Agreement signed but no date given, Anwar says on transfer of power (WITH VIDEO)
(FMT) – PKR president Anwar Ibrahim today maintained that there was an agreement signed on Jan 7 last year regarding the transition of power between him and Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
He told the Dewan Rakyat that the agreement was signed by every leader from the Pakatan Harapan (PH) coalition.
“The agreement was, if PH won, Mahathir would be prime minister and Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail would be deputy prime minister,” he said. There would also be a transfer of power following his release from prison, once he was eligible to contest, he added.
“That is clear.”
He was responding to Shahidan Kassim (BN-Arau), who had asked him about the transfer of power.
Anwar also told Shahidan that it was not about him or Mahathir.
On the specific date for the handover of power, Anwar said: “The agreement does not specify a date, only that there would be no delays. There was a discussion of one year, and another discussion of two years.”
