BAGAN DATUK – Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim says he wants to be a leader for all the people and show that he has principles.
“(Perikatan Nasional) keeps saying I am too close to DAP, but then it accepts Gerakan?
“If I become prime minister, I will (take) the best Malays, Chinese and Indians to be with me,” he said in response to Perikatan chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s comment after a Pakatan Harapan tour here on Monday (Nov 14).
“I’d rather be called ‘PM tepi’ (prime minister on the sidelines) than be known as a leader who steals money from the people and country,” he said, referring to the term used on him by detractors for failing to become prime minister after the February 2020 Sheraton Move and subsequent political upheavals.
On Sunday (Nov 13), Muhyiddin said Anwar would never be prime minister until he dissociates himself from DAP.
Separately, Anwar said PAS needs to show it has the morals befitting an Islamic party.
He was asked to comment on Perak PAS commissioner Razman Zakaria’s refusal to apologise for linking Anwar to the “LGBT agenda”.
