Azmin said he was ready to meet Hadi to iron out the seat negotiations with PAS for the Sungai Besar parliamentary by-election to be held on June 18.
Azmin, who is PKR deputy president, said he has held meetings twice with PAS top leaders, including deputy president Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man, election director Datuk Mustafa Ali and Hadi's political secretary Dr Ahmad Samsuri Mokhtar, on the seat negotiation, despite Hadi's reported firmness on PAS contesting it.
"Sometimes I pity Ustad Hadi.
Azmin was asked of reports about Hadi's denial on the seat negotiations between PKR and PAS.
Asked if PAS was still adamant on contesting, Azmin refused to comment "merely based on assumption."
"The room for discussion is still open.
"Pakatan Harapan and PAS have many good candidates. That's why we are still discussing," he said, adding that there was still a long way to go before the nomination on June 5.
Asked on the outcome of his meeting with Parti Amanah Negara a day earlier, Azmin said Amanah, a breakaway group of PAS, had "mentioned" about fielding its candidate.
"I heard their views. But I remain open to listen to Amanah leaders to find a better solution. I think that the discussions and differences in opinions are the strength for us before a final decision is made.
"I have met with PAS' top leadership, Amanah and I have discussed with the Penang chief minister.
"The series of discussions with PAS, Amanah and Penang CM (Lim Guan Eng) went positively and we hope that a consensus could be reached in the near future," he added

"He should at least lodge a report with the MACC. As much as it will be a setback to the party in the short run, we cannot cover up corruption," Bukit Gasing assemblyman Rajiv Rishyakaran said in a Facebook post on Thursday.
Rafizi Ramli, who is Pandan MP, allegedly sent a WhatsApp message to a chat group claiming incidences of graft in the PKR-led Selangor state government.
"Yesterday, I received complaints from bona fide people that, other than money, there are now demands for women when dealing with the state government.
"They have complained to me and I'm currently collecting information," Rafizi wrote. The claims appeared in the "Solidarity for Anwar" WhatsApp group on Wednesday.
The Star has been trying to contact Rafizi on the claims.

This, he said, was a cowardly way to avoid being sued.
"But we know they won't provide names, because they can't," he said in a blog posting critical of WSJ reporting on Malaysia.
"The truth is that their reporting is based at best on rumours, and at worst on politically motivated lies that they've accepted without proper verification, just for the sake of another sensational headline," he said.
Salleh noted that despite their anonymous sources being proven wrong time and time again, such as their false reports on the new Governor of Bank Negara Malaysia, the WSJ continued to make allegations without any evidence.
Salleh said it was no coincidence that all WSJ's reporting on Malaysia since former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad began his Anti-Najib Campaign was based on one thing - what they claimed anonymous sources and anonymous investigators said.
"Not once has a name been provided for these sources. If they actually exist, then why doesn't the WSJ tell Malaysians who they are?
"Otherwise how can they expect anything they write to be believed, after being proven wrong so many times," Salleh said.
The latest WSJ article, again citing unnamed sources, relates to the purported purchase of a property in London.
