After GE-14, Rafizi Ramli declared that his research institute, Invoke, provided an accurate analysis, stating that PH will win the general election. However, he also said that Tun Mahathir is not the primary reason behind the coalition’s victory.
Nevertheless, Rafizi did not contest in GE-14 due to his ongoing court case for revealing confidential bank documents relating to the NFC scandal.
Despite not being a parliamentary member, he did not shy away from the political scene. He challenged Azmin Ali for PKR’s deputy president position. Rafizi was defeated, but was later appointed as PKR vice-president by Anwar Ibrahim.
Lately, the former Pandan MP seems to be quiet in the media with only one to two news a day after March 8th. Rafizi’s decreasing media exposure began after the media reported two current and one former Invoke employees were detained for drug possession on March 3.
Additionally, Rafizi’s presence in PKR seems to be fading, ranking in at number six in the past month with 398 statements as compared to 6 months ago where he was more active than Azmin, ranking at number three with 3,507 statements.
Rafizi has been going through a hard time in the past few months. His latest endeavour is to organise Malaysia’s largest job interview which is not related with politics. Overall, Rafizi seems to be irrelevant in the current political scene, besides being an Anwar’s loyalist.
