‘Formidable’ majority shelved over my conditions on judicial intervention: Anwar

“The root of it is this; it was due to these conditions that I failed to become prime minister.”

(The Vibes) – During the political turmoil of 2020, which was triggered by the infamous Sheraton Move, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim had claimed he possessed a “strong, formidable and convincing majority” to form a government.

Today, despite being mocked over his claim, the opposition leader maintained that his announcement back then still holds true, seeing that the support letters from the party chiefs involved are in his possession.

He added that these documents will be revealed at a later date.

Although he had “the numbers” to assume office as prime minister, Anwar indicated that his bid to wrest Putrajaya was shelved due to some “conditions” that were laid out to the politicians involved at the time.

He said there was an agreement on the matter but the conditions that Pakatan Harapan (PH) had set could not be compromised.

“We rejected shallow racial policies, we rejected corruption, and we must follow the governance and leadership (of PH).

“There was also another condition to prevent the hijacking of the government, which had happened before,” the Port Dickson MP said during a special interview with The Vibes, Malaysiakini, and Sinar Harian at his office in Bukit Gasing, yesterday afternoon.
