Anwar shows signs he is willing to consider Shafie Apdal as Prime Minister

Anwar’s latest remarks seem less ‘resistive’ and more ‘optimistic’, suggesting that he may finally be warming up to the idea of a ‘third’ Prime Minister candidate besides him or Mahathir and is open to the idea of serving as Deputy Prime Minister. Source (pic): TTF Files

For the first time since the inception of Pakatan Harapan Plus, PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has come out in the open to address issues related to the alliance with a tone that suggests his willingness to negotiate.

Prior to this, he was at loggerheads with his allies in AMANAH and the DAP over the question of who gets to be the ninth Prime Minister following his refusal to accept Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad as Pakatan Harapan’s candidate.

It was not until Anwar openly spoke of his distrust of Mahathir that the latter drew the line, telling a Chinese daily that he would stop asking PKR or Anwar to work with him and would seek “other alternatives.”

Worried that they would be forced to ditch Anwar, the DAP and AMANAH quickly convened a meeting with Mahathir and proposed Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal as Prime Minister candidate with Anwar and Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir serving as his deputies.


PETALING JAYA: For the first time since the inception of Pakatan Harapan Plus, PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has come out in the open to address issues related to the alliance with a tone that suggests his willingness to negotiate.

Prior to this, he was at loggerheads with his allies in AMANAH and the DAP over the question of who gets to be the ninth Prime Minister following his refusal to accept Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad as Pakatan Harapan’s candidate.




Yesterday, however, Anwar told his audience in Facebook that Pakatan Harapan (PH) is stable and is ready to speak up for the people as it did before amid talks of cracks appearing within the coalition.

“Some say that there are cracks appearing within the coalition. But from the beginning, the prime minister candidate was agreed on through meetings, without disputing the people’s mandate given to us.

“Maybe there are some who disagreed (decision on the prime minister candidate), this should not be something that should hurt the relations between parties within the coalition,” he said.

Following PKR’s repeated failure to observe a consensus reached by PH Plus during an emergency meeting, the DAP and AMANAH declared their full support for a Mahathir premiership with Anwar serving as deputy Prime Minister.

This was not well received by several PKR leaders, who insisted that Anwar should be named Pakatan Harapan Prime Minister candidate since Mahathir had already held the post twice.

The resistance gave rise to some back and forth between Mahathir and Anwar, each insisting that the other was unfit for the role of Prime Minister.

But it was not until Anwar openly spoke of his distrust of Mahathir that the latter drew the line, telling a Chinese daily that he would stop asking PKR or Anwar to work with him and would seek “other alternatives.”

Worried that they would be forced to ditch Anwar, the DAP and AMANAH quickly convened a meeting with Mahathir and proposed Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal as Prime Minister candidate with Anwar and Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir serving as his deputies.

This caused Anwar to become quite reserved with his comments, though he did issue a rather cryptic message via Facebook an hour or two after Shafie’s candidature was made public, warning his audience to beware of deceptive politicking.

Nevertheless, his latest remarks seem less ‘resistive’ and more ‘optimistic’, suggesting that he may finally be warming up to the idea of a ‘third’ Prime Minister candidate besides him or Mahathir and is open to the idea of serving as Deputy Prime Minister.
