs Minister Azmin Ali should resign if it is confirmed that he was involved in the video.

The arrests on Tuesday came after the police arrested former PKR member Haziq Aziz and five other people over the weekend in multiple locations across the Klang Valley.

Mr Haziq, who was arrested on Jun 14, has been released on bail.
The one minute and 47 second excerpt uploaded on Sunday is not explicit in itself but is part of a longer video showing a man having sex with a woman in a hotel room, local media have reported. The man in the YouTube clip is said to closely resemble Anwar, although the former deputy premier today denied any involvement. YouTube removed the clip today but by then it had spread to pro-government blogs and websites, according to the Star daily newspaper.
Whatever happens, I will stick to the promise I made. Dr Mahathir has variously said he would step down two to three years after becoming prime minister, following the Pakatan Harapan PH coalition's surprise electoral victory in the general election in May last year. Mr Azmin was recently embroiled in a gay sex video scandal which led to a war of words between him and Mr Anwar.

Malaysia's opposition leader sprints through the final stages of a campaign that has brought him to the brink of power. In the past 12 days, Malaysia's opposition leader had criss-crossed the entire country, stumping for his coalition's candidates and driving home its message of change.

It is better that PKR has two warlords constantly trying to kill each other. This would mean they will have no time to run the country, which will make the voters angry.
