KUALA LUMPUR: The DAP is sticking with the consensus made by the Pakatan Rakyat that Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim be the Prime Minister if the coalition wins in the general election.
DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng said it has always
been Pakatan's stand that the candidate for prime minister should be the Opposition Leader.
"As far as DAP is concerned and based on what Pakatan had agreed, we go by the consensus and the choice for prime minister is Anwar.
"We stick by what has been agreed all along," he told reporters when at the Parliament lobby.
On PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang's statement that he welcomed calls that he be made prime minister, Lim said:
"He has the freedom of expression and right to say it."
Hadi told reporters after the party's congress over the weekend that he would be thrilled to be prime minister.
The Ulama and Muslimat wings of the party also reiterated their demands for Hadi to lead the nation.
