TTF: It was only last Friday that I wrote:
Anwar confirmed what TTF said (READ HERE), that his win in Port Dickson is not a sure thing.
He also expressed confidence that Mahathir would hand over the post of Prime Minister to him (see news item below), meaning, he isn’t confident Mahathir will do so.
If he was, he wouldn’t need to repeat himself over and over again to convince even himself that a premiership transition will take place.
Two days later, on Sunday (see news item below), he repeated the exact same thing:
“I know there’s talk that I will not be made PM spreading out there but these people seemed to have forgotten that we (in PH) have agreed to this in our ‘reform agenda'”
Basically, what Anwar has done is to reaffirm what TTF has repeatedly been saying:
“The more Anwar expresses confidence that Mahathir will hand over the nation’s premiership to him, the more he’s doubtful that the power transition will ever take place.”
Anwar knows that Mahathir has every intention of turning Azmin Ali into the next Prime Minister.
PUTRAJAYA: PKR president-elect Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said he has no doubt that Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad will handover the prime minister post to him as per Pakatan Harapan’s agreement.
He dismissed talks that Dr Mahathir would not make way for him to become the next prime minister due to the duo’s history.
“When Dr Mahathir came to see me to talk about an alliance as Pakatan Harapan. I put our past behind. What is the point of being hard?
“Therefore, we have come to an agreement that he will be made prime minister should PH win the general elections and the position will be handed over to me later.
“I know there’s talk that I will not be made PM spreading out there but these people seemed to have forgotten that we (in PH) have agreed to this in our ‘reform agenda’,” he added.
It was stated in the PH agreement that Dr Mahathir would step down and hand over the role of prime minister to Anwar in two years.
Anwar said this in a dinner hosted by Society for the Enlightenment of the Ummah Malaysia (Wadah) last night.
In an address in front of thousands of Wadah members and followers, Anwar also slammed quarters that claimed he was too old for the job and has become irrelevant.
“There are talks that I’m no longer relevant and that I’m cynical… There’s also saying that I don’t believe in the leadership of young people. (But) I am the one who had given most opportunities to young leaders.
“(However) I’m also a stern leader who will remind young leaders against betraying the trust of the people who had supported them.” he said.
